The top two photos are the same...I just color to the structures so that you could see them.
The top and bottom photo is the same, I just color to the structures so you can see them.
First you must know this is not a black and white photo, but an infrared photo. The Mariner 10 had an "8-postition filter wheel." Each filter allows the camera to take a different kind of photo. The infrared filter is so powerful that if you pour ink onto a typed page, you can see right through the ink and read the words as if the ink never existed. That is what happened to the shadow areas on Mercury in this photo. The shadows hid a honeycomb-like structure that always varies in shape, but its smaller components resembles that of...a honeycomb. Other structures are located near hills and mountains to blend in at a distance. This is why normal photos of Mercury will not have these structures in them.
Infrared filter can see through ink and tinting to allow you to read the words.
The top and bottom photo are the same, just added color to see the structures.
Top and bottom photo are same, but added orange color to building.
Here I present to you some photos that have exactly what most of you imagine alien structures will look like. There are many buildings tall, short, long, most made to conform to how we see a civilised society. These structures look like they were built recently. They are whole, without breaks or fissures and clean with no dirt or dust blanketing them over time, which tells me...they are occupied.
The photo above and below are the same, I just added color so you can see the building.
And to the aliens on Mercury, I send greetings. Since your structures have some commonality to our own, then there must be other things we have in common. We the people are asking to meet you. Balls in your court. Scott C. Waring
