There's something about Iapetus, the mysterious moon orbiting Saturn.
Notice the ring around it? 12 miles or about 60,000 feet high and 750 miles long. And it's straight as an arrow!
Compare both the images. Am I imagining things? Shades of George Lucas and his Star Wars saga!!




An entire spaceship world … trapped in orbit … around Saturn!

But, because of the deafening silence coming out of NASA on what it already knows but won’t release (let alone suspects!), about the glaring anomalies we’ve now identified about this “moon” … we are left with only one sad but inevitable conclusion:

NASA, again, has decided to “tough it out” … to officially say nothing -- like it has treated all its other discoveries of “extraterrestrial ruins” in the solar system … over the last 30 or so years ….

Can someone explain this anomaly? Mind boggling at first sight.

This is nothing.

Wait a few decades until we can see into deep space....then we shall find anomolies we cannot begin to imagine.

Weird, wonderfull, frightening and exciting events and objects in this Universe will be found that will cause humanity to truly question itself.
I hope i am still around.

Very strange looking indeed, but there are plenty of strange phenomena in space. I believe I heard or read somewhere that George Lucas designed the Death Star to look like that moon after seeing pictures of it.

For starters, NASA has taken a lot of newer pictures of the Moon since Cassini arrived in Saturn orbit. You should check them out.


Secondly, Hoagland is one of the best known hoaxers in astronomy circles.

yeah, thats a pretty cool looking moon. If I remember right, I think they (nasa) think it was caused by to large planetoid asteriods colliding head on...and that was the out-come.

Nasa's Cassini has taken so many amazing pictures...that thing was definiatly worth its billion dollar price tag.

enceladus is a cool looking moon as well.

Please take what Hoagland says with a pinch of salt...

Murcielago, great pic, and I can't help but read your posts with Stewies voice

It looks like Iapetus had a dust ring around it that was too close to stay in orbit, so it landed in a ring. Looks like Enceladus has been working out!
Id bet those blue lines are old rivers which carried blue blood!!!

Yes, Iapetus is one of the more interesting ones. surprised there has been this few posts here.


anyway, more direct link: www.enterprisemission.com...


seems Arthur C. Clarke "predicted" this anomoly.

"Hoagland is one of the best known hoaxers"

I find this a bit of an easy statement.
How about htese mad rings on this moon ?
"12-mile-high (~60,000 foot!) “wall” "

they are not easy to explain i think.
It is maybe to quick to call them alien, but it looks a little artificial do.

Maybe when you call someone a hoaxer you can add some real content to that statement.

Interesting comment about Hoagland! I have some suspicions about Hoagland but that's related to my believe that his not telling anywhere near what he knows. Feel free to post some material exposing him to be a hoaxer ( Anything from Phil's BA does not count as his clearly being paid to make up vapid lies) as that would certainly be news to me and i have been following his activities for the last few years...

As a earlier poster mentioned that 'ring' is actually a 'mountain range' ( for lack of a better description) that is on average 19 odd Km high and extends round the planet without deviation ( as i remember). It's the only body in the solar system with such which makes this moon extremely interesting whatever else you may want or not to want to believe or consider. I suggest you read the five piece series of article's as they raise interesting questions to say the least.

This doesn't make any sense. The moon is a spaceship, because it looks like something in a film?

I just drew a diagram of our solar system on a piece of paper, wow it's all a spaceship and the sun is the power source! NASA know the truth but are covering it up, like the science group working for the collcetive group of expanding the limits of science that they are.

This should be in Skunkworks.

For the record, I don't think there's anything extraterrestrial/supernatural/otherwise "spooky" about Iapetus, but since we're talking about elements from fiction finding a place in the real world...

In the book version of Arthur C. Clarke's "2001", the Discovery goes to Saturn, not Jupiter, and orbits Iapetus. Iapetus has (as Clarke knew at the time) one hemisphere that is brighter than the other. In the middle of this hemisphere, Clarke wrote, Dave Bowman sees a single black spot - the monolith made famous by the movie.

When Voyager II flew past Saturn in 1981 (13 years after "2001" was published), the probe sent back a picture of the moon's bright hemisphere with - you guessed it - a black spot in the middle of a field of white.

In an introduction to "2010", the sequel to "2001", Clarke wrote that Carl Sagan, a member of the Voyger Imaging Team, sent him a copy of the photo. On the photo Sagan wrote "Thinking of you..."

What I find most interesting (also in Hoagy's article) is the apparent polygonal, rather than smooth spherical shape. I noticed it in the pics before he even got to that part, having been involved with 3D graphics over the years.

He does jump to plenty of wild conclusions, as you might expect, but the moon is quite suspicious even without Hoagy's commentary.

How many of his articles have you read over the years and how many do you think had wild conclusions. While we are at it what's your definition of a wild conclusion?

Which is why so many more people should be talking about it and their lack of interest seems to be no less strange than Richards claims...

Wild conclusion you ask? How about beings escaping mars in their deathstar-type spaceship while they waited out a cataclysm, then populated earth later?

Iapetus is strange to be sure, but the explanation might be a bit simpler... or stranger. The problem is he tends to craft a story around his finds, instead of just presenting the evidence. People might actually listen to the guy more if he wasn't trying to fit his finds into his preconceived notion of events. Sure he may be right, but usually a simpler explanation wins out. Simple laws of probability.

The picture of Iapetus hasn't been messed with-- or not much (if at all). You can see apparently identical pictures at the Cassini site, complete with airlock-like crater and equatorial annulus. And yes, it does look like the Death Star, though obviously it isn't.

Maybe that's what an alien spacecraft would look like if it had been abandoned in orbit about Saturn for a few hundred or thousand years. It's not very likely, but who knows?

we have one right before our noses and while it does not have an equatorial ridge, it does have its share of anomalies

www1.jsc.nasa.gov...

and so on. what gives, all this speculating won't get us anywhere unless we get to land there without NASA's (or anyone else's) supervision.
