Not Antarctica Again! Groan…
For those readers who have not automatically skipped this post after reading the title, I had some time to spend on Google Earth Pro recently, and back to my area of interest, at the big black reflective rectangle 22 x 7km, photographed in 1999. And the strange 300 x 150mm objects seen 2006 – 2007.
This time I went back a few years to 2002, and this line of objects caught my eye.
The black rectangle does not appear in these 2002 photos.
The co-ordinates are bottom right, so you can check this out for yourself. What do those black shapes look like to you? Unfortunately zooming in closer does not increase the clarity.
Now, do you want to know how I found this second row of objects? This is where it gets even more interesting.
There appears to be a track or mark in the snow leading away from the big black rectangle, leading to the south east at heading 112º. The track is 7km wide, the same as the black object. I followed it on Google Earth, until it disappeared after 132km. At that point on Google Earth I scanned the years 1984-2016. And zoomed in and out.
And guess what! That point is exactly where the row of 21 objects which are 1km apart, starts (or ends). WTF?!
And just to complete this post, there is a site on YouTube which I have been watching with interest, called “Bruce Sees All”. “Bruce” is an amateur astronomer with a decent telescope which he has been pointing at the moon, and making videos. I have taken some screen shots, which I post here. Hopefully this will stimulate some of you to go to the YT site and check it out for yourself.
I will get back to gear making tomorrow, hopefully.
