Activists Want Trump To Support The Right To Go Topless

There will at least 40 protests around the world this weekend that don’t concern white supremacy, Donald Trump or freedom of speech.

This one is about the right for a woman to go topless in public without fear of arrest or shame.

It’s all part of the 10th Annual Go Topless Day, a global protest held every August since 2007, dedicated to ensuring the right for women to go shirtless if they wish.

This years’s event takes place on Saturday. It protests gender inequality where nipples are concerned, according to organizer Nadine Gary. She told HuffPost it is unfair that women can be publicly shamed or arrested if they choose to go topless ― a problem men don’t face at all.

To that end, all the participants ― women and men ― will, depending on the city, either bare all or wear pasties over their nipple areas. 

“In true equality, either everyone has it or no one has it,” Gary told HuffPost.


Go Topless Day is organized by a group of UFO believers called the Raelians, who believe that humans were created by advanced extraterrestrial scientists known as the “Elohim.” As such, not allowing women to go topless is an insult to the aliens’ artistry.

The group has been fighting for topless rights for more than a decade, and Gary feels as if a change is truly going to come soon.

“Far more women are activists than when we began,” she said. “Ocean City, Maryland, is allowing topless bathing.

Gary also points to Fort Collins, Colorado, which wanted to prohibit the baring of female breasts in public, only to have a judge declare the ordinance unconstitutional.

“Women all over are sticking out their necks,” she said. “And there is much less slut-shaming then there used to be.”

Gary predicts that the Supreme Court will soon consider the rights of women to go topless.

“There’s a case, Tagami Vs. The City Of Chicago, slowly making its way there,” Gary said.

The case involves Sonoko Tagami, who participated in a Go Topless Day rally back in 2014 when she was cited for indecent exposure. Tagami is arguing that she was wearing opaque body paint as part of a political protest, which makes her toplessness part of her First Amendment right to free speech.

Despite a Supreme Court that is currently a 5-4 conservative majority, Gary is hoping for the best.

She cites a ruling from June in the case of Sessions v. Morales-Santana, in which Justice Ruth Ginsburg wrote that a law which “differentiates on the basis of gender” is subject to “heightened scrutiny” and can only survive by serving “important governmental objectives.”

As a result, any classification based on sex differences “must substantially serve an important governmental interest today,” Ginsburg wrote.


Gary and her fellow topless advocates are hoping that President Donald Trump will find this cause one that he can truly support.

“Trump hasn’t tweeted this out, but he has a beautiful First Lady and daughter and it would be nice to own up to their bodies and femininity,” she said.

Bizarre UFOs seen on radar near Salisbury Plain by 11 people including RAF wing commander

Alan Turner OBE said he and 10 others watched in amazement as “six or seven” unexplainable blips appeared on radar they were monitoring.

Mr Turner was duty military supervisor at RAF Sopley, in Hampshire, when the inexplicable events unfolded.

He said: “The duty civil supervisor drew my attention to a situation on radar the likes of which neither of us had ever encountered.

“Emanating from a point some twenty nautical miles east of the eastern extremity of the Salisbury Plain danger area were a series of six or seven blips moving on a south-easterly track each being separated from the other by about six miles.”

He said that strangely, at about forty miles from the point they appeared on radar, they disappeared but were “followed almost immediately by a replacement at the point of origin”.

He established they were at 3,000 feet when they first appeared on radar, but were rising rapidly to be at 60,000 feet once they disappeared.

He said: “To climb to such a height in only forty miles was beyond the ability of any fighter aircraft at the time.”

Mr Turner said the phenomenon was witnessed by four civil and six military controllers on duty at the time in other areas.

He said: “I called Heathrow radar to discover that they, also, were seeing a similar picture. 

“The same situation prevailed in the fighter control operations rooms at RAF Neatishead, near Norwich, Norfolk. 

“The three units involved operated different radars from each other thus different frequencies were in use.”

A baffled Mr Turner made checks with the Met Office to try to get to the bottom of what happened.

