So this is my first post around here and I wanted to share a strange "object" I found whilst using Google Sky.
This "object" is completely symmetrical, appears to have a central body, sphere head and wings joined at the rear.
Below are images of this "object"...
Using Photoshop I added a simple "Plastic Wrap" filter and also adjusted the lights and darks using the "Curves" feature:
What do you make of this?
The coordinates in Google Sky are:
Something else I noticed when modifying the lights and darks around this "object" is another completely symmetrical "object".
The following image shows where the obvious "object" is and I have circled where I see something more once the contrast has been adjusted:
You can see a slight highlight (depending on the brightness of your monitor in the picture below:
And once the contrast has been adjusted the following "object" appears:
These to me are extremely strange (especially the first one) and through many hours spent using Google Sky they are the only symmetrical objects (which actually look like space ships) I have found!
I would love to hear you opinions on this...

We'd like to thank our partners for the work and data they've contributed to this endeavor. It wouldn't have been possible without them.
Sloan Digital Sky Survey
Visit at: www.sdss.org...
Funding for the SDSS and SDSS-II has been provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the Participating Institutions, the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Energy, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the Japanese Monbukagakusho, the Max Planck Society, and the Higher Education Funding Council for England. The Participating Institutions are listed at the SDSS web site.
Digital Sky Survey Consortium

The Digitized Sky Survey (DSS) was produced at the Space Telescope Science Institute under U.S . Government grant NAG W-2166. The images of these surveys are based on photographic data obtained using the Oschin Schmidt Telescope on Palomar Mountain and the UK Schmidt Telescope. The plates were processed into the present digital form with the permission of these institutions.
The Second Palomar Observatory Sky Survey (POSS-II) was made by the California Institute of Technology with funds from the National Science Foundation, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the National Geographic Society, the Sloan Foundation, the Samuel Oschin Foundation, and the Eastman Kodak Corporation. The Oschin Schmidt Telescope is operated by the California Institute of Technology and Palomar Observatory.
The UK Schmidt Telescope was operated by the Royal Observatory Edinburgh, with funding from the UK Science and Engineering Research Council (later the UK Particle Physics and Astronomy Research Council, which is now part of the Science and Technology Facilities Council), until 1988 June, and thereafter by the Anglo-Australian Observatory. The blue plates of the southern Sky Atlas and its Equatorial Extension (together known as the SERC-J), as well as the Equatorial Red (ER), and the Second Epoch [red] Survey (SES) were all taken with the UK Schmidt.

I have come across many of those squared out areas but am not convinced on whether it's a glitch when combining the images together or if their purpose is to hide something?!...Only NASA could let us know for sure but we all know that "real" information of that kind is not going to be provided
