What are the bright spots on Ceres?
« on: March 03, 2015, 02:43:12 PM »
What is the FE take on images coming back from the space probe Dawn?  It is approaching a dwarf planet Ceres and is seeing unusual bright spots on the surface:

More NASA BS, or something of interest?

According to modern REism, it is probably a subsurface ocean or water vapor. It could also be large mirrors. Of course, it could also be a photographic artifact. This is assuming the image is genuine (which it's not). But, hey, it's fun to speculate.

So why would it be fun to speculate if they are just fake?  There can be no possibility of discovering something new if they are just made up, so in that case who cares?

The same reason it's fun to speculate on the outcome of television shows, novels, games, etc.

Were you trying to prove some sort of point with this photo?

Just that there is real and exciting things going on in the world that FET is excluded from.  There is no reason to think about these issues, since you just think it is fake, you have no sense of wonder and amazement.  Just boring work trying to figure out how to draw that Map ya'll have been working on for the last few hundred years.

since you just think it is fake

Of course it's fake. Look at the movement of Ceres in the video. The animation software they were using seems very choppy. Also, if you observe the video closely you will see that the reflective crater magically pops up about half-way through the rotation. That is not natural at all. This was clearly shopped.

It is about 3/4 of a revolution.  It is a simple animated gif of several images taken at a large interval.  That is what would be expected.

The crater does not "magically" appear half way through the rotation, it's always there. The reflection starts halfway through, because that's how reflections work, making it seem as if the crater comes out of nowhere. Put your mouse around the middle of the moon and look out for craters passing through it.
To a flat earth theorist, being a "skeptic" is to have confirmation bias.
Just because I'm a genius doesn't mean I know everything.
