Antarctic Sphinx

When scanning Antarctica with Google Earth Pro today, which I do from time to time, I came across this flattish circular shape on top of a mountain…

Screen Shot 2019-11-14 at 1.10.14 pm.png

Zooming in….

Screen Shot 2019-11-14 at 10.11.08 am.png

The Disk pin locates a tiny dot of interest…. 6 Nov 2012.  Moving the Timeline date does not change the image.

It is 10km diameter, and fairly flat and smooth.  The above photo was taken from 10.5km altitude.

You will note my marker labelled “Disk”.  It marks a black dot, which I zoomed into….

Screen Shot 2019-11-14 at 10.48.21 am.png

Well, that looked a bit odd…  quite circular, intense white and black areas.  31 meters diameter.   The co-ordinates are on the screen if you want to check this yourself.  Note the shadow to the west.  It indicates that the central round lump with the “face” is actually a substantial pillar, with straight sides.  There is nothing anything like it that I have seen, anywhere else in Antarctica.

So what is it?  Zooming in closer (in 2012) does not improve the clarity.  ?an odd heat vent causing local melting?

A bit of further checking reveals that the area is an 11352′ (3460m) volcano, which protrudes 2100m above the surrounding ice sheet.  Mount Takahe.  76.28S,  112.08W, in West Antarctica.  It is a large  “shield volcano” which last erupted in 5550BCE.  It erupted massively 17,700 years ago, and is thought to have accelerated the end of the last ice age.  The smooth flat area in photos 1 and 2  is the caldera of the volcano.

That is very interesting, but does not answer the question… what is the strange “sphinx” like protrusion in the 3rd  photo.

The above images were made in 2012.  I cannot find any other zoomable satellite images of this area, despite other areas of Antarctica being photographed at least annually, and in some areas, several times per year.

Also, satellite images of  most of the world’s volcanoes are available at http://www.volcanodiscovery.com , but Mt Takahe’s images are blacked out!

Please excuse my paranoia.   And the clickbait heading.

Screen Shot 2019-11-14 at 11.45.06 am.png

The flat top is the ice filled caldera.

Screen Shot 2019-11-14 at 11.57.54 am.png

Almost worth travelling to inland Antarctica, and climbing an 11,000′ volcano to find out.  Almost.

Oh, and by the way, there is a pyramid, or a mountain which looks distinctly pyramidal, in Antarctica…  Look it up.

PS.  2 days later.  Doing some more checking on Mt Tahake, I came across this YouTube video.  I was not the first to think that there is some strange stuff there.

 

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.

Screen Shot 2019-07-08 at 1.57.18 pm.png

This is Antarctica, Dec 31 2002.  The red, yellow and blue pins are 300 x 150m objects, seen 2002-7.  The big black rectangle is in the middle of the left hand cluster.   The area of today’s interest is the small red line to the left of the long red line.  The small red line, placed by me on the photo, is 20km long.   The next photo is zoomed in to the small red line…

Screen Shot 2019-07-08 at 1.57.43 pm.png

Still 2002, small red line. Those 21 black dots are 1km apart.  And there is another, to the right near the top of my red line.   Now to zoom in some more…

Screen Shot 2019-07-08 at 1.59.17 pm.png

Look at those shapes.  They are 300 x 300m each.  Similar but not identical to each other.  Exactly 1 km apart.

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.

Screen Shot 2019-07-06 at 10.03.51 am.png

No scale unfortunately, but that white donut shape must be many kilometers wide.  And by the shadow which it is casting, it is way above the surface.  Similar shapes nearby.

Screen Shot 2019-07-06 at 10.15.29 am.png

And look closely at all of the rectilinear shapes in this screenshot.  Square meteorites perhaps?

 

I will get back to gear making tomorrow, hopefully.

Google Earth Antarctica Photos

Google Earth used to update the Antarctica photos annually, on 31 Dec each year.  BUT NOT SINCE 2016.

WHY NOT?

What is going on down there?

Somebody is responding to my Antarctica Posts

Look at the blocking graphics today, over the area of my interest in Antarctica.  The blocking pattern has changed, but it still extends 1985 through all years to 2016.  The sea ice changes every year, but the blocking pattern, and the clouds, stay unchanged.

Some of the odd shapes in 2006 are visible again.

