Hi All

I see plenty of right angles, left angles, circle shaped objects.

And odd objects like the one in attached image.

Thanks Richie


 Hi Richie, looks like you have found Wilson's, long lost cousin buried in the sand off Niku! Wilson from the movie (cast away). Seems his cuz is a orange and white soccer ball...  :D ... All kidding aside, perhaps it's a star fish or an Anemone. Here's a link with some orange and white sea critters..  :o  http://www.robots4farms.com/porteaucove.html

Reply to John, No

An aluminium plane on edge of reef, with tidal wave action, of which is seen at many south pacific islands

There is a good chance your going to get wreckage anywhere along reef face, So i find it best to post what we find than over look it  :)

Thanks Richie

Hi Jimmie

It probable is natural, but given how barren it is down there

It's worth getting second opinion  :)

 Absolutely!!!! Agreed!!! It's just amazing how much the object resembles a soccer ball 3/4 buried. I could not resist the "Wilson" comment.  Happy new Year!!!!!

Did u see many star fish in the Rov footage ?

No star fish.  Lots of sea anemone skeletons just like the "pocket watch."

Hi All

Just wanted to share an image with ye all, Without starting another thread

This is my image of 2012 Tighar related.

And whenever a doubt comes into my mind, This is the image i look at to make it disappear

99% of Tighar disagree with me the object in circle is the shadow of a plane.

But i believe otherwise  ;)

Thanks Richie

P.S will delete this post tomorrow, Just wanted to share my 2012 image of the year with you all  :)

Well if that is a shadow of an airplane Richie, you can take away my 71st birthday tomorrow.

Did more objects show up on that dive video after the 2012 debris Field Video clip ends?

Not that I saw, but I can put up more of that dive video.  Lord knows what you guys will see.

Is the Nessie object really that close to the reef edge as annotated on the map in the original thread post?



Quote
The red X in the attached KAP (Kite Aerial Photography) photo of the reef edge shows exactly - as best we can calculate - where the object was in relation to the reef edge.  The photo was taken in 2007 at nearly low tide.

One thing that struck me looking at this image was the lines that can be seen at the 4 oclock position to the red X. Is it possible that these line are drag marks from something heavy being dragged over the reef edge. Like a broken strut end? They are very strait and I see them no where else. Just throwing this out for consideration.

Oh, and Happy New year to ye all.

It was a nice thought though! A pocket watch just lying there  :)
Agreed  :)

Sharp eyes and a good thought Peter, but in looking at other KAP photos of the reef I can see similar marks that are clearly not associated with Nessie.  I think we're looking at cracks that develop in the reef surface.

Thanks for posting the reef picture Ric.  The reef edge does seem like an area of extreme wave forces and a spot where lightweight objects could not stay long unless hung up or tied down.
Interesting there may be a crack so close to Nessie.
From your observations do you think those cracks are big enough to drive a stake into to? Possibly in an attempt to tie down the object?

I don't recall noticing them when I was walking on the reef but from the KAP photos I would guess that they might be 4 to 6 inches wide.

I would think you would need to be very careful while walking on the reef. My shoe would easily go down into a 6 inch wide crack and possibly be caught there. ???

Or Not, depending on your bodies natural ability to heal itself and how you treated the wound!

Bad Bob, who was never spanked with a fly swatter.  ;)
