*****Fits Viewer Bug Report?*****
I'm not sure if anyone else is aware of this or not, but....
I just downloaded the 2 images you did, from the exact site you did, and opened them in fits viewer. Before I mention any findings, I will mention an odd bug with Fits viewer I noticed. I opened the behind image first. The dark Y shape on the sun is there, and the 3 objects are there. At this point, I wanted to check the AHEAD image. So, in Fits viewer, I clicked "open file" in the top right, selected the AHEAD image, and the program claimed it had opened the AHEAD image. The Ahead image's filename was present in the bar at the top of fits viewer (where you wiggle your mouse pointer around in the vid, to point out the filenames ARE showing), and so on. At this point I went "hm. That's odd. the AHEAD image looks -EXACTLY- like the BEHIND image I had opened in this program prior...only, its flipped upside down..." so, again, without closing fits viewer, I tried to open the BEHIND image again. When it opened, it was the original BEHIND image I was looking at.
So, I then CLOSED the fits viewer between opening each file. Only then would it allow them to open the TRUE file and display the TRUE picture. I noticed you did not close fits viewer between the opening of each file in the video.
My findings show that in the REAL ahead picture, only one of the objects was visible. It did, however, have the same 'spider-like' shape as the objects in the BEHIND.
Can someone confirm this bug with fits viewer?edit on 11-8-2011 by Qemyst because: (no reason given)edit on 11-8-2011 by Qemyst because: (no reason given)

Qesmyst I fail to see any object on AHEAD ? Maybe you could give your black and white settings ?
In ICER, the context of a bit in a pixel is determined by the bits already encoded in the pixel and in its eight nearest neighbors from the same segment of the subband. Thus, from the more-significant bit planes, bits from all nine of these pixels help to determine the context; from the current bit plane, bits from only four of these pixels are used (they are determined by the raster-scan encoding order within bit-plane segments). See Fig. 8.

Shouldn't we then see more of these "spider" artifacts in other examples from A and B? If you can show previous examples that mimic what the OP is showing (from the same telescopes), then I'll be inclined to believe you.

If the diameter of the sun is 870,000 miles, how big would these freaking ships be? I'm thinking it would take many planets completely turned into starship parts to make this go and yet there are three of them! Dream on I say, I'm goin with Phage on that alone.

With the size of the universe (billions, or even trillions of light years across), wouldn't you think by now, anything is possible? On the scale of things, Earth, our Sun and everything inside of our solar system, is microbial in scale.
