Cmdr, concerning the e-mail from Mawson, it stated that he "moved the cam to investigate this strange light"? That cam wasn't wasn't moved until after a lot of people started visiting that site and asking amonst themselves online what could this light be. There are two possible reasons why the cam was moved:
Monitering of internet activity concerning this "light" at the south pole, Mawson and discussions about it.
Or, it was a regular and periodical thing to thing to do.
Now, Mawson's cam is still showing mostly the ground or foreground, while Casey's is now showing the horizon, but in what direction is it pointing?
Will this new view now show this object?
It is interesting that now they only have a feedback form and not an e-mail to contact them. Of course if my e-mail account was getting swamped (which it must have been at the time) I would probably take it down too, but isn't that a lot of work for a few "kooks"?
I believe the "moon" should be rising soon at Casey. Like I said, once there is proof that this is the "moon" or "venus" in real-time, or from previous data (those austral summer images are interesting, but I still don't think it is the moon because of that nagging action of coincidentally moving the webcam at the same time people were viewing the object at their site and sicussing it online.
Maybe they will come out and post an official message on their site or sites (whichever base has or had the object in view) and state why this is the "moon" or "venus" and when the times are for it's rising and setting year round or at certain times in the year, among the other useful scientific research they do?

The positions of the "objects" are where most amateur astrologists would not be able to collect data on their own - maybe not even some of your greater astrologists. The only astrologists that might be able to collect "true" data would be the governments because of the locations;all everyone else gets is information fed by "them" and the cams.
Conspiricy? Dunno. Moon - not; Venus, umm maybe; moving of the cameras, changing of the website - definately; accepting a strangers advice that everything is okay, there is no conspiricy - not.

I really don't think it's the moon, but I am really suspicious because of the coincidental behavior of the cams being moved, etc., but why wouldn't other people be able to see an object that appeared to be pretty good size in both locations? If they were objects versus planets or astroids, would other people be able to really see them? Something is weird with this whole thing; I am trying to talk my way through it to find the answer.
Do you really believe and accept that this is the moon?

There is always the possibility that the scientists down there are simply messing with you by moving the cam. I would, if I were there.
There is something not right here ..am I the only one to think this?? mindpower keep working on this ...although I think its the moon too, we are striking a nerve with something here..
