Patterns of Prophecy – Alan Vaughan
On November 10, 1970, I meditated on the next flight, Apollo 14. I filed with the Central Premonitions Registry this prediction:
"The Apollo 14 flight scheduled for January 31, 1971, will be successful. The landing on the moon may be a bit rough, though. Some unusual rocks may be found in a crater or on a crater's slope. During the time of Apollo 14's flight, there may be a headline something like 'Three Fliers Released.'"
The Apollo 14 was, of course, successful.
The only "rough- ness" with the landing was a malfunction of radar just prior to the command module's landing. One rock on a crater's slope did seem of unusual interest. As stated in The New York Times of February 13, 1971:
"Of greatest interest to the scientists was an ash-white rock fragment that Captain Shepard and Commander Mitchell chipped off a boulder near the rim of Cone crater. . . . It was one of several whitish rocks the astronauts saw that scientists believe may be remnants of the moon's original crust."
A newspaper connection between the Apollo 14 flight and the release of fliers seemed to be fulfilled on March 9, 1971, when The New York Times ran a front-page story of four American airmen being released by Turkish kidnappers. On the same page was an article about the Apollo 14's New York parade. That part of the prediction came true four months after the initial meditation.
