Before I made my recent discovery about the planets of our solar system, article found here, I spent countless hours over the duration of years (2009-2011) searching through Google Sky for anomalies and studying the structure of space. It appears that I’ve explored over 30% of the entire “sky”. Recently I spent time looking through the 10,000 plus screenshots. Now I will begin to publish some of my findings here starting with possible advanced civilizations (type II and III).

“A Dyson sphere is a hypothetical megastructure originally described by Freeman Dyson. Such a “sphere” would be a system of orbiting solar power satellites meant to completely encompass a star and capture most or all of its energy output. Dyson speculated that such structures would be the logical consequence of the long-term survival and escalating energy needs of a technological civilization, and proposed that searching for evidence of the existence of such structures might lead to the detection of advanced intelligent extraterrestrial life.”

Cosmic Archaeology

“Searching for signatures of cosmic-scale archaeological artifacts such as Dyson spheres or Kardashev civilizations is an interesting alternative to conventional SETI. Uncovering such an artifact does not require the intentional transmission of a signal on the part of the original civilization.

This type of search is called interstellar archaeology or sometimes cosmic archaeology. The detection of intelligence elsewhere in the Universe with interstellar archaeology or SETI would have broad implications for science. The constraints of the anthropic principle, for example, would have to be loosened if a different type of intelligence was discovered elsewhere.

A variety of interstellar archaeology signatures could include non-natural planetary atmospheric constituents, stellar doping with isotopes of nuclear wastes, Dyson spheres, as well as signatures of stellar and galactic-scale engineering. “

  1. Google Sky is a mosaic of images from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, the Digitized Sky Survey and the Hubble Space Telescope.

  2. I’m an amateur astrophotographer for the last 30 yrs. You’d be surprised what long exposures with sensitive CCD cameras can bring out in terms of anomalies, artifacts and deficiencies in lenses, telescopes optics, filters and focal reducers.

    Lots of these artifacts are lens reflections from bright stars in the field or bright stars just outside the field. For example, the blue rings in some of the images above were probably taken with the blue filter of a RGB filters set and a monochrome camera. Three exposures are taken, one with each filter and then combined afterward to produce a color image. Since blue stars are usually the brightest, you get more of these artifacts than most others. Since the reflection is not at the focal plane, it is an out-of-focus ring of a bright star. Usually, it is the filter just in front of the focal plane that is producing the reflection!

    There’s a type of artifact called a “Schmidt Ghost” and I get those a lot. It is a reflection off the front Schmidt corrector on Schmidt-Cassegrain or Schmidt-Newtonian telescopes. I own both types, so I’ve long suffered with that problem. It looks like a smudge and is usually blue. That is probably what you’re seeing with the blue smudges in some of the above images.

    The images with multiple “rings” are slightly out-of-focus shots. You wouldn’t believe how long I used I take to focus shots and still get it wrong after much tedious effort on my part. I usually throw these kinds of images away. lol. But, last year I invested in a “Bahtinov Focus Mask” and that has made my life much easier. You just watch the diffraction spikes that the mask produces and center the spike pattern over the star and it produces a perfect focus each time. Best 20 bucks I ever spent! heheh

    Now, this is not to say that all the above are just these kinds of anomalies. There are lots of planetary nebulae in the sky and they produce ring-like structures. Planetary nebulae are old stars that blew off their outer layers and form a shell around the star. The shell is thin, so looking through the center you can see through it, but towards the edges you are looking through more of the shell material and it appears denser. The “Ring Nebula” is perhaps the most famous example.

    So, do I discount the possibility that all the above are just reflections and camera/lens artifacts? No. But, I’m just letting you know of the possibilities. Like I said, I’ve been doing this a long time – first with film and now with Digital SLR’s and CCD cameras. I’ve taken tens of thousands of images. If you want to see my work, check out my Flickr page:


    • Thank you for commenting! That was very informative. I always wondered why there seemed to be so many more blue anomalies than the rest. I will need your take on some other artifacts once I get them posted. What do you think about the green or orange anomalies? From what I’ve seen the orange ones tend to be especially rare.

      • Wow you took those pictures by yourself? They are really amazing. I’m sure there’s a lot I can learn from you. Thanks again for commenting and spreading some knowledge on this matter.

      • You’re most welcome.

        I’ve seen the green and orange anomalies with cheap LRGB filters. They produce more reflections than LRGB filters that cost more and are better made. For instance, the set I own only cost about $100 bucks, but there are some $900 LRGB filters that minimize the reflections. A little dirt on the filter will increase the effect, too. (BTW, the “L” filter is for luminance – it is clear and only filters the UV and IR light.)

        Filters are usually loaded in a mechanized filter wheel just in front of the focal plane of the the monochrome CCD camera. Each shot is done then the filter wheel is advanced, either manually or electronically, for the next color. A bright star off-axis to the center of the CCD chip will produce an offset ring reflection on the filter. It has to do with the steep angle that the light rays take with a focal reducer/field flattener lens some distance in front of the filter. A bright red or orange star will produce the rings, but there are less of those kinds of stars than bright blue stars, so you see less of them.

        Yes, all those images are my own. Also, I have another site I post images to that has more images, including some of planets:



        • Do you know what produces the different mainly green, red, blue, or thin normal lines/streaks in google sky? I’ve documented a lot of different types of those. The large ones look like obvious glitches but others appear non uniform and possible “natural” phenomenon. I’ve heard they are probably over developed stars that streak. Which sounds reasonable for some things I found but others I’m not sure.

          • No, I’m not sure what the streaks are. Some digital anomalies make lines, but those are CCD “blooming” artifacts and they are usually perfectly straight. Blooming usually goes down a column of pixels that are leaking current from an over-saturated group of pixels from a bright star. Perhaps the projection correction used to map the images to the sky makes blooming artifacts curve or something? For sure, some of the images you posted are still unexplained, IMO.

  3. Is 41 the faint circle at the bottom left of lower ray of big star?

    Can you measure the distance of these things from Earth in light years?

    • Yes that’s the one. I can’t measure their distances from Earth but I’m sure some scientist with the proper equipment can as long as those anomalies are still in the same location where I found them.

  4. Great research!
    Are these ring formations the last gasp of exploding stars?
    Anomaly 26, blue star. Why is it blue?
    Anomaly 32 and 38, are these charismatic formations known and named? If not, can YOU name them?

    • Thanks. I have no doubt that some of these are supernova remnants but not all of them. There are a few regions I located that have tons of the smaller circles, so it would be practically impossible for there to be so many supernovas simultaneously in one area. I’m not sure why that star is blue, possibly it could be really hot. I plan on making a post soon about random anomalies since I found a lot of strange blue, green, and some orange objects. Whenever I sort through enough of my screenshots I will try to name the unknown structures.

  5. Thanks for sifting thru tons of sand to lead us to these jems.

  6. Honestly, what are we supposed to make of this? It just looks like a bunch of dots to me.
