Well, this is really weird.
It seems that the Cassini probe has photographed a noticeable glow emanating from Titan at night.
This article is about thunderstorms on Saturn, but, near the end, it mentions the glow and gives a quick summary of observations:
The glow is explained as a natural reaction involving Titan's atmospheric gases... but I'm sure conspiracists might be inclined to see this as
evidence of ET activity on the giant moon (cities, power output, etc.). To be honest, there's a part of me that wonders if the natural gas
explanation was just the first thing NASA thought of... a theory that wasn't allowed to have competition, that is. After all... if this was just an
atmospheric effect, would it always be concentrated in one exact area?
On the other hand, creatures that had evolved on Titan would probably not use 'lighting' because they would be adapted, from birth, to dark
conditions. There would be no reason for them to light city streets because they would be biologically suited for the dark (aliens that had recently
colonized the place, however...).
I am not claiming that this glow is proof of ETs on Titan. I imagine that the explanation offered is the correct one... and so I am really not trying
to present a ET/UFO thread here. I just thought the ATS world might be surprised and fascinated by this discovery.
