Nahh.. Man made... notice the reflective characteristic...

The "true" one would show no reflections from any direction / distance... like in some flight simulators...🤓

 


Flight Simulation is the Virtual Materialization of a Dream...

Uninstalling flightsims is a temptation I can never resist...

How much do you bet that the guys who found it were the ones who put it there?

The authorities aren't revealing the location for public safety. So of course, 1001 conspiracy theories will now be invented.

How long do we think it will take? Expect Alex Jones to arrive in a week or two with shape shifting alien reptiles responsible.

The truth is out there... :ph34r:

They should go back there with some tools - hammer, magnet (is it steel?) pick axe, shovels investigate the ground see how it's shoved in there... Portable angle grinder, cutting torch - if someone put it there as a piece of art, that should soon bring the artist running :happy:

I really hope it is an alien artifact, I was hoping to get down there with some fellow hairless apes, beat each other up with thigh bones, and then cast those bones high into the air.

 

Hang on, that would make a great science fiction movie. 😲

And then the aliens go: "We placed a sophisticated intelligence tester and first contact device for them to find, and they hit it with stuff then cut it in half!"

"Mark this planet as a type 4 irredeemably stupid/hostile."

"Private glug!" Release a warning buoy!"

"Ensign blurgle! Set the device to self-destruct, (taking the planet with it) and lets go to warp!"

Given that this is 2020, that's a bad thing? :biggrin:

Anyone find it in MSFS yet? 🙂

If not I'm sure the mod will be created soon.

This is disappointing.

 

If you look closely you can see its held together with screws. Don't think super advanced aliens capable of traveling thousands of light years at relativistic speeds, or from another dimension, would be using screws and screw drivers. 😞

Clearly the Nimitz tic tac aliens didn't leave it there then.

You're right (as always). I think it was during the Terminator series that we learned that aliens don't screw.
