That is the enormous and enormously famous star Antares.
And that is also the highest resolution photo of the surface of a star other than our own Sun. Yes, photo, not CGI.
The yurroboffins did it with a fabulous array of scopes which together equal massive light gathering capabilities.
What a glorious time we live in!
2012 Ulster Rally – Camillus Bradley & Crawford Henderson – Stage 12 Tardree 2
2016 Circuit of Ireland Rally – Camillus Bradley & Crawford Henderson – Stage 12 Hamiltons Folly 2
So, as it turns out … my dear friend Cathy was all excited about seeing her cousins from Ireland on their first visit. She came over with pics a plenty in pad and there was a GE map of their home back in Eire and my keen eye for anomalies noted that it was labeled C. Bradley Motorsport. I said… wait… what? Cathy is a Bradley but cars are not her thing.
And there were photos of them all taken as you do for such a grand thing and she says oh yes that’s Camillus, he’s a great fun guy and is a rallye driver and has a car business.
This leaves Ig gob-smacked. I love rallye but I am not right so I had to see… he’s a Ford guy! Been a driver for decades! And has custom rallye car parts in his company’s name and will make you a whole car from scratch… a real body-in-white. Good gracious! That was so nice, so cool.
Small world, innit?
With Zoë Celesta West.
Studio WAF at The CopyCat Building added a cover video.
I am proud this woman is a friend. She does incredible work with some amazing photographers. These are just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak.
See her Model Mayhem page for all the details and rates and more.
And ask her about buying photos to help her Dad, my dear friend John Anthony West fight his cancer.
Check this out too… it shows clearly what a remarkable woman she is.
EP. 036 – Go West w/ Zoë Celesta West
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.
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:
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…
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?
same year as me.

Cryptids and Monsters: The 50-foot Congo snake
Giant Snake Congo 1959
I don’t know about you, but I have doted over the 50-foot snake of the Congo ever since I first clapped eyes on the famous photo featured here. Whoa, that was a long time ago!
I like this video… The host has a great theory as to what kind of a snake this pup is – namely the Titanoboa of 58 to 60 million years ago – and I find it an excellent theory because the suspect is a snake that fits the evidence. Plus, it is a fact that there is absolutely no natural reason on the face of this Earth why our guest could not be that critter.

This is beautiful.

“I just couldn’t believe how perfectly dome shaped it was. After about 10 minutes it started to flatten and looked like low lying cloud along the fields but over quite a big area, it was huge”
Met Office and BBC Weather Centre Forecaster John West shares with us his thoughts on what could be causing this effect.
“This is a very unusual phenomenon, but the most likely explanation is that the “fog dome” has been caused by a source of heat close to the ground, possibly an agricultural building or a relatively warm pool of water. As the fog has formed in the valley this heat source has forced the fog to lift away from the ground into a dome as warmer air rises; like a hot air balloon.”
The photographer’s website, cmoon view is well worth checking out.
Much splendor awaiteth thee there.
This image became a car club logo.
My car club’s logo, truth be told. I dig it greatly.
This particular car was oft seen traveling at this jaunty yaw attitude. Looks like bliss to me!
This model carved out an entirely new niche of motorized conveyances. Made ’em what they are today.
In any event, it is definitely Big Fun.
