Sweet Jesus, you're really grasping at straws here

Are you honestly holding this up as evidence, or did you just feel like making a post?

It is interesting, but perhaps not definitive. Anyway, I'm giving you a star for your avatar...the more we see it, the better this site becomes.

Finally...an Action Avatar that makes me smile instead of groan!

I agree this is a horrible photo to pawn off as a crashed disc? That could be anything... And unless you can come up with a picture of it thats more clear, we will never know.

Does appear to have a metallic reflection.

The photo is fair too grainy to give any real indication as to what it is.

It could be a crashed disc or it could just be shadow casting from a crater or rock formation.

I suspect it's not a crashed disc though to be honest.

Okay, FYI people, I did not take the photo myself, I believe that was NASA. The image was zoomed in on at 200%.
Obviously, I am not claiming this is a crashed disk, I am asking the question, "could this be a crashed disk?" Thus the question mark in the post. It appears to be the classic domed UFO shape.
I find it very interesting, if you don't, move on.

Fair play to you, it is a classic ufo shape and does seem to have a metallic gleam to it.

but it could be anything, the photos not the greatest quality.

good find though

I personally think that this "find" whatever it is contributes ALOT more to this forum than all of your negative remarks to this mans efforts, at least he is contributing something while all you do is insult and discourage, Good on ya super70 keep looking for good evidence although this may be tough to figure out, but keep on posting!

thats one way to look at it. Another way would be that the more garbage that is posted here like this photo, the harder it is to find anything that might be of actual interest amidst the noise. But thats the UFO world in a nutshell, isn't it?

I want to star you a million times. It's not garbage. It's probably not a flying disc either.
I think these things are good. This is how I learn about what's real and what's not. You brought up a question for debate, a picture and a question relating to a huge subject. Whoever thinks this is a waste of time is crazy wasting their time to reply!!!!!
IMHO not a flying disc but well worth the convo.

I think that negative remarks and discouraging statements are what causes the noise, when you come across a post is it not easier to view it, form an opinion and move on if its not up to par with your idea of a good contribution rather than wasting your time and energy?

I mean if you were unsure about something you discovered wouldn't you want to show others and get their help in finding out what it really is, rather than burning the person for posting something they felt was a legitimate item worth discussing?

and anything of interest is a matter of opinion. If its not interesting to you move on and dont waste the peoples time who do find it interesting.

The arts and sciences are dependent on discernment and judgement. Without discrimination, in the sense of evaluating evidence, perceptions, theories, etc., all you are left with is dilettante BS. If UFOlogy is a collective endeavor, then it is in the interests of that collective endeavor to keep the quality of investigation honest and competent. In the age of the internets, the number of people who, without any knowledge or training whatsoever, consider themselves "researchers", is astounding. Without even a modicum of professional ability in image processing, knowledge of planetary imaging, geology or optics, everyone and their mother thinks they are qualified to sift through satellite imagery, looking for rocks that happen to resemble Ronald McDonald. If you don't see a problem with this, that it is creating noise that confuses the issue and makes it more difficult for qualified researchers and interested parties to communicate and see just what the actual evidence is, then I would suggest that you are supporting disinformation and confusion, not clarity.

I dont think super70 was being dishonest he was simply pointing out something that he wanted looked at and if that makes him incompetent than I suppose the rest of ATS is incompetent also, because that is simply how this forum works we post items of interest and put it up for discussion and lets face it I doubt there are more than a handful of users on this forum that have any credentials in any of the areas you mentioned. To sum it all up this is not a professional ufology or astronomical site and if thats what you want then perhaps go look for one elsewhere, if im not mistaken this is a place where amateur and professional alike can come to post their findings and open it up for intelligent discussion!
