I'm an absolute ignoramus when it comes to analyzing aerial photograph. I'm just not qualified. But I am going to give you my analysis anyway.

Iím looking at a printout of ten pictures. Four pictures across followed by two then four pictures below. The first picture gives a reference for what is 300 meters. I will refer to these pictures as 1 to 10. Also Iím going to assume that the ď300 meterĒ scale applies to all pictures. Please let me know if this assumption is right.

#1. I have no idea what the formation is in this picture. Using a magnifying glass the very bright areas could be some kind of natural formation yet is it intriguing and might be artificial.

On a scale of 1 to 10, ten being defiantly artificial, I will give this picture a 4.

#2. This defiantly looks like an artificial object. It measures 400 meters wide by 600 meters long. That would make it about 1,312 feet wide 1,968.5 feet long. This could be some kind of structure for a shelter or something like the Huston Astrodome. Maybe a space vehicle though I would not bet on it.

I rate this picture a 9, I would give this picture a 10 but thereís a slim chance that this could be a formation of frozen water.

#3. Here we have something like a building casting a shadow about more then 300 meters long. Iím not an expert as to what angle the sun is what this photo was taken so there no real guess I can take on how high the structure really is. Then again it could be a ground formation in the shape of a V.

I rate this picture as a 7.

#4. Iím not sure what I should be looking for in this picture. I donít see anything that looks artificial.

#5. This also looks like an artificial structure. This could be a building complex. Straight lines, arches and angles with square rooftops.

I give this picture a ďThumb UpĒ a score of 10.

#6. I been in Airplanes over the ocean, that what this looks like to me.

Iím not sure how to score this since it looks just water from above.

#7 No matter how hard I try I can get my imagination to see anything here.

I rate this a 2.

#8 First I think of another Martian face, but that just doesnít fly. I just donít feel this is artificial. I would be willing to bet that pictures of the Grand Canyon from space depending on the time of day could form a face or an even something looking like man made.

I rate this picture a 3

#9 this picture looks like a huge wave of water that was instantly frozen.

No rating on this one.

#10 I canít see anything here to get even excited about.

I rate this as a 1.

Now Mr. Tripp, help educate all us amateurs, please tell us how to look at these pictures so we can see what you see.
