Could you discribe what the "real" Saturn looks like? Is it really that different? I ask because Saturn has been observed through
telescopes since the early 1600's and is still viewed by amature astronomers today. I've seen photos taken by amatures. They might not be as high
res and detailed, but they still look like Saturn.
We have trouble seeing the largest objects on the moon with our backyard telescopes and even photos taken by amateurs cannot resolve the building at
the top of Copernicus.
Yes, Saturn still looks like Saturn through a telescope but you should know that it is a great deal further out in space than the moon.
That still in no way even begins to answer the question posed. Regardless of how far out Saturn is, the point is valid... even to the astronomers of
old, it still "looked like" Saturn, as we now know it. And that was before the days of color cameras, high-res telescopes, and things like Adobe
Photoshop, so we know the images the observers saw was not doctored.
Are you going to be so bold as to say that aliens also manipulated their telescopes, so they would not see the truth? C'mon... your answering
questions with questions is a cheap cop-out, because you know you have no proof to offer. You said Venus and Neptune hold HUMAN life. Venus is too hot
for HUMAN life. Other life, possibly, but not HUMAN. Same with neptune... EVEN if a human could withstand being so far away from the sun, and so
terribly cold, the sheer size of Neptune is such that a human would be crushed by its gravity.
The moon was not "placed" into orbit. In fact... the moon is still moving AWAY from the Earth. Saying it was placed there, implies a fixed position,
which is false, otherwise, it would not be moving away from us at all. Besides, what would the reason be, to put the moon here? If aliens are going to
mine it, they are going to mine it no matter where it is. The same thing with the rings of Saturn... number one, why would they be "making" the
rings of Saturn. Two, why would a species so advanced take the time to place each individual bit of ice and rock that comprises the rings in their
place? We're talking about over BILLIONS of tiny and large fragments... these must be some royally bored aliens.
Look, I'm not trying to be combative, but you can't make a claim telling people that a "real" image of Saturn would blow their minds, yet refuse
to offer an example, or even a description.
