I have to admit, the past couple of weeks I've been following NASA's Dawn mission and its pictures of the asteroid Vesta, with some interest, and pouring over some pictures of the distant "worldlet" ever since I read a passing reference that NASA scientists were "stunned" when they saw the pictures of the asteroid.

At first, they didn't look all that significant to me. Take this one for example:

Well, ok, there are a few interesting features that are even downright curious, such as the indications of craters arranged more or less in lines, if one studies carefully for a few minutes. But one can find such formations almost anywhere, including our Moon.

Nothing terribly stunning there.

Then I saw this:


Now this one was a stunner! While I'm not going to jump on any bandwagons here, there are a number of "weirdnesses" about this picture, which one has to view in full size to really appreciate, but I'll use arrows to point a few of them out.

The first "weirdness" is the obviously "parallel" feature quite visible on the lower left:

Then there are "geometrical oddities" that one might almost qualify as "anomalies" as the following pictures illustrate (and again, I've inserted an arrow to show what I'm talking about):

Notice that to the right of the arrow, there is an oddly and apparently "rectilinear" feature that looks to be inside or on top of a crater. There is another such odd "geometricity":


Visible here is an almost triangular formation with, again, sharply defined lines and points, a feature that, at first glance, would seem to be difficult to explain by any natural geological or kinetic-collision process of formation. Time, further images, and careful enhancement of this "worldlet" will tell, but for now, I'm holding the door open. We may be looking at a rock with unusual features, or we may be looking, again, at indicators of some artificial things on that rock.

    WhatI still don’t know/get is why Vesta(?)

    The ancient extraterrestrial civilization is one of my all time favorites. Even though I read ‘Chariots of the Gods’ when it came out, I remained uninformed and defiant. It was Richard C. Hoagland who finally pulled the wool out from in front of my eyes and turned on a light.

    I first heard of Richard C. Hoagland when I heard him on ‘Coast to Coast AM.’ (I’d never associated Hoagland with The Face on Mars until after this.) So let me make mention of something here along this line. Richard C. Hoagland has been giving talks about Vesta and its evidence of extra-terrestrial intelligence and as I am unable to afford to travel to wherever to a convention about whatever to see Hoagland’s presentation, I anxiously awaited until he had his own featured episode of Coast to Coast AM, as Science Advisor no less, so I could hear his latest speculations about Vesta and the Dawn.

    The hour arrived a few days ago a week ago today? Yep. The Coast to Coast AM schedule explicitly said that Richard C. Hoagland would be on during the SECOND hour. So, as I needed my sleep and I am not usually up at 1:00 AM CST anyway, I set my alarm. I woke up to hear only open lines telephone calls from the usual C2C crackpots but no Richard C. Hoagland.

    So I emailed George Noory an inquiry but he never contacted me back; never sent me an explanation. I did sort of expect one as George Noory has responded to emails from me before, once even acknowledging that he is on the CIA payroll. (Or was that actually him or a CIA hacker? Occam’s Razor says it was Noory so that’s what we’re going with here.)


    So I am P-OHed at the whole C2C crew, especially George Noory because with a listener audience the size of theirs then they should have the mental acuity to get the broadcast schedule right. This is for George Noory:)D [Sticking out tongue.]

    The above also means that the first analysis of Vesta images that I have seen is this post here at Giza Death Star and that this analysis comes before there is even a mention of it on enterprisemission, where the link to the archives is still broken and NOT addressed by Hoagland.

    Now, after that long tangential introduction, here is what I have to say about Vesta:

    1. I have been using a picture of Vesta for my desktop image for several days now so I have been doing my homework. I have been specifically looking for evidence of anything unnatural or manufactured.

    2. I noticed those long deep trenches several days ago. They do compare with similar ones on Phobos, which are perpendicularly criss-crossed by others providing evidence of possible plating construction. In both cases, these appear to be trenches. On Iapetus there appears to be a huge pitched (almost) perfectly straight triple ridged mountain range encircling it that is reminiscently similar to these trenches but convex rather than concave.

    3. Iapetus also shows hexagonal patterns on its horizon and, especially, in “craters.” The same is true of many “craters” on Vesta. Perhaps this is evidence that Vesta was constructed or, at the very least, has had a lot of construction and modification done to it.

    4. I can’t see the triangle that you speak of, Dr. Farrell.

    So there’s my 2 x 2 = 4 cents worth.

    I look forward to more and deeper analyses of Vesta. It appears to me to provide us with a glimpse of an ancient extraterrestrial civilization; key emphasis here is on BOTH extraterrestrial AND civilization.

    A very important blog entry.

    More geometries that are clearly present here and on other moons.

    Also pretty interesting is the dark spot in the center of the picture about 3/4 of the way to the top. Zooming in on that it appears to be more of an opening or entryway than a crater. The albedo is quite a bit different from the surrounding area, and much different from craters nearby.

    I, too, am looking forward to many more interesting photos, which NASA is apparently NOT retouching this time around (although I have no proof of that).

    Definitely a “stay tuned” event.

    Alderon anybody the remains of a planet that has been deliberately blow up.stay tune.

    Now go back and compare these against hoaglands (Phobos)…

    HMMMM…patterns anyone!?
