The UFO Phenomenon

Rosetta spots UFO on surface of comet

September 17, 2014 | Comment icon 102 comments



Is the object a piece of ice or something more ? Image Credit: ESA
An object described as a 'metallic disc' has turned up in a close-up photograph of the comet.
Eagle eyed Internet users have spotted something rather unusual in one of the photographs returned by the European Space Agency's Rosetta space probe which recently reached Comet 67P after traveling for more than a decade across the solar system.

The object, which resembles a light-colored circular feature, can be seen against the otherwise dark background of the comet and looks decidedly different to its surroundings.
Some people have suggested that the anomaly may be nothing more than a chunk of ice while others have subscribed to a rather more otherworldly interpretation.

The original full-size photograph can be viewed - here.

I am telling you exactly what is wrong with me; I see birocracy and coorporate thinking, investments and creations made to achieve slower results so people behind the projects and operations will get to stay more time employed under the program. I see contracts signed with dedicated manufacturing older companies that are supplying extrimely costly parts built with outdated and costly technologies. No wonder the master cam on the curiosity rover has only 2.1 megapixels. In matter of fact was built under an older project designed 11 years ago with the tehnology existent back then. Also in 2 year... [More]

Rosetta's camera sucks, all it does is take low res photos WTF. Do a little research on OSIRIS and Philae before whining. http://sci.esa.int/r...bodylongid=1642 Instrument Deion OSIRIS (Optical, Spectroscopic, and Infrared Remote Imaging System) is a dual camera imaging system operating in the visible, near infrared and near ultraviolet wavelength ranges. OSIRIS consists of two independent camera systems sharing common electronics. The narrow angle camera is designed to produce high spatial resolution images of the nucleus of the target comet. The wide angle camera has a wide field of view and... [More]

Ok. I am waiting to see real spectacular photos ... I like you Merc because you are well educated, patient and respectful in dialogs.... Unlike jesse that in all of his answers he seems to be out of balance, ironical and arrogant.

Actually you have already seen spectacular photos, truly spectacular photos of a comet from a spacecraft in orbit around it. It's a first.

Utmost respect should be given to the smart little probe and the team behind it. This mission is ground breaking in so many ways. An orbital rendezvous is always a major feat, even for reaching a body as massive as a planet, and actually achieving orbit around an object as small as a comet is amazing, and I don't think we appreciate that. The gravity of a planet sized object will do much of the work for you when attempting to rendezvous with it, however a comet will have such a tiny influence over space that the calculations and consequent maneuvres must be absolutely precise. While the probe ... [More]

Unlike jesse that in all of his answers he seems to be out of balance, ironical and arrogant. every ******* photograph is spectacular as it's of another bloody planet. Humanity despite the litany of problems we bring upon ourselves as a species has managed to do the unthinkable and place something on another planet successfully and are rewarding us the common man with images from across the unimaginable gulfs of space every day. That you don't think they're "... [More]

Someone mention Scott C Waring, a www jeeze, they guy who sees rabbits and faces and all sorts of proof of alien technology. If that is where this picture is from just ask Scott he knows it all and we are all fools not to see it!