He said: “The weather forecast from the south of England was calm and sunny. 

“I called the Met Office to confirm the strength of the upper winds to find that they were also relatively calm and were about fifty degrees off the south-easterly track of the blips.”

Mr Turner insisted the Met Office also confirmed there were no Met balloons or probes airborne at the time.

He said: “I am at a loss to explain what I, and many other people, saw. 

“In those days aircraft could not climb at such a rate. To be seen on displays by three different ground radars, plus the airborne radar in the Canberra, is also a mystery.”

Details of the case, which happened in the summer of 1971, have been revealed by veteran British UFO investigator Philip Mantle, as one of his most memorable investigations, as he prepares to retire from the UFO conference scene.

Mr Mantle will recount this and a number of other UFO cases at the Outer Limits Magazine UFO conference in Hull on September 9.

Nibiru coming? Planet X is not alone but a whole STAR SYSTEM claims doom prophet

The mythological planet is set to appear in the skies from September 23, according to Nibiru conspiracy theorists before passing our planet and “causing devastation” in October.

Planet X, or Nibiru, is believed to have a vast orbit which some claim will one day pass so close to Earth that its gravitational pull could wreak havoc on Earth, triggering earthquakes and other catastrophic events.

However, until now most people had thought Nibiru and Planet X were one and the same – a planet with such a large pull it will cause great tsunamis and earthquakes on Earth.

Yet, Christian numerologist David Meade who has predicted the September date using bible codes and signs in the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt, said it was actually a mini solar system that is on its way.

Speaking on Late Night in the Midlands, a US conspiracy theory radio show, he said: “It’s a mini constellation made up of a dark star, smaller than our son, which hosts seven orbiting bodies.

“Some are smaller than our moon, a couple are larger than our Earth.

“The dark star is called Nemesis, or some people call it Planet X.

“The blue planet is the Blue Kachina and the planet larger than Earth orbiting the dark star is Nibiru or the planet of the crossing according to the ancient Sumerians and the destroyer.

“Another object some refer to as helion, there are a couple of other objects. It is a very small solar system.” 

Mr Meade said Nemesis was a red or brown dwarf star.

There is, however, no scientific evidence to back up the existence of any of the bodies he referred to in the Nemesis solar system.

NASA has stated the claims are a hoax, and no large object will likely threaten the Earth for at least several hundreds of years.

Yesterday, Express.co.uk revealed how Mr Meade had claimed Planet X has been secretly filmed from astronomical observatories, and is making its way to Earth as we speak.

He claimed to have been shown secret footage which proves it exists, but bizarrely had not shared this with the public he claims he is trying to warn.

Mr Meade said: “I’ve seen it and he told me the name of the observatory he has seen it at, and he said he had a secret film of it, which he later sent me.”

August 21’s solar eclipse, he claims, was a sign before Nibiru appears in the sky to everyone from September 23, before passing and causing the apocalypse in October.

The September 23 date came from codes in the Bible and also a “date marker” shown by the pyramids of Giza in Egypt.

He says he has discovered two tunnels set at precise angles in the Great Pyramid that will point to significant celestial objects after September 20.

The myth was born in 1976 when writer Zecharia Sitchin claimed two ancient Middle Eastern cultures – the Babylonians and Sumerians – told of a giant planet – Nibiru – that orbited the Sun every 3,600 years.

Mr Meade said: “It is very strange indeed that both the Great Sign of Revelation 12 and the Great Pyramid of Giza both point us to one precise moment in time – September 20 to 23, 2017.”

The Planet X conspiracy theory was given a boost earlier this year when NASA announced the discovery of a new planet in our solar system which they named Planet Nine.

They found evidence of a real planet up to 10 times the mass of Earth in the outer reaches of the Solar System, in the constellation Orion.

However, NASA says Planet Nine will not pass earth, and the Planet X theory of an apocalypse is a hoax.

There have been many predicted end of world dates that have all come and passed before.

