Media Advisory: Press Conference in Brazil to Announce Discovery in Outer Solar System
European Southern Observatory ^ | 25 March 2014 | ann14021

Posted on 03/26/2014 7:59:37 AM PDT by SpinnerWebb

An international team of astronomers, led by Felipe Braga-Ribas (Observatório Nacional/MCTI, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), has used telescopes at seven locations in South America, including the 1.54-metre Danish and TRAPPIST telescopes at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile, to make a surprise discovery in the outer Solar System. This unexpected result raises several unanswered questions and is expected to provoke much debate. A press conference will be held in Brazil to present the new results and allow opportunities for questions. Note that all information regarding these findings is under strict embargo until 19:00 CET (15:00 BRT) on Wednesday 26 March 2014. When: The conference will be held on 26 March 2014 at 14:30 local time (BRT) and will take place in Portuguese with a summary in English. Who: The conference presenters are: Felipe Braga-Ribas, Observatório Nacional/MCTI, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Bruno Sicardy, LESIA, Observatoire de Paris, CNRS, Paris, France Prof. Roberto Martins, Observatório Nacional/MCTI, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Prof. Julio Camargo, Observatório Nacional/MCTI, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Where: The event takes place in Observatório Nacional, Auditório do Grupo de Pesquisas em Astronomia (GPA), in the GPA/LINEA Building in Rua General José Cristino, 77, Bairro de São Cristovão, Rio de Janeiro - RJ, 20921-400, Brazil.

The New Horizons team is due to make an announcement about a Kuiper belt object today. They say it isn’t about anything the NH craft will be visiting after the Pluto fly by.

That’s an odd-looking object. It almost looks like some sort of craft.

That picture looks eerily familiar to something I spotted far and high with binoculars one time.

It was one of those things I never told anyone about.

If in the outer solar system it has to be pretty darn big to be visible from Earth.
Size of a small planet, yet it's not spherical.

My guesses are:
A recently broken up comet.
A computer glitch.
The mother ship that once colonized Earth.

Is that picture you posted a spoof, or does it actually have something to do with the press conference?

It's the missing Malaysian plane.

The ghost of Bin laden told Putin to tell the Pakistanis to tell the Iranians to fly the plane into space because that's a better hiding spot.

There is no doubt in my mind that this discovery will be something natural — and not any kind of technology.

It is the “Greys” mother ship, they don’t have FTL drive so they have to fly around sub-light in a big dumb ship then they use their tiny saucer craft to abduct rednecks and probe them...

I am not expecting any technology either, which is why that spoof photo caught me off-guard. I thought it might be an unusual-shaped natural object that resembled - in part - a fabricated artifact, like the “face” on Mars.

Can’t be too important if it’s being discussed in a quaint and obscure language.
