Strange shining object near Comet 67P Churyumov Gerasimenko

On September 10, 2014, the European Space Agency released an image of Comet 67P taken by the Rosetta space probe, which currently is orbiting and mapping the comet.

The image shows a strange shining circular object that seems to float on the surface of the comet.

Though there is no explanation for this shining object, it is assumed that the anomaly is just a camera glitch…

 

ESA’s Rosetta orbiter has now moved in so close to its comet quarry that the primordial body overwhelms the screen, and thus its snapping mapping mosaics to capture the complete scene of the bizarre world so it can find the most suitable spot for the momentous Philae landing – upcoming in mid-November.

  1. "A strange shining circular object that seems to float on the surface of the comet"??? That description is stranger than the object itself! What it seems to be is the shiny top of a cylinder with a hole in front from which a black wavy something is coming out (or it's going in, or just hanging and "blowing in the wind" like a rag, where there's no wind, I guess). If this other description sounds even crazier then I'm sorry. I don't see how anyone could improve it. The fact that the cylinder is perfectly vertical is surprising.

Yellowstone Cam: What Is This Mysterious Object?

Kat Martin has captured something weird flying above Yellowstone. I have seen this type of thing before, but never changing direction so fast as this did.


There are lots of lights which are just reflections. The one this video is about is the bright object which comes in from the upper right of screen. It does turns and then settles near three line where it flashes very bright and appears in different places. It then flies off to the left, then makes a hard right turn.

This was live on the Yellowstone cam at Old faithful on May 5, 2019. Kat slowed the video down because whatever this was moved very fast.

When Erica Hite was filming a thunderstorm on Sunday in her home in Boynton Beach, Florida she had her camera ready at just the right time to capture a weird bolt of lightning.


The National Weather Service in Miami identified the unusual weather phenomena.as 'positive lighting,' or a continuous current, which is up to ten times more powerful than a typical flash.

Hite told the Palm Beach Post: 'It was crazy. Very scary, very loud.' 'It was just at the right place at the right time. I could probably never in my life get something like that again.'

Down the Lunar Rabbit-hole

Plans are being made for colonization of the moon and it must be ready before 2029.


Countries like the US, Russia, China as well as large private companies like SpaceX and Blue Origin are engaged in a sort of race to the moon. And it is not just a race, but more a total plan, in which human colonies will be built on the moon.

NASA revealed a new name for its moon program:Artemis. She is a Greek goddess of the moon and twin sister of Apollo. NASA astronauts are going to land on the surface of the Moon by 2024, including the first woman and next man.


Last week, Jeff Bezos, the founder of the Blue Origin, unveiled alunar landerat a mysterious invite-only event in Washington D.C. and suggests his firm will hit VP Pence's 2024 deadline for putting humans back on on the moon by 2024.The plan could ultimately serve as a stepping stone for colonization of the moon and deeper space targets, Bezos suggested.