ALIEN UFO SHOCK: ‘Crystal clear flying saucer’ captured on camera by father and son

The two amazing pictures of the circular metallic-looking object were snapped by father and son Roy and Ralph Keane when they were in their back garden in Kilsyth, Melbourne, Australia.

The pair sent them to veteran British UFO investigator Philip Mantle to examine.

A letter alongside the snaps read: “The darker picture was hurriedly taken at approximately 1pm using an incorrect light setting during overcast weather conditions. 

“The other photo was taken at approximately 1.30pm after the camera setting had been adjusted to obtain a lighter picture and, by that time, the weather had greatly improved.”

They said that each time it was photographed, it appeared to move on a trajectory to their right as they looked up.

The father and son added: “Almost immediately after each picture was taken, the flying object seemed to momentarily hover, then dip and move to the left.”

Eventually it disappeared behind trees.

Mr Mantle, who is retiring from the UFO conference scene, has revealed the images as part of an upcoming talk on his most memorable cases.

He said: “UFO photographs worth further study are rare but to receive such photographs from the other side of the world was a first for me. 

The expert enhanced the pictures to look for any evidence of a hoax.

His report said: “Using extreme gamma adjustments and edge detection algorithms – no supporting wires or other linear edge features were found… so the object is not suspended by wire – as the cloud contrast is good, this would have been found.

“This does appear to be a solid reflective object that is unsupported in mid-air. 

“Due to the high shutter speeds used, it may well be moving at reasonable speed without any discernible image blurring.”

Mr Mantle had an associate photography expert Winston Keech examine the pictures.

He said Mr Keech prepared a report that ruled out the objects being hung from strings.

The expert enhanced the pictures to look for any evidence of a hoax.

His report said: “Using extreme gamma adjustments and edge detection algorithms – no supporting wires or other linear edge features were found… so the object is not suspended by wire – as the cloud contrast is good, this would have been found.

People Have Been Passing Off A Photo Of A Cavs Parade As Trump Rally Crowd

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump held a campaign-style rally at the Phoenix Convention Center in Arizona.

Prior to the start of the rally, some Trump supporters began sharing a photo on social media that was purported to show a massive crowd gathered outside the Phoenix Convention Center.


“Massive crowd waiting outside for the Trump rally in Phoenix,” read a caption on a tweet posted to the Twitter account @TEN_GOP, which describes itself as “Unofficial Twitter of Tennessee Republicans” and has more than 73,000 followers. It garnered nearly a thousand retweets before it was deleted.

But tweets referencing the photo began disappearing after astute social media users pointed out the photograph was actually taken in Cleveland, Ohio in June 2016, at the parade celebrating the Cavaliers’ NBA title. Cleveland.com photographer Joshua Gunter took the original photo, which can be seen here.

The Twitter account @TEN_GOP subsequently apologized for spreading misinformation.

The Arizona Republic noted that it should have been obvious to anyone who saw it that the photo was not taken anywhere near Arizona: “Anyone who is at all familiar with Phoenix should have known better. It’s a desert people. Who really thought Phoenix had that much green?”

The photo snafu was pointed out at roughly the same time Trump was blasting the “crooked media” for “fake news.”

According to Cleveland.com, this is not the first time a photograph from the Cavs parade has been misrepresented. The conservative website Breitbart reportedly passed off another parade photo as a snapshot of a crowd at an August 2016 Trump rally.

Bizarre ‘alien life form’ that looks ‘lost on Earth’ baffles onlookers in shock video

Huang Meilan filmed the mysterious insect on rocks in Hsinchu, Taiwan on August 29. 

She said she was “shocked” by the creepy crawly and had “never seen anything like it before”.

Ms Meilan said: “I found this on the ground and it caught my eye. 

“It was so strange and people said different things about it. But I wanted to know what it actually was.”

Ms Meilan appealed online and many suggested the brittle looking insect appeared to be several “horsehair worms” tangled together. 

The parasitic creatures become entwined while they use a host to breed.

Others believed the creature was a “mutant species” of stick insect – or even a form of alien life.

