LUCIFER is an acronym for the instruments lengthy title, “Large Binocular Telescope Near-infrared Utility with Camera and Integral Field Unit for Extragalactic Research.” Why would someone choose such a name? Even the acronym was crafted from only some of the letters of the words in the title above. They had to work at getting that name, like they really wanted to say something, or at least get our attention. Well, they have it now. The instrument called LUCIFER is attached to the University of Arizona’s Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) located on Mt. Graham in south-eastern Arizona. And the Vatican-owned Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope (VATT) is adjacent to it.1
According to Tom Horn and Chris Putnam, the Vatican is awaiting an alien saviour. This is what they write in their book “Exo-Vaticana”, so says Ecumenical News.2
Horn said Brother Guy Consolmagno, who has also been called the papal astronomer, told the authors some astounding information. (emphasis added)
“He (the papal astronomer) says without apology that very soon the nations of the world are going to look to the aliens for their salvation”, said Horn.
