That is pretty strange. Any ideas?

Some guy using a PS3 to browse the internet, who thinks Saturn has two moons, and who thinks "it's one of the NASA websites", switches to a different picture mid-video, and is online friends with MIAMABEAST305? Sounds legit to me.

Explanation (pops) from the woman who cleaned up the image(s):
Alex, you're correct that Photoshop was involved, though not perhaps for the reason you think. Cassini takes color pictures by snapping three sequential photos through red, green, and blue filters. In the time that separated the three frames, Dione moved, so if I did a simple color composite I would be able to make Titan look right, but not Dione; or Dione look right, but not Titan. So I aligned Dione, cut it out, and then aligned Titan, and then had to account for the missing bits of shadow where the bits of Dione had been in two of the three channels. I explain this process in much more detail in this post: http://planetary.org/blog/article/00002427/

It is strange. I don't have to change contrast or brightness to see a bad photo shop.

cehlen: They took out the sun in the background.

The Sun is in the background on the dark side of the objects?

So...The Sun is there?

That's exactly the explanation I would put out there if I was going to try to cover my ass.

Go ahead and swallow the big lie, dude.

Kirk's_Toupee: well whatever it is, its blacking something that has red and green at the upper right hand side of the "blotout"

As noted in an above post, space craft shoot in monochrome, through Red, Green, and Blue filters, and then the images are compiled, and stacked into one image to produce much truer colors than you can get out of a standard CCD which has sets of 4 pixels each with their own mini color filter in Red, Green and Blue.

The blue image was likely taken last, so therefore the least movement occurred during the blue shot.


Anyway,
Man, conspiracy theorists really love to just grasp at those straws to try and prove a conspiracy.

That's a cool blog. I dig that shiat. Figure if 5% of the reports aren't fabricated bullshiat, that's pretty damned interesting.
 
2010-10-07 04:15:12 PM  
Our galaxy contains billions of stars, our galaxy is one of billions in the universe. There are multiple trillions of stars in the universe, meaning an almost incomprehensible number of planets out there. The odds of there being no other intelligent life are ridiculously minuscule.

SO when I see compilations of NASA footage with weird object in them, I begin to believe in myriad possibilities.

Then I read the blog linked by Kirk's_Toupee, and I think "cool!"

But my excitement is short-lived because of things like the following mixed in with the UFO sighting stuff.

That's a pretty low quality shop job Emily did. I hope she gets in big trouble for such an obvious use of a brush. That could have been edited in a way to not leave such obvious brush marks by anyone with a dab of common sense and a few minutes.

SATURN's NORTH POLE:

www.dennishollingsworth.us


Nobody has a CLUE what this is. It is rotating at the speed of the planet, not at the speed of the cloud cover. It's the largest geometrical object we've EVER seen. And we have no idea what it is. Oh, and Saturn's SOUTH pole? Is a stationary hurricane thousands of mile across.

We don't need to make stuff up. We can't even understand what we've already found.

Here's a wild guess, maybe the picture was meant to be viewed as presented as a "hey cool, look at this photo" kind of deal. Maybe she doesn't give a fark what some dork in his basement can uncover by screwing with the image in photoshop.

If I was her boss, I'd tell her to start leaving semi-obvious little fragments on purpose just to fark with the conspiracy tards.

AdolfOliverPanties: The Sun is in the background on the dark side of the objects?

They photoshopped the sun out, so of course it's dark now...

More seriously: Everyone should know by now the images NASA releases are processed, because they are taken for scientific and not aesthetic purposes. To make them pretty for the public, tweaking is required.

If you're that butthurt over it wait for the archived versions of the raw images to come out. (Though to be honest I'm not sure why they take so long...)


tinyarena: But, I'm a little bit sad too. One less Grand Mystery.

I feel somewhat sorry for people who feel that actually knowing/understanding something makes it any less interesting or beautiful. I also tend to feel exactly the opposite, so that's probably why.

It's sad. Science is pretty cool on it's own, but then you get folks just plain making shiat up because they can't keep up with the (usually slow, methodical) scientific advances that come after the "oh wow" instances. Oh well.