Miffy Chu said: “It could be a new creature made from a genetic mutation that we’ve never seen before. 

“It’s a bit freaky watching it, it looks like an alien life form that has got lost on Earth.”

The find adds to evidence that ichthyosaurs, some of which grew to more than 20 metres, gave birth to live young unlike egg-laying dinosaurs.

Dean Lomax, from the University of Manchester, who co-led the UK-German team, said: “This specimen provides new insights into the size range of the species, but also records only the third example of an ichthyosaurus known with an embryo. That’s special.”

The creature, named ichthyosaurus somersetensis, was discovered on the Somerset coast during the 1990s but ended up in the collections of the Lower Saxony State Museum in Hanover, Germany.

The new study also showed that a tail from another ichthyosaur had been added to the skeleton to make it appear more complete and visually appealing for display.

Palaeontologist Dr Sven Sachs, from the Bielefeld Natural History Museum in Germany, who also took part in the research, said: “It is often important to examine fossils with a very critical eye. 

“Sometimes, as in this instance, specimens aren’t exactly what they appear to be.

“However, it was not ‘put together’ to represent a fake, but simply for a better display specimen.

“Specimens like this provide palaeontologists with important information about when these animals lived.

“Many examples of ichthyosaurus are from historical collections and most do not have good geographical or geological records, but this specimen has it all.”

The specimen was the largest of the ichthyosaurus family of ichthyosaurs on record, said the scientists writing in the journal Acta Palaeontologica Polonica. 

Mega earthquake ‘could strike in mid Atlantic within TWO days’ warns researcher

Earthquake-WarningGetty

A huge earthquake could strike tomorrow, warns Frank Hoogerbeets.

New age earthquake researcher Frank Hoogerbeets warned a major magnitude 7 quake could strike within two days. 

His website Ditrianum.org issues earthquake warnings when Mr Hoogerbeets thinks the alignments of celestial bodies mean tectonic activity on earth is going to increase.

Mr Hoogerbeets, 48, uses a non-scientifically recognised way of predicting earthquakes based on planetary alignments with Earth, but has built up several followers who are convinced he is right.

His latest video warning, also available on YouTube, said we entered a “critical period” on Monday this week, which will continue until Friday.

He told Express.co.uk: “From August 28 to September 1 will be critical because of two planetary alignments, one of which is Jupiter-Mercury-Uranus. 

[embedded content]

“In July the same planets aligned and a magnitude 7.7 earthquake was triggered within three days.”

Mr Hoogerbeets warned up until September 1 there would be a seismic increase and there was a risk of a magnitude 7 quake – considered a major event.

He said the “seismic increase” was “anticipated until September 1, with a strong possibility of a magnitude 7 plus earthquake.”

Mr Hoogerbeets was not specific about where the quake might strike, but warned that activity had increased off the coast of north eastern Canada, which had affected the north mid Atlantic ridge and, in turn the Mediterranean.

Mr Hoogerbeets also issued a wider warning saying because there have “only been three magnitude 7 plus earthquakes in 2017,” it meant more were likely towards the end of the year – like in 2004 when the world witnessed the horrific boxing day tsunami that hit south east Asia.

He said: “This is way below average. A similar situation existed in 2004 with no magnitude 7 plus earthquakes between February and July. 

“But no less than 12 magnitude 7 plus earthquakes occurred in the second half of that year, including a magnitude 8.1 and 9.3 earthquake in December.

“If the same trend is going to happen this year then we are in for quite a seismic ride between September and December, with a strong possibility of a magnitude 8 plus earthquake in these last four months whereby a magnitude 7.8 or 7.9 is more than likely to occur in September, because the situation will be similar to April 2015 at the time of the magnitude 7.8 earthquake in Nepal.

“Because of the low average of large earthquakes this year, most earthquake prone countries in the world should be on watch.”

Earthquake-WarningFrank Hoogerbeets

Earthquake warning: Frank Hoogerbeets

Whenever the three objects in our solar system lined up there was a significant earthquake anytime from the day before to one or two days afterwards.

