2nd May 2011 Notes: Reviewing the Comet Rectangles from 25th April

We were still puzzled by the 3 rectangles in the image of comet Elenin ( now confirmed to have been comet Wild instead) in our post on 25th April.

So we took another picture of a comet (Siding Spring this time around) and repeated the steps to break down the image as we did with our post on the 25th of last month.

The result is shown below with our broken down picture on the right side of the image……. and as you can see no rectangles.

So we are still puzzled.

The image of Comet Wild , relabeled for some reason as Elenin, did go viral with the huge interest in Elenin. We suspect that if we analyzed the original image taken by Steve E. Farmer Jr of the Tzec Maun Observatory we would not see those rectangles.
