Approximately 3,000,000 Altimarians have been facing the end of their civilization and planet as their dying home star, Y Ophiucus in the constellation Ophiucus (2860 light years from Earth), has grown dangerously unstable nearing the end of its life-cycle. These Altimarians have been seeking safe relocation from their dying star to a suitable safe planet. Star Nations has determined that Earth can provide a safe location and suitable gravity and atmosphere conditions for them.
As Star Nations' ambassador ('Councillor') for and on Earth, I have been in dialogue with Star Nations, and even polled a sample group of Humans (workers at NSA and CIA with clearances for extraterrestrial matters). Part of the discussion included that the Altimarians are a kindred race to those of the planet Variant-Altimar [orbiting the nearby star V 2393 Ophiucus], and some years ago sent 12 Altimarian environmental scientist volunteers to Earth. These scientists have been working quietly on remediation of various human-damaged environmental systems on Earth. All parties agreed that Humankind owes these Altimarian scientists a large debt of gratitude for their critically-important programs of environmental remediation. And that one way in which Earth can show such gratitude is for Earth to welcome the Altimarians and provide them a location of refuge.
The upshot of these dialogues was consensus that Earth is proper as a settlement location, and with a Human population of 7.4 billion can easily accommodate these 3 million Altimarian refugees. A drawing of one such Altimarian, Zanna, a woman is at:
And so on May 1, 2016, eight large Altimarian space vessels landed in the U.S. Southwest between Capitol Reef National Park and Glen Canyon National Recreation Area on undeveloped U.S. Bureau of Land Management desert lands at 5000 feet altitude southeast of Hanksville, Utah. They established a subterranean Settlement Site. Their settlement is relatively compact, 1-1/2 miles by 1-1/2 miles, and extends 2000 feet into the ground. The Altimarian refugees have quickly constituted a self-sufficient Settlement requiring little assistance, and are prepared to repay Earth's kindness.
I, as Star Nations' representative, have requested that the UN grant recognition of, and protection for, this Altimarian Settlement Site as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The UN has as yet not responded.
On June 21, 2017 I was taken by starcraft to the Altimarian Settlement Site and discussed with them their role in helping Earth's future.
As further developments occur, I will keep you posted.