Frank Hoogerbeets


His technique, used on his new age website from his home in the Netherlands, has been ridiculed by mainstream scientists who say the position of the planets has no impact on seismic activity.

Mr Hoogerbeets has made several predictions with distinctly mixed results. 

There have been significant quakes after some of his warnings, but he is no longer specific about where they will strike or the exact day.

In December 2015 he was mocked after predicting a powerful magnitude eight earthquake that could “change the world forever” would strike on the 11 or 12 of the month, only for it to fail to materialise.

There was also the much publicised mega quake he warned was about to hit California in May 2015 – but it too never arrived.

But Mr Hoogerbeets continues with his work and has asked for donations on his YouTube channel.

So should we fear his latest warning?

Mr Hoogerbeets admits he also relies on messages from spirits, crop circle formations, and so-called “key Earth dates” in order to predict when earthquakes will strike.

Astronomer Phil Plait, who writes for New Scientist, previously said of his predictions: “Let me be clear: No, it won’t. It can’t. 

“There is simply no way an alignment of planets can cause an earthquake on Earth. It’s literally impossible.”

Mr Hoogerbeets said seismologists needed to take note because “whenever the three objects in our solar system lined up there was a significant earthquake anytime from the day before to one or two days afterwards”.

Nibiru WARNING: ‘I’ve seen top secret image of Planet X… and it IS coming to Earth’

Christian conspiracy theorist David Meade, who claims the alleged giant planet Nibiru – which is officially unknown to astronomical science – will pass the Earth causing a global apocalypse in October, says he has been shown secret footage which proves it exists.

Speaking on Late Night in the Midlands, a US conspiracy theory radio show, Mr Meade said: “The sightings are increasing in my opinion.”

He claimed he had spoken to a professor of astronomy in Paris based at a large observatory, who told him Nibiru was real.

He said: “I asked ‘is it real?’ And he said ‘oh yes’.

Nibiru-WarningGetty*YouTube

Nibiru warning: David Meade claims to have seen video of the Planet X system.

“I’ve seen it and he told me the name of the observatory he has seen it at, and he said he had a secret film of it, which he later sent me.

“He had taken it with his phone and it is an actual photo of the system, he got out of the observatory at a very high level, and he has shared it with me since.

“I have not shared it with the public, but I have seen it.”

He said a fellow conspiracy theorist had also shared a new snap with him.

Mr Meade added: “A colleague of mine recently sent me photo which makes it appear Planet X is currently right over the North Pole.

“He was sent a photograph by an individual who was flying out over the state of Utah.

[embedded content]

“It happened 20,000 to 25,000 feet above sea level.

“You really need to be that high to get a good pic of the Planet X system.”

Mr Meade said the image showed the sun with Planet X beyond.

He said: “It is one of the best photos I have seen of the Planet X system, it is not a lens flare, it was taken through an aircraft Plexiglass window and is right on spot so the sightings are increasing in my opinion.”

He said the professor in Paris had sent him “a minute and a half of video of the Planet X system” but he had “never shared it with the public”.

He was asked by show host Michael Vara: “Why not? Because people would want to see it before it goes boom.”

Mr Meade replied: “I’m thinking about it. I don’t have a green light yet. I will think about it, it is a wonderful video taken from an observatory managed by three major superpowers taken at night.

I have not shared it with the public, but I have seen it.

David Meade


“You can see the moon and you can see the Nibiru system

“It is very clear, but no one knows he has got it and I don’t want to put him in danger – it looks absolutely authentic.”

Mr Meade claims the solar eclipse of August 21 was a sign before Nibiru appears in the sky to everyone from September 23, before passing and causing the apocalypse in October.

He claims the September 23 date came from codes in the Bible and also a “date marker” shown by the pyramids of Giza in Egypt.

He says he has discovered two tunnels set at precise angles in the Great Pyramid that will point to significant celestial objects after September 20.

Planet X, or Nibiru, is reportedly a huge planet with a vast orbit that conspiracy theorists claim will one day pass so close to Earth that its gravitational pull could wreak havoc on our planet, triggering earthquakes and other catastrophic events.

