Tethys Saturn's Moon: Boulders and other strange Anomalies.

I've detected a very strange oddity on a very distant Moon in the Saturn's Moons Constellation... Tethys.

These images captured by Cassini Spacecraft show an incredible and massive behaviour: Boulders which have leaving behind very very long tracks. The very incredible oddity is that the "boulders(?)" tracks come in and out by very deep craters. So, the "boulders" are not on a flat terrain but seems that they climb slopes and jagged land.

How it is possible?
Are they boulders or something else?


Another anomaly inside a crater... A BASE?

Tethys is a giant snowball composed mainly of water ice. These lines you describe are faults or 'graben' to give them their correct name. You can see similar geological features all over the solar system and right here on earth. Here is a good example from our own moon.

I see boulders and craters.

Do you honestly think they'd release photos with legitimate evidence of anything but boulders and craters?

I won't elaborate herein, but one possibility for trails or grooves left by boulders clearly having moved on the surface of a small moon is that it was the larger body that moved and not the boulder.

Sounds carzy, yes? But not so crazy if you have the technological capabilities to move the larger body. If so, then the smaller bodies slide about like your coffee cup does on the roof of your car as you drive off forgetting that it is there. Some boulders on small bodies will even slide off of the surface of the larger and be lost if the impetus of motion on the larger is strong or long enough.

That phenenomena is exactly how Phobos got its hundreds of grooves and precisely what they never want you to know and why they don't release many images on Phobos since the Vikings orbiters took hundreds of images to document that exact scene in the 1970s.

Phobos was moved into its tight, near perfect orbit by intelligent control.

They sure bombed the hell out of that place!

I don't see any rolling rocks, even with all those arrows, I do see long lines regardless of the level of terrain, I do not see a spaceship refuelling. There could be a base though, but you need to see into the dark, unfortunately you can't.

Reminds me of the Death Valley sailing stones or moving rocks.

I'm afraid that I don't see a base or a space ship refueling in that last photo.

What I see is jagged rocks, shadows, and as for your space ship, a impact crater, that has newer impact craters on it's rim.
