Woo Hoo ! Personally, this development is simply too fabulous for my feeble mind to contain and I do believe my cranium will explode in 3…2…1… -… -… -… oh wait, I’m okay now… but, I mean, whoa!
We are concerned here with the three objects in the image above. They are on the Moon, this is a hi-res Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter photo. It is zoomed in as far as it will go. Technically there are four, but the other is little and just out of frame at the top. Oh well.
Note: This photo, while not only nifty, but keen as well, is not what has caused the roiling pressure cooker in me ‘ead, though. No, we’ll get to that. This pic is so you know what of we speak. Click it to enlarge.
They are of interest beyond the fact that they do have a strikingly building-like appearance, but, as we are well aware, that don’t necessarily mean jack. Pareidolia can be immensely realistic. But these features do, to me, look like buildings. OK, cool. So… now what?
Well! So many memories and warm thoughts of the innocently naive and ever-so-powerful enthusiasm of the past (what happened to that?) came flooding back when I saw the latest work of long-time space image researcher and hey, man, Pioneer, even, Dr. Mark J Carlotto. He did so much awesome work using his mastery of analysis to great advantage when all these Moon and Mars anomalies were brand spankin’ new and floodin’ in to the delightfully astounded balls of our eyes.
Something I had no idea of is the apparent fact that artificial things, things we make like buildings and cars and the like create what are called anisotropies when they are rendered in two dimensions. At least they do here on Earth.
- noun form of anisotropic
physics (of an object or substance) having a physical property that has a different value when measured in different directions. A simple example is wood, which is stronger along the grain than across it
(of a property or phenomenon) varying in magnitude according to the direction of measurement.
EditToAdd [assessment] See Details Below
So this info could prove useful, you’re thinking and you are right because the spy boffins, the photographic ones, have created software for finding artificial objects wherever they may be. It finds the anisotropies in the given image and the filters out all the naturally occurring areas. Sort of like a lightbox effect in a way. Only the artificial things are highlighted in the resulting image.
This software is used by law enforcement, search and rescue and who knows what other corporate needs there are, (insurance fraud?), in addition to scientific research.
Mr Carlotto decided to try it on these two objects, which, you might agree just kind of ask for it. =) You can see the result for this image below, which compares the wares working on a typical Earth satellite image and the image shown above of our rectangular lovelies..
I think it speaks for itself.
That’s what we want… that right there… on the right.
If it looks like a duck…
Let us get our butts up to Mars AND the Moon!
ETA: UH OH !! RED FLAG
From friend of WATT, the well-grounded Kandinsky:
a reply to: jeep3r
Jeez, Mark J. Carlotto is a blast from the past and not a good one either! This guy used to have a page in a magazine I read in the mid-1990s. He wrote about Cydonia and ancient civilisations on Mars.
He taught me the valuable, embarrassing lesson that being a Dr. doesn’t inoculate against credulousness. I was showing friends and family his Mars imagery and all the impressive measurements. They’re laughing it off and I’m all, “Wait and see! He’s a real scientist! Look! A doctor! These are NASA images!” Of course, the Mars Observer disproved all of his ratios, claims and patterns.
Here he is doing the same thing.
Jeep3r, Carlotto and Brandenburg are not bad guys, but they will take you on a wild goose chase based on no more than their wild imaginations. Enjoy the ride and expect the end to be a teachable moment.
oh dear – I am thinking my brain needs a restart really badly!
More from wildespace…
Who is Mark Carlotto?
I just came across this post at the Unmanned Spaceflight forum (where the participants are very knowlegeable, or even involved in the actual space missions or working with the data) – www.unmannedspaceflight.com…
Based on the tiny craters that are actually on the surface of these objects, they conclude that those objects are very old, being there since around the time the crater formed. So, these indeed seem to be slabs of rock thrown up by the impact that created the crater. In the LROC image, will also see some boulders just lying there in clusters, as if someone brought them there. But again, I think they are the impact ejecta.
Oh dear oh me oh my.
Cool rock slabs, though, eh?
But — what about all that anisotropy stuff, then?