Nazca Tomb: Shock ‘Roswell link’ made in ’20 alien bodies found in tomb’ probe

Nazca-RoswellYouTube*Steve Mera

Nazca Tomb: Steve Mera (pictured) was told that metal allegedly found at Roswell was in the tomb.

British investigators who travelled to Cusco in Peru to try to establish the truth of the “world-altering” claims said they had been told “self-folding foil-like metal” was found inside the tomb in Nazca.

It is said to be similar to a type of aluminium claimed to have been found near the alleged Roswell flying saucer crash site in New Mexico that was said could repair itself if bent.

Yesterday, Express.co.uk revealed a new twist in the mystery – after claims emerged live beings were seen in the tunnels where more than 20 mummified bodies were allegedly found.

Historians and many UFO researchers have branded the three-fingered mummies an audacious hoax.

However, UK-based UFO investigators Steve Mera and Barry Fitzgerald travelled to Peru to try to establish if they could be genuine.

They spoke to members of the Inkari Institute, an archaeological research team in Cusco, Peru, which was allegedly handed the bodies by blackmarket tomb raiders.

The pair have made a video documentary charting their adventure.

Nazca-TombSteve Mera

Nazca Tomb: Steve Mera inspects ‘alien mummies’ at a secret location in Peru.

New video series called “the Mysterious Bodies of Peru,” released on YouTube in the UAMN TV channel, reveals claims about the metal being discovered in the tomb.

Mr Mera spoke to camera after a meeting with the institute which included its president Thierry Jamin.

He said: “There is an international racket where people might be buying artefacts illegally.

“The more we get into this, the bigger the hole is getting. 

“Terry (Jamin) is battling to keep artefacts in the country, he thinks it is important they stay in Peru.

“Some of these things are getting out there, and one of these things was apparently just like the Roswell footage, sorry the Roswell incident.

“This foil that unfolds itself – some of this was found and sold for only $8,000 to someone in Asia.

“You can’t fathom that – if that was true there is an international market for these discoveries.”

The Roswell flying saucer mystery has been at the heart of the UFO scene.

In July 1947 the US military sensationally announced in a press release it had found the remains of a crashed flying saucer in the desert nearby.

But the following day it retracted the statement, saying it was in fact a damaged US Air Force air balloon.

Witnesses later came forward to say there had been alien bodies within the “crashed craft”, which along with the wreckage were then taken to a mysterious top-secret military base.

There have been claims and counter claims, including that the bodies were crash test dummies and it had been a top-secret balloon spying on the Russians.

All the confusion means it is one of the world’s biggest conspiracy theories.

However, since then people came forward to say they saw metal from the crash site which unfolded itself if bent.

Yet, to date no one has ever produced any of the metal.

Mr Mera and Mr Fitzgerald were told during the interview the area around the tomb had a “strong electromagnetic field”.

Mr Fitzgerald said: “Our heads were left spinning from what we were told and we were promised a lot more information.”

Some of these things are getting out there, and one of these things was apparently just like the Roswell incident.

Steve Mera


Last month, Express.co.uk revealed the first pictures of what is alleged to be a secret tomb where several mummified aliens were found in Peru.

Gaia.com, the paranormal website behind the outlandish claims, says that at least five mummified aliens have been found buried in Nazca, Peru.

The website has released a five videos about the “discoveries,” and insists a genuine investigation is underway.

The latest disclosure came after scientists and the Peruvian World Congress on Mummy Studies released statements saying they believed the creatures were hoaxes.

Mexican journalist Jamie Maussan, who is leading the probe in the Gaia.com videos, has previously investigated a series of alleged alien body discoveries which turned out to be hoaxes.

However, the outlandish claims continue to be made by the Gaia.com team.

Many ufologists believe the Gaia.com films are promoting a massive hoax.

Nigel Watson, author of the UFO Investigations Manual said they were “plaster of Paris fakes”.

