11/6/2005: "Glowing water" in satellite image



Via Fark comes this NPR item which covers a really wild "earth at night" type image.

In this shot, which is pretty cool to start, you notice a bluish piece of snot at the lower right, off the coast of Africa. That goober is not a mistake by the photographer. It's glowing water. "...about the size of Connecticut, and researchers think billions of glowing bacteria are the source."

Whoa!

Nah.. some poor country dumping radioactive waste inte the sea.

And what have they poured into the nile...



xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Nov 6 12:39 PM

Poor countries can't afford radioactive waste.
I'm guessing it's Academy Award Night in Atlantis.



slang  Sunday Nov 6 02:42 PM

My guess is.....


Aliens.

ET type aliens.



seakdivers  Sunday Nov 6 02:46 PM

Slang - you beat me to it. I was going to say the same thing!



wolf  Sunday Nov 6 02:56 PM

Nah. I think it's the Predator kind of aliens. The shiny, glowy thing is bait.



Trilby  Sunday Nov 6 02:59 PM

It doesn't look like a goober to me. It looks like a completely different kind of stain.



Happy Monkey  Sunday Nov 6 03:06 PM

I think Abyss aliens are the most likely culprits.

I can't see UT stooping to the Presidency after being a Dot Org Legend.
