HI All,
I was just looking at skymap and came accross an object that I am not familiar with.

If you go to sky-map.org and put in the co ordinates 17h36m02.66s, +89°41′35.3″ you will see it.

This link should take you to a snapshot of it...

sky-map link

If anyone can tell me what this is I would be grateful.

what do u mean u dont see anything? its right in the middle if the picture...anyway...i'm unfamiliar with this as well, perhaps something on the camera that took the shot? If not something on the camera then i really dont know...interesting to say the least

Well it's the Cosmic Five of the Arcturians, of course.


Seriously, I have no idea but it almost looks like a thread on the lens...

someone letting us know at this rate we have 5 years in an advanced orangish-goldenish thread stuck on the glass? or they got the news on the 5 arrests threads(ALREADY!)?

It does look like a thread - surely it isn't

When I first clicked the link I didnt see whatever is there now. Perhaps the original link was incorrect or something.

Or either its because I needed glasses. Regardless of whatever the case is, I do see it now.

While not an expert at this at all, my guess is that it is artifact of some variety.

who do you think has an answer to what this is?

it more like a 5 than a snake.

whatever it is, it has it's own ATS thread now.

I am unfamiliar with the exact technologies used to take these images, but wouldn;t you all think a thread on the lens is highly unlikely?

I would also think an artifact would be unlikely, but then again, i am certainly no expert.

Is there any space phenomena which has created this sort of image before?

To me it looks like there is something, or a string of somethings, there.

It's a hair on the scanned image.
The image comes from a plate which was made by the Palomar Observatory on May 12, 1999 using a red filter.
Here's what it looks like on the original scan which you can get here:

Phage.....

If it's a hair, how did it get out in space?

Kind regards
Maybe...maybe not

Phage.....

Well.....

Perhaps we should take a closer look with the Penetrating Photographic Process.

There is almost no limit to the detail that can be achieved.

Kind regards
Maybe...maybe not

They still use (glass) plates?" That "technology" is 150 years old. Surely, they use CC devices directly into computers. Actually, it doesn't look like a "hair." More like carpet fuzz. Maybe a Morgellon's fibre!!!???????

Why would they even release a flawed image? That would be my most curious question.

Something else, the hair seems to be very much in focus along with the star field. This just gets "curiouser and curiouser" as Alice remarked on a slow ATS day.

Ah come-on, you guys have all seen skywriting before? Space writing had to come sometime!

As I said, this plate was made in 1999 as part of Palomar Observatory Sky Survey II.
www.astro.caltech.edu...
A major advantage of using photograpic plates rather than CCD's is the field of view. The plates used for the survey are 14 inches square. You'd have a hard time getting that kind of resolution from a CCD. Another advantage is the ability to select an emulsion with sensitivity to specific wavelengths.

Yes, since it is a scanned image of a photographic plate, everything is in focus.

This photo of your space snake is most likely a wormhole used as transportation from star system to star system. Much energy is needed for the wormhole and part of the energy is given off as light.

It could possibly have another meaning, and that meaning is "Five". Five somethings.