Express.co.uk has asked Gaia.com and Mr Maussan for details about the discoveries.

We asked for the location, who found them, whether it was part on an official dig, and if there were any pictures of the discovery.

Both Gaia.com and Mr Maussan failed to answer.

However, footage in a subsequent video shows what appears to be the entrance to the tomb and mummified remains buried in there, at an undisclosed location.

Mr Maussan said at an earlier press conference about the discovery that the mummified burial of the bodies suggests they once coexisted with humans.

He said: “These mummies were buried in human tombs, in sacred places.

“This means that they had coexisted with our ancestors, were not enemies and had, to a certain extent, a degree of respect between both races or cultures.”

Gaia.com claim tests show the bones to be 1,700 years old, and the beings had three fingers and elongated skulls.

For years there have been claims by alien conspiracy theorists that aliens visited our ancestors and helped them build great structures like the Pyramids of Giza and Stonehenge.

Mr Mera and Mr Fitzgerald say they have set out to get to to the truth, and will be releasing more findings.

In a press release, the pair said: “Recently, the internet exploded with images of newly discovered mummies, discovered in the region of Nazca, Peru.

“This is not the first time such earth shaking discoveries have been found, only to turn out to have a more mundane explanation. 

“Could these recent findings be what we have been waiting for?

“We have recently returned from Peru after conducting a painstaking and thorough investigation that encompasses physical examinations of the bodies, scrutinising X-rays and scans, reviewing medical conclusions and being cast into the murky depths of the illegal black market.”

Proof of time travel? Man painted ‘scrolling through smartphone’ 80 years ago

Towards the lower right of the painting one of the men appears to be doing what so many people do nowadays – scrolling through and staring at a smartphone, seemingly oblivious to al those around him. 

Yet, the striking picture is of events that unfolded in the 1630s – 200 years before electricity was invented.

The picture, entitled “Mr Pynchon and the Settling of Springfield” is based on a pre-Revolutionary War meet between two prominent New England tribes, the Pocumtuc and Nipmuc, and English settlers at the village of Agawam where Massachusetts is today.

It was painted in 1937 by the late Italian semi-abstract painter Umberto Romano.

Internet commentators have discussed what the black, rectangular object he is looking at could be.

Brian Anderson wrote on Motherboard.vice.com: “It’s not clear exactly who this man is, but he might as well be popping off a selfie or thumbing through his news feed. 

“He seems to gaze into the handheld device in such a way that renders all-too-familiar today, as if he’s just read a bad tweet or recoiling from a Trump-related push notification from the Times. 

“He would almost look unremarkable, if only he and the world around him existed at any point in the past decade.”

Conspiracy theory website Ancient Code said in a discussion about the painting: “Could this parting be evidence of time travel? 

“According to a scene drawn on a painting, a native American man seems to stare at an artefact that according to some is eerily similar to a modern-day smartphone.

“In fact, in the painting created in 1937, the native American man holds the ‘device’ while staring at it, and according to many, its as if he’s actually holding a smartphone.”

However, historians have dismissed the suggestion as nonsense.

Dr Margaret Bruchac from the University of Pennsylvania said: “It does bear a rather uncanny resemblance, both in the way, it’s being held and the way it focuses his attention, to a smartphone.”

However, she said the object is more likely an iron blade.

She said: “The painting is a romanticised artistic genre, making it hard to tell.”

Historian Daniel Crown said it was probably a hand-held mirror, which were widely used after the 17th century.

He said: “To put it in the kindliest possible terms, Romano’s so-called ‘abstract’ aesthetic was wilfully ambiguous.

“When Romano painted the mural, Americans were obsessed with the ‘noble savage’ trope. Given the scene’s focus on the founding of Springfield, Romano, in a reductive fashion, was probably trying to capture the introduction of modernity into a curious but technologically stunted community, which was instantly bewitched by Pynchon’s treasure trove of shiny objects.” 

Dr Crown said the item may also have been a religious text – one of the gospels.

He said: “These did exist at the time and were roughly the same rectangular shape.”