And the big black rectangle is visible again.

This is not cloud, not natural features.  It is deliberate blocking.  The co-ordinates are at the bottom of the screenshot if you want to check it for yourself.  Use the timeline in Google Earth Pro to check out 2006.

Why has the area of blocking changed?  No idea.  Maybe whoever is responsible is embarrassed to have been called out.

P.S.   appointment with the boiler inspector next Monday.

Antarctica Again, Again

Some of you might remember my posts about Antarctica from December 2018.  I believed, and still believe, that something has been going on down there that is being kept from us by “someone”.

Do you remember the odd 300mx200m rectangular shapes of which I took screen shots and posted?  And how most of those areas were later blanked out on Google Earth Pro?

Well today I looked at the area again on Google Earth Pro, and the entire region has now been thoroughly blanked out, including ALL of the previously visible rectangular shapes.

Screen Shot 2019-03-13 at 6.09.53 pm.png

The grey splodge in the middle of the above picture could be mistaken for cloud, but it is not cloud.  Look how it includes ALL of my markers which I placed on the rectangular shapes.   And it is present on every year from 1985 to 2015.   It is deliberately obscuring the area of interest.

Screen Shot 2019-03-13 at 6.09.03 pm.png

That is NOT cloud, or any other natural feature.  It has suddenly appeared.  So please excuse my paranoia, but I believe that the purpose of the blanking is to hide the objects which I showed in my posts about Antarctica last year.

The area includes the HUGE BLACK RECTANGLE which is no longer visible.

Just to refresh your memory, and hopefully to piss off those who are trying to conceal these images, I am reposting them today.

Firstly the huge black rectangle.  21kmx7km

Screen Shot 2018-12-21 at 10.47.58 am

Then a few of the scores or even hundreds of 300mx200m, and 300m x150m shapes which I had taken screen shots of, from approx 5km

Screen Shot 2018-11-02 DF-C

A colour enhanced view of one of the “objects”.

I do not know what these objects are, but they are NOT natural features, they are visible only 2005, 2006, 2007, and someone does not want people using Google Earth Pro to be able to see them.

I have 25-30 screen shots of different but similar objects.

To be sure, you would prefer to be looking at photos of my engines, but this “other stuff” category is compelling.

Antartica Again!

Large sections of Antarctica have been suddenly hidden from view on Google Earth Pro, using fake clouds and checkerplate patterns.

They ARE fake because 1. they appeared suddenly (just a day after I had posted photos of strange objects, with coordinates, and the “clouds” neatly covered the areas about which I had posted.   2. the “clouds” are present, despite turning off atmosphere in GEP.  3. the “clouds” are present in all dates of the timeline, extending back 20-30 years, and the cloud pattern is unchanging over those decades.

Well, the fake clouds are still there, obscuring the interesting area, so I spent some time looking at a nearby area beyond the clouded area.

Screen Shot 2018-12-21 at 10.41.11 am.png

The red and yellow placemarks are those which the “clouds” and the “checkerplate” neatly cover.  The blue placemarks are those placed by me today.  They are not obscured, yet.   Take a look at what they are showing in the following photos.

Screen Shot 2018-12-21 at 10.40.38 am.png

Zooming in a bit, still 665km above the surface, showing the position of the blue placemarks.  The checkerplate line zigzags across the screen and everything to the left is deliberately (IMO) obscured.    Scale is bottom left, and compass top right.

Screen Shot 2018-12-21 at 10.37.38 am.png

Look at that straight line of odd objects.  I counted 28 of them, at about 1 km intervals.  From 14km above the surface.   Maginot Line?

Screen Shot 2018-12-21 at 10.36.45 am.png

Zooming in closer.  Same again!  300m long, 200m wide, black centre, grey objects surrounding.   Still 2006.  They appeared in 2004 and disappear 2008.  2006 is the clearest year.   From 5km above surface.

Screen Shot 2018-12-21 at 10.33.47 am.png

And another.   Dozens of them in this area.  These are NOT natural features.

And the huge black rectangular object which is still showing in Google Maps…

Screen Shot 2018-12-21 at 10.47.58 am.png

 A Google Maps image said to be taken in 2018.

Open your eyes people.  There is stuff going on, and we are not being told.

Antarctica Again. Bear with me. This is so weird.

