Altair Now Continues with...
"Those Were The Days"
Radar showing targets are 50 miles at Angels 7.
I was involved in many publicity interviews with various movie stars...
Below is Raquel Welch and myself when I was in the Naval Air Force,
and beautiful Raquel was just beginning her career on Hollywood Palace.

Our Lost Photograph!
I once had a picture of Marilyn Monroe and myself together.
However, I loaned it out years ago and later forgot who I loaned it to.
What a pity! I would have placed it here along with the rest of them.
(Instead of our picture together, I am presenting just her... below.)

~ I made actual radio contact
with an Astronaut in outer space ~
This contact "was really" out of this world!
(See text at bottom of picture)
Susan J. Helms (Colonel, USAF) NASA Astronaut

I actually talked to Susan on
"Ham Radio" from my mountain cabin, while she was in outer space
aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery. (Sept. 1994) To say the least, it was a very important day for me.
I was only using 5 watts of power on my 2 Meter Ham Radio, connected to a car battery inside my home!
(I have written conformation of this contact - direct from the NASA Space Center, as proof.)
Discovery - And Earth
This is about what it looked like... as I made my radio contact with Discovery.
Think you could find Altair... down there on earth somewhere?
Below is the Post Card (QSL)
I sent to NASA
(To confirm my actual contact with the Discovery Space Shuttle.)
The QSL includes my Ham Radio Call-Sign (on front) and important contact data on back side.
I creatively designed
(QSL) card on the floor in my bedroom.
Two Great Minds Meet!
Altair Has Private Conversation - With World Famous Astronomer!
"A Fallen Hero"
(November 9, 1934 - December 20, 1996)
See text below picture.
Altair Dives To Sunken Ship!
Catalina Island's most famous Shipwreck called the "Valiant"!
Catalina's most famous shipwreck called the "Valiant" was a 444 ton steel motor yacht which was built in 1926. It was 163 feet
long and had a 26 foot beam. (It was one of the largest private yachts in the world at the time.) It had a gas generator that they
feel may have exploded. The ship caught fire and was towed out by the harbor patrol until the anchor dropped. For three days
it burned, and then it sank on December 30, 1930. There was a reported loss of $67,000 in jewels aboard, when the ship sank.
The wreck still lies perpendicular to shore, listing to port, stern is in sand at 80 feet, and the bow at 110 feet deep. Divers may
still enjoy this wreck, only when granted permission by the Harbor Master. Altair dove to this sunken wreck in 1960 with complete
SCUBA (Self Contained Breathing Apparatus) gear. He ventured around the entire wreck, finding a white bathtub still inside.
Most everything else of value had been removed. There are some pictures below which help you visualize his great adventure.

The three pictures below are not from
but are used to simply help you visualize his adventure.
Shall I pose for this? Oh Well..

A Little More About
Altair - In His Own Words:
As you may well realize by now, I go by my Spiritual Name: "Altair". I use this name on the web where I promote my business
which is called: Royal*Star Productions. I am a completely self taught webmaster and have learned to create unique graphics,
banners, animation's, awards, and websites for individuals and companies world wide. I have created graphics for Main
Stream Sites such as: qrz.com (Ham Radio), clicktron.com (LampLogic CallSign Lamps), worldwidetopsites.com , along with
pigeonauctions.com (Auction site), 2cqout.com (Search Engine Site), Karen Lyster's UFO Site (UFO's - The Beginning of a new world)
and the widely well known "CAUS.COM" (C.A.U.S. - Citizens Against UFO Secrecy) which has been invaluable to US Citizens.
Among other clients I have worked with, I've also created "free gift" animated graphic's for several celebrities, such as: Art Bell
(Radio - TV, UFO Related), Jeff Rense ("Sightings" - UFO - Radio, Web), Richard C. Hoagland (Enterprise Mission - UFO - TV, Radio, Web).
I know I must also mention and include of course," Shirley MacLaine" (Movie Actress and Metaphysician - TV, Movies and Web).
Below is an "Example" of what I made for her...
(Shirley's name above took approximately (73) separate graphics to make the animation complete.)I've been doing this kind of work for approximately fifteen years and now that I find myself retired,
I have the time to work on the web on a constant basis, and I really seem to love every minute of it
