The PTB are terrified the peeps will find out the truth

Since it appears the alien ships have 'disappeared' it shows they were nothing more than image artifacts.
I think it's a good idea to understand the tools you use before using them.
For example, Stereo...
The science data collected by the STEREO spacecraft are written to the on-board recorder, which is then read out and transmitted to the ground during daily telemetry tracks using the NASA Deep Space Network. These data are of much higher quality than the beacon data, but take several days to reach the STEREO Science Center website. Thus, the most recent images on the STEREO Science Center browse tool will always be beacon images. These temporary beacon images are replaced with the full-quality versions as they become available, generally about 2-3 days later.
Thanks for that, Chadwickus. That might explain the missing images. I just don't have enough time to check everything. If only I didn't have to go to work. That's what's so good about this site I guess. Collaboration is always positive.
2-3 days does sound suspiciously like enough time to edit the photographic images though... God I wish I trusted NASA. So here we are - the suspicious images are removed after a short period, then replaced with higher resolution images that could have been edited. Tell me I'm wrong if you all know better.edit on 29/1/11 by Pimander because: (no reason given)edit on 29/1/11 by Pimander because: (no reason given)

Here's the image I made, which was a relatively quick and dirty color composite of three views of Titan and Dione captured by Cassini

So its no surprise that NASA gets lazy and badly photo-shops pictures.