OK, I will get back to the metal working soon.  I promise.

But this is so odd that I have to record it.

Reader Richard  thought that I would be interested in this Antarctic site, which was recorded on YouTube a few years ago.  The original YouTuber, thirdphaseofthemoon,    was lampooned in the comments on his post,  having called the site a “mega alien city” but I believe that this site could be significant for a different reason.

Go to 75ºS 0ºE (not exact but close enough.  The exact coords are in the screenshots which follow.)

And the following screen shots go back in time.  Just bear with me.

 

Screen Shot 2018-12-14 at 11.06.29 pm.png

Note the fake cloud cover which appeared a few days ago.

 

The area of interest today is at the centre of the screen, and is marked 75ºS0ºE.  Note that it is in the middle of the shapes which I posted yesterday.

Zooming into this spot using the most recent Google Earth photos shows this..

Screen Shot 2018-12-14 at 10.54.06 pm.png

Now you have to admit, that is unusual!  A flat, snow covered plain, with a bit of a hill, and a straight row of somethings, at regular intervals, about 2km long.  And a hole of some sort to the NE.   Stay with me!!

Screen Shot 2018-12-14 at 10.56.13 pm.png

These images are from 2016.  Close up, each “something” appears to be a hole.  The V shaped patterns to the SW I believe to be snow patterns, formed by the prevailing wind.  Note the reddish discolouration.   (Please check this out in Google Earth yourself!)

Screen Shot 2018-12-14 at 10.54.55 pm.png

And this is the big hole/cave mouth/whatever to the NE.   All a bit puzzling.   So let’s go back in time.   Google Earth does not make this exercise easy, because images disappear, and you have to zoom out, then in, but it can be done with persistence.

Screen Shot 2018-12-14 at 5.07.38 pm.png

Well, look at that.  2013.  The same spot.  An airstrip, some well travelled tracks,  excavations in the region of the big hole/cave mouth, and if you zoom in, you can see some machines.  Note the red discolouration again.  I have no idea what that colour is caused by.

Now we go back through some years….

 

Screen Shot 2018-12-14 at 5.12.12 pm.png

2012.  Before the excavations.  Look at the shape of the mound under the snow.

 

Screen Shot 2018-12-14 at 5.09.20 pm.png

Closer, 2012

 

Screen Shot 2018-12-14 at 5.12.31 pm.png

2011.  Note the shape before the excavations.  What does it remind you of?  Possibly a V shape or a chevron?  Does it remind you of some of the UFO’s which have been video’d in YouTube lately?    Hang in there, it gets better!  The chevron appears first in the satellite pictures of the area in 2001.

The oldest Google Earth image which I could obtain of the area was from 1984.  It is slighly north of the 75ºS 0ºE area of the later chevron and the excavations.  What do you see?   I see lots of coloured objects, with the same shapes, and differing orientations.  I do not believe that these are natural features or swamp gas.

Screen Shot 2018-12-14 at 5.17.16 pm.png

1984, close to where the chevron shaped mound later appears.

 

And close up

Screen Shot 2018-12-14 at 11.39.02 pm.png

These “objects” are about 60 x 150 meters big.  Pinks, yellow, green.   And they are located around the region of the chevron shape, and nowhere else that I can find!  What are they?

So, what have they found, and are excavating in 2013?  Dare I say it?  Well it looks like a UFO shape to me.  The 2013 regular row of holes and the big hole, I suspect are human efforts to investigate whatever is buried, without obviously displaying it to observers like us.

And I have no idea what the 1984 coloured objects are.

 

 

Why the SECRECY about ANTARCTICA?

Google Earth has suddenly obscured the area in Wilkes Land Antarctica with “cloud” cover.  Turning off “atmosphere” in the Google Earth settings does not remove the “cloud” cover.  Scanning back and forth over the years 1954 – 2016 does not remove it either.  It remains unchanged over the years 1954-2016.

The cloud cover has a checkerplate edge.  It does not have a realistic appearance.

Also, it conveniently and almost exactly covers the placemarks on the map of Antarctica which I posted a day or two ago, which show the location of the odd rectangular shapes.

But, today, I have scanned other areas of Antarctica and found a lot more of the rectangular shapes in a non obscured area.   See the screenshot below.

