A fact that is stranger than fiction; the Vatican has astronomical observatories named Lucifer, which is approved for the one located on Mount Graham, in Safford, Arizona, USA, and which means prince of demons, among other meanings.

For the scientists of the five German universities that installed it, that name was the one that best suited the technical characteristics of their instruments, as a spokesman for the University of Arizona, Daniel Stolte, told Popular Science in 2010. 

Technically, this Lucifer contains an instrument cooled to -213° Celsius (-351 °F) to make observations in the near-infrared spectrum. There, the formation of stars and planets is usually observed and very distant young galaxies. 

Also, it has three interchangeable cameras and the application of spectroscopy at different resolutions. It has a vast field of view and high-resolution capabilities, which allows for immense imaging.

That this institution is run by priests of the Society of Jesus, known as Jesuits, may not sound so strange because they were traditionally in charge of the most intriguing missions of the Catholic Church, and their direct access to the popes gives them certain privileges. 

What could eventually add mystery to the Vatican’s astronomical observatories would be the mysterious object they are apparently looking for, which would come from a very remote distance, according to researchers at the YouTube channel Right Hemispheric Remote Viewing.

If it reached Earth, the cosmic object would cause three days of darkness, create an environment characterized by fire and sulfur, and would be a source of great fear for those who are aware of the search, according to presenter John Vivanco. 

It appears that the area of Mount Graham used for the observatory facility was expropriated from its original native owners by the observatory’s builders.

In addition to the atmospheric purity, which qualifies the place as ideal, certain natural tectonic conformations would confer special energetic and magnetic characteristics, adding a halo of magic.

Beyond the authenticity of the scientific events taking place in these facilities, the same presenter of Right Hemispheric Remote Viewing notes other shocking aspects, discovered in the design of an auditorium of the Vatican, with the appearance of a serpent’s head, which somehow makes him infer that the name of Lucifer may not be so coincidental. 

Turning now to the official version of the Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope (VATT) page, managed by the Vatican Observatory Foundation, there it reports on another nearly 500-year-old observatory. 

“The Vatican Observatory is one of the oldest active astronomical observatories in the world, with its roots going back to 1582 and the Gregorian reform of the calendar,” it writes, adding, “Headquartered at the papal summer residence in Castel Gandolfo, outside Rome, this official work of the Vatican City State supports a dozen priests and brothers (Jesuits and diocesan) from four continents who study the universe utilizing modern scientific methods.”

It also reports on other collaborators and scientists who apply themselves to the study of various topics, which does not mean that the concerns and unknowns that occupy many observers do not persist.
