My calculations working with the raw picture data of Width 5064 pixels
Height 5120 pixels and knowing 1.85 metres/pixel place the the lengh of the tower shadow 375 meters.
This is now where the interesting part comes in. Here i list the length of the tower feature in picture and calculate using the trigometric
relationship of Tan angle with the opposite (height of tower object ) and adjacent (length of shadow), to work out the height of tower. The true
height of tower is course based on the true elevation angle of the sun.
at 5 degrees angle of sun - 32 metres height
at 10 degrees angle of sun - 66 meters
at 15 degrees angle of sun - 100 meters
at 20 degrees angle of sun - 136 meters
at 22.5 degrees angle of sun - 155 meters
I stopped at 22.5 degrees elevation of sun relative to the region area of interest around anomally. Why because there is a very noticable crater below
the object which has 1/4 of its inner illuminated. Therefore 90 degrees / 4 = 22.5 and i dont consider the sun is at higher elevation that this.
So heres where the debate resides now. What is the angle of the sun because if its 22.5 degrees thats quite a tall object. For example its height
would be the same to that of the Twintowers of Deutsche Bank Headquarter in Frankfurt that rise to 155metres. I included a picture of towers for a
visual reference.