Screen Shot 2018-12-13 at 10.48.02 am.png

The odd shapes appear only in the years 2003 to 2006, so if you want to check this yourself, use the timeline.

In the picture above, the unobscured area is at the 12 o’clock position.  It is south of the South Atlantic ocean if you are looking for it.   The co-ordinates are in the screen shots which follow.    The huge black rectangle and surrounding shapes are in the area which is now hidden by the “cloud” and checkerplate. (at the 4 o’clock position in the picture above).

I am certain that these shapes are not natural features for the following reasons…  1. they appear only in the years 2003-7; 2. they do not have a similar appearance to other natural features such as non snow covered mountains;  3.they do not appear in any other snow covered areas that I have searched such as Greenland, Novaya Zemlya, Alaska; 4. they have remarkable consistency of size and similarity to each other of shape;  and the fact that someone appears to have attempted to stop other Google Earth users from seeing them.  So take a look before the next cluster is covered with “cloud” or checkerplate.

For the public record I have taken screenshots of 30-40 of the shapes, and I am posting some of these below.   The coordinates of each one is at the bottom of the screen in each case.  The are mostly taken from a height of about 4000 meters.

The first 4 shots are of the same location, over 4 years.

 

Screen Shot 2018-12-13 at 10.42.44 am

2003 nothing to see

 

Screen Shot 2018-12-13 at 10.42.04 am

2004  Hello! WTF is that?

 

Screen Shot 2018-12-13 at 10.39.51 am

2006  A bit clearer

 

Screen Shot 2018-12-13 at 10.41.02 am

2007 gone.  Never to be seen again.

Now some more, but only in 2006, which was the clearest year.

 

Screen Shot 2018-12-13 at 10.30.25 am.png

They are all close to north-south orientation.  Note the projections from the central black area and the barely visible grey shapes in the white rectangular surrounding area.  The white area usually measures 300m x 150m or 200m.

This group are natural features, from the same altitude and of a similar size.

 

Screen Shot 2018-12-13 at 8.55.41 am.png

Some of the rectangles are in close clusters, but most are are separated by many kilometers.

 

Screen Shot 2018-12-13 at 8.50.50 am.png

And this group (from a higher altitude) forms a straight line.

 

Screen Shot 2018-12-13 at 8.14.48 am.png

Some are in more rugged terrain

 

Screen Shot 2018-12-13 at 8.10.32 am.png

Different sizes

Screen Shot 2018-12-13 at 7.50.51 am.png

Screen Shot 2018-12-13 at 7.48.20 am.png

There are hundreds of these over the surface of Antarctica 2003 – 2007.

Why did Admiral Byrd of the USN take an invasion fleet and 4700 soldiers to Antarctica in 1947, 2 years after the end of WW2?  Look up Operation Highjump.

Why did President Obama visit Antarctica just before his presidency finished?  (unconfirmed)

Why did Buzz Aldrin visit Antarctica just before his death?

Why did Prince Harry,  and Patriarch Kirill of the Eastern Orthodox church visit Antarctica?

Why did John Kerry (US Secretary of State) visit Antarctica on election day?

Why are we not being told what is going on down there?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Paranoia

I realise that most of you who look at this blog do so to watch the progress on my steam engines, and lately you have been getting a lot of weird stuff about Antarctica.

Well, this is another one about Antarctica.

Suddenly, the Google Earth images of the area of Antarctica which I have found very interesting, have been blotted out with a crude graphic which blots out the items of interest.

The crude graphic looks a bit like cloud cover from a distance, but it does not change over the years timeline and close up it is obviously not real cloud..  Look at the screenshots below, and notice the relation of the graphic to my placemarks, which were inserted by me before the blotting out graphic appeared.

 

Screen Shot 2018-12-12 at 8.42.19 am.png

The blotting out graphic is the two “checkerplate” strips and the area between and nearby.  See how it neatly includes my placemarks.

Screen Shot 2018-12-12 at 8.43.11 am.png

 

Screen Shot 2018-12-12 at 9.04.54 am.png

The “Atmosphere” setting in Google Earth is off.  But it persists in some areas.  And look how it neatly includes all of my placemarks. 

 

Come on guys!  This is beyond coincidence.  Someone does not appreciate my posts about the odd shapes in this region.

Either that, or I am really going a bit pararoid.

