With regards to the possible existance of ET civilizations out there within our galaxy or the universe as a whole, I've tended to be one of those
that sits on the fence waiting for some kind of reasonable evidence to either prove or disprove their existance.
Naturally logic and even common sense dictates that surely we can't be the only civilization to have developed and there has to be someone /
something out there besides just us.
Anyway, imagine my surprise as to what I think I'm seeing in of all places, a Hubble telescope image of the Orion nebula.
I was simply looking just a short time ago at such an image purely because it's so detailed, beautiful and awe inspiring, when I noticed something
that struck me as highly unusual. .. some kind of artifact that obviously was so out of place within that image. So, deciding to investigate further,
I enlarged the image and almost fell over in surprise ... because there as plain as day was what seemed to me an artificial structure, dark coloured,
elongated or cylindrical in shape and highlighted clearly against a continuous and unbroken backdrop of light coloured clouds.
Anyway, here's the source image
and here are the images.
Take a look for yourself and try to convince yourself that what you're looking at is nothing more than a glitch, pixellation or some other NORMAL
image artifact. I have searched all over the complete image for something similar to this but have found nothing ... this seems to be the ONLY example
of this type of artifact.
I, for one, don't believe for one moment that this is just a simple image glitch ...
Image1 ... Orion nebula
Image2... zoom in ... just barely make out the dark dot in the centre of the circle
Image3 ... zoom in ... central artifact more obvious and hint of elongation
Image4... zoom in ... artifact is clearly anomolous and definitely elongated
On the next enlargement, you can easily make out what appears to be a "glow" around the midsection of the artifact. This "glow" may actually be a
star thats partially obscured by the artifact ... notice that there are 2 other stars in the near vicinity which can be seen shining thru the cloud
If it is actually a star being obscured, it lends further credence to this artifact actually being physically there.
Image5... zoom in ... artifact stands out clearly from background
Image6... zoom in ... definitely NOT a glitch ... notice the "glow" of what may be a star behind the artifact and being partially obscurred.
