If anyone has google sky PLEASE check this out and post your thought!

latitude: -13.5171
Longitude: 22.4035

I would post a pic but I'm not sure how to take one of google sky.
I did press print screen but I dont dont know where to go from there, so if someone could let me know, I'll grab it and post it on here.

But seriously! CHECK IT OUT!

If it is a UFO, its HUGE.
If its some type of far off galaxy... well... I dont know what type of galaxy looks like that...

Thoughts!?

Print screen - open Paint - paste - save as "jpeg" - upload to image hosting service like Photobucket or Imageshack - copy "img" url - paste "img" url in post field - post.

u2u me if you need any help!


BTW, GIMP rocks! And it's free. Almost as good as Photoshop. Better, 'cause it's free! And you can crop, among many, many other things.

You beat me to it goosdawg


I didn't know about GIMP though, I'll check that out. I'm stuck on Paint myself


I made my latest Avatar in paint. Very limiting...

Paint's a rusty bicycle with a flat tire compared to the Ferrari that is GIMP.

Awesome for a free program.

Guess I better check out google sky...

as far as a star system or galaxies go,
these are the only known shape forms of galaxies, thus far:

I can't get in from work, my company's policy won't allow Google Sky

I'll try to check it out tonight from the source...

In the meantime, do I have this correctly, that we're looking up in this image at the sky from the surface of the Earth?

if so, I'm confused, is the white thing the moon? what could the long green thing possibly be?

Also, instead of a galaxy (I'm assuming we're talking about the white object here) could it have been a GRB? I know that the odds of catching something like that are small, but would a GRB (gamma ray burst) look like this? Is there a timestamp on when the image was taken?

Sorry if all of this info is available at the Google Sky site, just hoping you could help describe it since I can't access it yet...

Thanks!

I think the image is taken from the hubble telescope?

I think the white thing next to it is a star, but the object in question is that weird green line.

It is very strange, and I haven't seen anything like it before.

dont forget those flags so we can get it some more attention!

Please give the coordinates in "Dec" and "RA". I can't read them from your screenshot. Thanks.

Thanks for the clarification Odessy, I'll jump in myself tonight when I get to my home computer and can access google sky.

I've actually never heard of Google Sky before this post. I knew about Google Earth, but I must have missed this one...

p.s. IAttackPeople, there are Long and Lat coordinates in the first post, I'm not at the site so I'm not sure of the Declination an Right Ascension factors. They must exist though, if this is shot facing up...

yeah I'm trying to find it too!

I bookmarked it in google sky but its not there anymore.
I'm going to try and go through the process of how I found it to see if I can get it again...
bare with me, this might take some time.

Just a thought but it could be that the star went nova and the green is the hydrogen shell that has been blown off????

Could be, right??

The location to type in is Dec -13* 31' 04.25" , RA 13h 29m 38.23s Very Interesting.

Try to find the location at sky-map.org instead (it has all the features of google sky, but it tracks more objects). Its also over 1 year old


sky-map.org...

Very strange indeed. If it were something flying, it would probably have to be enormous - so I would guess it is some sort of gas or glare.

I'm new here (on ATS) so bear with me....I did not have Google SKY until I saw this post and I've been looking around.

THis may have been asked before, but scanning over to Mars the is a VERY large square in the northern hemisphere. Zooming in it even looks like it could be a pyramid. I'm sure it is not anything built by intelligence, but it what is it? Something to do with the way the photo was taken or stitched together?

Thanks.

I've seen anomolies in Google Sky that look similar. They look like reflections or glare on the lens. I saw one that looked like a bright bluish-green plastic spiral booklet binder.

In fact, I just found something that I'll dub "The Great Orbiting Unfolded Red Dinner Napkin".


Dec: 17* 41' 54.20"
RA: 14h 00m 45.72s

(Careful. It zooms in pretty close!)

There are some very wierd artifacts all over Google Sky. Im willing to bet there is nothing strange about any of them, and that they arent actually there, but they are fun to find. The only really wierd part is that you have to zoom in very far to find some of them... hmmm