 

WTF!

I subscribe to a YouTube site named secureteam10.  It collects many odd videos and photos  mainly about UFO’s and other unexplained phenomena.  A lot is total rubbish, but his post for today caught my eye.

This is a screen shot from today’s secureteam10  post  of a Google Earth view which includes clouds.

Screen Shot 2018-12-11 at 8.18.16 am.png

Notice the straight line cloud (?) between Perth, WA, and Antarctica.

It might be a natural cloud formation, but it does look unusual.

Then I thought, “I reckon that the Antarctic end is somewhere near the area of Antartica where I located the huge reflective black rectangle, and the other scattered odd shapes which I had placemarked”

Well, guess what….

Screen Shot 2018-12-11 at 9.10.43 am.png

Do you see my yellow and red placemarks?

 

More Antarctic Weird – 2

Harking back to the Google Earth photos which I posted on Jan 6 2018.  “More Weird Stuff”.   The photo was from 1999 satellite imagery.  Why am I so obsessed with this?  I am not sure.  Please read on.

 

Antarctica 6 Jan 2018 #2

This 21x7km black rectangular shape/object in Antarctica.  With the white reflections? white-out?.  And the track(?) leading from the south -east.     I occasionally re-open Google Earth Pro to look at it, and wonder what it was.  I have scanned all over Antarctica, and have never seen anything else, remotely like this.

Google Earth Pro has a feature which allows the viewer to scan back and forth over the years to see how a site changes.  Guess what.  The above shape does not show up on the yearly images even 1999. 

Then in the 2006 imagery I noticed a tiny black dot on my screen, near to where the big black rectangle was previously.  The tiny black dot would not brush off my screen, so I zoomed in.  This is what appeared.

 

Screen Shot 2018-11-01 at 11.07.48 am

That black dot is sited in a white rectangle which measures 300m x 150m.  A pixellated natural feature I thought.  But scanning other areas of Antarctica does not show any pixellation anything like this.

 

Then I searched the vicinity.  And found dozens and dozens of similar objects.  Nearly all 300m long, and either 150 or 200m wide.  All with a central black area.  All with smaller grey shapes in the white areas.  Scattered around an area of 300 x 300 kilometers (~200 x 200 miles).  Some areas clearer than others, probably due to atmospheric conditions.  I started to count them, but stopped at 100.  Most of them were oriented close to North-South.

They only appear in the years 2004 to 2007, and they are stationary.  2006 is the clearest.

Then recently, I purchased a photo editor, and played around with settings on some of the screen shots which I had taken of the “objects”.

 

Screen Shot 2018-11-02 at 10_Fotor.png

Unedited Google Earth photo.  The coordinates are there if you want to check for yourself.  The white rectangle surrounding the black area is different from the surrounding snow-ice.

 

 

Screen Shot 2018-11-02 DF+C.png

Defogging turned up, with compensation

Screen Shot 2018-11-02 DF-C.png

Defogging turned up, without compensation.

 

These do NOT look like pixellated natural features.

There are too many, and too big to be man-made.

And they are scattered around the area of the 1999 image of the  26km x 7km black rectangle.

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT THEY ARE?

p.s. The parallel lines which I puzzled about previously are probably artifacts arising from the Landsat photography.  Thanks to reader Brendan for the technical article which lists various anomalies in pictures which are stitched together from multiple passes of the satellite.   Still no explanation for the 300m x 150m rectangles shown in this post.

 

Antarctic Weird.

Some of you might remember the Google Earth photos which I posted on Jan 6 2018.  “More Weird Stuff”.   The photo was from 1999 imagery.

Antarctica 6 Jan 2018 #2

This 21x7km black rectangular shape/object in Antarctica.  With the white reflections? white-out?.  And the track(?) leading from the south -east.   The satellite image was taken in 1999.  And I occasionally re-open Google Earth Pro to look at it, and wonder what it was.

Well guess what.  It has disappeared off Google Earth.   Nowhere to be seen.  Replaced with featureless white.

Suspicions aroused, I turned on the feature of Google Earth which allows the viewer to scan back and forth over the years.   I had place-marked the spot so I knew that I was in the correct place.  The “staircase” away to the north is still there.

