Nuclear Close Call: did a UFO almost trigger a missile launch?

The History Channel replayed an episode from its series “Hangar 1: the UFO Files” in which the producers question whether a UFO may have armed and then disarmed a nuclear missile launch computer.

What Happened?

Nuclear Close Call

It sounds like a tabloid headline, but the question is a valid one: Did UFOs almost trigger an accidental nuclear war in 1982? The incident in question occurred in south-central Ukraine on the evening of October 4th, according to official depositions from Soviet military units and interviews with one of the officers in charge of the investigation. There were multiple witnesses to the event, which took place between 7:30 and 9:37 pm, and many of them were Soviet military officers and personnel stationed at a long-range nuclear missile base in Usovo.

My Analysis (for “Other Ponts in Time”)

In all the years that I have been erecting and analyzing Astrological charts, this one may be the first that I have seen what denotes a very clear symbol on the face of it. The Grand Trine made up of Saturn, Ascendant and Midheaven gives the chart a balanced feel, and the Neptune/Ascendant Opposition shows a distinct horizon line, but the significant part is the image created by the aspects to the Moon. Does it not look like a rocket?

Because there is a Yod (Finger of God) pointing at the Moon, I would hazard a guess that this was spiritually pre-ordained. In fact, the interference demonstrated by the taking over the controls of the rocket launching may have been the first time that humans realized that someone or something ‘out there’ did not want us to blow up the earth or destroy life on a mass scale. It shows to me that should anyone have tried to launch a ballistic missile, the ‘powers that be’ would have disabled the process. That’s reassuring.

The urban legend surrounding this event says that there was a large UFO hovering over the area for more than two hours that night. Most people have put two-and-two together and come to the conclusion that the instigator of the launch computer’s ‘malfunction’ was in that UFO. Whether that is true or not cannot be proven now, but it makes for an interesting discussion.

Because the Moon is the symbol of “Mother” in any Astrological chart, this seems to show that Mother decided enough was enough about threats to the earth and decided to take direct action to stop that threat.


UFO Moon

The Moon had been full during this time period. Does this mean that someone used the Moon as a decoy of some sort? The UFO described seems to be the equivalent of a large bright Moon. Could they have been mistaken?

However, the question remains, if it wasn’t a UFO, who (or what) switched on the missile launch sequence and then switched it off again, 15 seconds later? It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that something unusual occurred.

At any rate, we’re all still here rather than being blown to smithereens. That must count for something, doesn’t it?
