This 'special' page was created to further explore the existence of 'tidal' planets around giant stars, with possible answers offered in the form of stasis created between tidal orbital sheer forces and powerful out-thrusting solar flares.


This GIC page is very concentrated. A number of different subjects dealing with show'n'tell images reveal how objects are infesting local regions around giant stars, even being in orbital structures unlike orbits of our solar system. As well, checkerboard patterns associated with larger deep space rills systems are explored.

There is so much information to present (in GIC in total) that is has become increasingly difficult for me to figure out where to put it all and so I have opted for an increasing reliance on using cross-links to explain or illustrate one thing in reference to another.

For instance, the word 'saddle' has become generic in GIC in describing a certain class of planetoid object or shape, seeming in orbits around giant stars. The word 'saddle' has no other astronomy meaning except here in GIC, and the reason for using it is explained at this cross-link.

I am also aware that most astronomers will view these informations as second class or bogus. However, I feel, if right in any small part, others can finish it up and be right in all parts so I have satisfaction of having contributed something, even if it is just to show a way or two toward more worthwhile results for the efforts.


A special idea has occurred, one of my more risky naked face kind of ideas, regards flares and ejectas. Following are two solar flare photos in animation, one a flare pushing through a quadrant, the other effecting a hemesphere. These, for our Sun, a normal star, are not energetic enough to push planets or concentrated gobules of matter around.

The big-risk suggestion is that flares at giant stars may have enough power to in fact shove, push, sheepherd, and thrust concentrations of matter.

In which case tidal locked duos and trios may be getting a recursive push back into lineal vector orbital arrays by flare power and not exactly from just some mysterious tidal locking mechanism which seems in violation of normal Keplerian and Newtonian gravitational system laws.

Recurring shoves and pushes out from a giant star's explosives may be enough to keep planetary matters in coherent stable formations which orbit a star intact in tidal locked clusters, (unlike Jupiter or Earth which can stay the same - theoretically - for billions of years),   the objects within giant star orbiting clusters are constantly transmuting and tranforming in intrinsic shape per each object, as two and three objects themselves stay coherently locked in place lineally outward from the star like three markers on a second hand, tidal forces tending to force them out of position, flare powers forcing them back into positions, on an ongoing basis as long as the differential sheer pressures from gravitational tides, and counter balancing outward flare forces, maintain a stasis.

There, that above paragraph, is my major statement. Yes, indeed. How I dislike the word indeed, so much so that I watch diligently for ways to use it, and, here is one. Yes, indeed, I am happy.

(I will tell you in fact what I think, every time I see the word 'indeed' in astronomy literature. I think, here we have an IQ of 145 trying to do 165 IQ work in matters which have a 135 IQ capacity. You can hardly believe how much I do not like the word 'indeed').

If correct, giant star solar flare powers can rather easily explain how objects of very peculiar seeming kinds can have sustained orbits of very mysterious kinds around our giant neighbors.

This will have to be introduced as a new class of planetary orbital mechanics - called, indeed, Tidal Planets. Unlike normal gravitational planetary orbital dynamics such as known and studied in detail in our solar system, this new class of solar orbital dynamics is ephemeral, transitory, temporary, but real.

And, a final introductory remark. This page has evolved into something like a video game, one thing added, then another, to where, the best information is buried two or three links deep. You have to click on the clicks and keep toggling the wand, to find the jewels.

A chance splash by spilled coffee cup onto worktable could not have done better to illustrate 'island ovals' around giant stars. Click here for the exciting news.

  Alpha Peg   These, in Dss images downloaded as Alpha Peg, may be stars ripped apart and distorted to such high degree, they have become too cool (at the time the photo was taken) to have nuclear processes, and so are dark. Unfortunately, mouth full of bubble gum speculation does not end here. They may not be yet stars flamed on, then flamed off. For that matter, they may not be stars. You can remove the bubble gum from your mouth.

Please notice an element of great importance. If correct, the images show orbit revolution. The image at right is Dss 1st gen and flaring streaming downward is bright. By the time a 2nd gen image was taken, the downjet had migrated into fragmented uptrhusts at the other side of the star, and their luminosity had translated from radiant (below the star), to absorption (above the star). Such radiance cum absorption has not been seen for GIC in other Dss images of giant stars.

  Alpha Peg     Alpha Peg  

I would like to go full throttle with air raid sirens and deep sea fog horns announcing at full volume, declaring quescent stars close to a companion, having been ripped apart and have (perhaps temporarily) lost all round star shape and nuclear processes but the plain fact is I do not know if these fantastic fronds are enough matter to be small stars or are merely ejectas such as currently seen at WC 124, and He2-104.

What is obvious, is that they glaringly exist. Their existence has been first reported in the Planets.htm page pioneered by GIC.

I am going to treat objects around stars as a whodunit - are they there, if so, what are they, why.

The reason why mystery dinner theatre is possible is because two images have recently turned up (circ end of March 2002). Both show how material objects can infest space around stars, and, that some of these objects are 'bubbles'. The first 'infesting' means is outlined in the next images, for Vega, and active star MWC 1080. The second means is linked here.


  Bubbles around new massive star Mwc1080   First, a glimpse at mysterious 'rounds' at giant star Vega. (see green image at left).

