"During a routine U.S. Air Force mission over Turkey on June, 17, 1949, cameras captured something strange on the northwest corner of the Western Plateau of Mount Ararat at about 15,500 feet. The excited fliers thought they had stumbled on the ruins of Noah's Ark. According to the Book of Genesis, the first in the Bible, the Ark "came to rest on the mountains of Ararat" after spending 150 days at sea.

Their superiors reviewed the film, wrote a report and filed it under "Ararat Anomaly," where it remained classified as "Secret" for half a century. In 1993, Porcher Taylor began asking hard questions about the file. Taylor is a scholar at the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies specializing in satellite intelligence and diplomacy. He also is a professor of law at the University of Richmond Law School and knows how to ask questions.

To Taylor's amazement, this professional scholar discovered that in addition to the 1949 military film footage there also were classified photographs of the anomaly snapped by a U-2 spy plane in 1956, high-resolution images taken by the CIA in 1973 using a KH-9 military remote-sensing satellite and even more sophisticated images obtained by the CIA from flyovers in 1976, 1990 and 1992 by an advanced KH-11 satellite.

Indeed, Taylor found evidence of images of the Mount Ararat Anomaly spanning nearly 50 years - and all of it classified. After many thwarted attempts to learn why, Taylor filed Freedom of Information Act requests, which also were rejected. That is, until the Defense Intelligence Agency in Washington released six photo frames from the 1949 military footage."

The images that were released clearly show a boat like structure.



When we examine the images more closely a strange robotic figure can clearly be seen walking amidst the wreckage.

By comparing the size of the robot to that of the anomaly the robot can be estimated at approximately 75 feet tall.

Considering the date of the photograph it must be assumed the robot is not of terrestrial origin. It is also likely the anomaly is an alien spacecraft that crashed into Mt Ararat. This could have occured in Biblical times.