While scanning the “spot” from December 2006, I noticed some odd lines.  Odd in that they were exactly parallel, exactly 1 km apart (you can measure things in Google Earth), and varying lengths, covering 1000’s of square kilometers.  then I noticed a little black dot on the computer screen.  It would not brush off.  Zooming in, it seemed to have a geometric shape, not at all like a natural feature, even pixellated.

Screen Shot 2018-11-01 at 11.02.40 am.png

I zoomed in and out.  If you look carefully (or better still, check this out on Google Earth yourself), you will see a white rectangular shape about 300m x 150m, irregular outline but quite angular and geometric, a black central shape, and a number of smaller grey shapes.  It is aligned almost exactly north-south.  It is bigger than an aircraft carrier.   Buildings?   Artifact?  Natural feature pixellated?

Buildings?   Well it is there, but whited out in the images Dec 2004 and 2005 but not after Dec 2006.

Artifact?  I thought maybe.  Then I looked around the vicinity.

Screen Shot 2018-11-01 at 11.27.23 am.png

Every one of those placemarks pinned by me, represents a similar but not identical object.  Some are clearer than the first one which I saw, particularly in the group under the “Leopold and Astrid Coast” label.  There are at least as many again, less clear, which I did not mark.

If you zoom into the above photo you will get the Google Earth co-ordinates to check this out for yourself.   Make sure that you bring up the December 2006 images.  The centre of the above cluster is the location my original “More Weird Stuff” object, but it is nowhere to be seen after 1999.

I have scanned around the rest of Antarctica and I cannot find anything else remotely like this.  Nor is there anything like this in other years/dates.

Screen Shot 2018-11-01 at 11.06.04 am.png

So, what do you think?  The images show 50-100 of these objects.  It appears to me that someone might have attempted to disguise the objects in the images by applying the thick parallel lines.

I have my own theory, but I will keep my ideas to myself.  For the moment…

More Wierd Stuff

Since my “Strange Lights over Geelong” experience I have been looking at all sorts of weird posts on YouTube.  UFO’s, crop circles, megalith structures, evidence of buildings on the moon and on Mars.  There is a mountain of information out there, and while a lot of it is lies and rubbish, some is harder to dismiss.   It is not inconceiveable that Governments have information which they are witholding from the general populace, about aliens, UFO’s, ancient civilisations and so on.  Indeed, there are YouTube interviews with ex astronauts about UFO’s on the moon, and ex government ministers and officials about UFO’s and aliens, and Rothwell.  It may well be that the current increased talkativeness is due to a recognition by governments that they can no longer keep a lid on the previously secret information, so they are gradually allowing people to talk.

One line of posts which I have followed is evidence that something is going on in Antarctica.

And one source of information is Google Earth.  One post related to a strange set of giant “steps”.  I checked on the post information by checking the coordinates in Google Earth.

Look at the middle of the photo.  That series of “steps” does look unusual.  You can check on this yourself by entering the coordinates on the photo into Google Earth.   The “staircase is about 2.5km long, with each step about 250 meters.

Anyway, to continue with my story, as I was zooming out from this point, I noticed a bright shape about 138km towards the south.

The object which caught my eye was the white rectangle above the word “Coast”.  This section of Antarctica is directly south of Western Australia.  The rectangle is about 380 km from the coast.

And this is what shows up on Google Earth as I zoomed in.

The image is from 1999.  The black rectangle is 21 x 7km…  Quite a size!   I am unsure what the bright white is.  Possibly sunlight reflecting off a shiny surface.  Or a rough attempt at concealing the rectangular area?    This is at latitude 70.2 S, longitude  87.2 E.

Also, there is a faint streak from the rectangle heading about 100km to the east.  It is also 7km wide.     The staircase area is also visible to the north.

So that is it.  I can find no reference to this structure, but if anyone knows anything about it, please enlighten me.   If you have any interest in this weird stuff, you might the posts on YouTube by SecureTeam10 worth watching.

I am heading back into the workshop tomorrow.  Installing a steam powered boiler water injector on the Fowler traction engine, and bit by bit, finishing the triple expansion engine.

I have installed the new AC Servo motor to replace the spindle motor on the Boxford 125TCL CNC lathe, my expert friend Stuart Tankard has wired it up and reconfigured Mach3.  I am delighted to report that it has vastly improved the CNC lathe.  Will post some pics in a day or two.