It is now possible to say that mysterious rounds appearing in the vacinity of giant star Vega are probably real.

This is because, caught in the act by a CFHT photo, (above right), mysterious rounds surround active star MWC 1080 at close quarters. The rounds, (next below) actually floating bubbles, are plainly obvious, seen in the color image after the image is highly enhanced. Dark dots beside a bubble in the lower left may be planet-like objects, as is a larger dark object in the opposite corner upper right.

It is not just that there are bubbles at MWC 1080 and Vega, it is that the bubbles look the same!

The Vega bubbles are farther out from Vega, and those seen are concentrated on one side of the star. This is different than at MWC 1080 where the bubbles seem more evenly distributed through all quadrants and could be more recent for reasons of being newer Both bubble clusters, Vega and MWC 1080 seem by eyeball guage, to be near their parent star, not far out in space around one star, and close in at the other, both bubble clusters seem to be at roughly the same finger length distance from parent.

You can see the Vega bubbles by clicking up a more telltale image, (showing bubbles concentrated to the left of the star), or going to the GIC reference for Vega bubbles here.

Since MWC 1080 is a young massive star only about 1 million years old, what is the possibility that the 'bubbles' are new stars or proto star mass concentrates which have not yet flamed on, or have insufficient mass to gravitationally collapse and turn nuclear with bright starlight. More details about new stars associated with MWC 1080, are found in the above CHFT link, which you should read if curious.


Exploding mantle around active star WR124 - as seen by the Hubble telescope - is pushing gobular clumps of matter at a furious pace into nearby space surrounding the star.

WR124, a massive star with a gigantic fiery mantle, may help explain how so many kinds in so many numbers of gobules, planetoids, island ovals, and saddles can occur commonly around giant stars.

Many large stars have been found (by GIC investigations of Dss archive images) to have objects of many kinds often in hordes, also in planetary orbital tidal locked groups, within their vacinities suggesting that orbital structures at stars are commonplace rather than rare or non-existent as is currently believed.

I have looked at Dss plates of WR124 and not seen anything of particular interest (for me), except, a general texture of wrinkling in deep space surrounding flaming star WR124.

Tidal planet investigations continue below, here.


Ngc 4631 in very high enhancement shows that Ngc 4631 and the small nearby elliptical galaxy are interractive. It is possible the smaller galaxy has just passed through Ngc 4631 and is proceeding on a journey away from the big guy, after leaving behind its more traditional spiral stuff, if, in fact, it was originally a small spiral form galaxy.

In fact this very scene is happening right now as we speak at Andromeda, (in present day time frame at Earth), where M110 is just now leaving Andromeda and sailing forth into space after passing through Andromeda leaving behind M110's original spiral form which can still be seen in skeleton arms made of hot clumps in strings winding out and around the now elongated elliptical M110 proper.


A lot of color had to be pumped into this image from this source, to get the rill grids to show up.

Ignore the resulting effect on Andromeda proper at this moment the look of Andromeda itself is meaningless, it is the deep space surrounding Andromeda that is being questioned.

The rill grids seem most dominant in highly enhanced red, with blue. Green shows some grid. Blue on its own shows poorer grid details.

I have to tell you in utmost sincerety that I think there is deep space cross hatching above Andromeda. I first spotted it in an Andromeda image I was looking at circ. 1997 but only saw faint hints of it in the high resolution views of a powerful graphics editor. The deep space cross hatching beyond Andromeda did not appear in any convincing way in the lower resolution views of a browser.

So I dropped the ball on this. I did not abandon the notion, instead, kept a sharp eye for any deep space anomalies involving Andromeda. One result is the Bullseye, famed in GIC opinion but not otherwise confirmed by any other Andromeda image viewed, except for a second major deep space race track oval near Andromeda, to the east of the Bullseye, which GIC conciders a possible show of stupendous deep space gravity waves in action.

A third Andromeda view, along the way, showed sheeting, which in one particular image was dominant enough to include in a GIC view of deep space sheeting at Andromeda.

Recently, circ. March 2002, another Andromeda image from this image gallery site, also shows similar 'sheeting' as well. Cross hatch patterning has returned in an Andromeda image. So, it is time to declare the possibility that deep space cross-hatch gravity waves (just a hint) are indeed showing up in certain telescope views of Andromeda.

Ps. the particular image source gallery features images by Gendler who is no amateur although is an amateur extremely enthusiastic in advanced hobby venue, having dozens of images featured in sites such as APOD, plus some in Hubble's main archives, and uncounted dozens of images published in numerous astronomy monthly magazines.

I take it seriously that the above Andromeda image is very well crafted and reveals what it reveals. Patching lines and blending from composite composure is evident, but so are the evidences of major 'sheeting', and deep space cross hatches. The cross hatches seem to be a bit like deep space moire surrounding M101, in the Andromeda case a small section of M101 moire is similar to large cross hatching above Andromeda.

  Click for large  

A problem is that some of the cross hatching is very close to being at horizontal and vertical right angles, as if a grid on graph paper. The counter arguement to this is that cross hatching lines are also irregular, that is, slanted slightly, as if ruling out straight across image callibration errors which may have crept into the processing. Non linear lines are a good indication of phenomena vrs false positive.

A Histogram Equalize view of the image shows faint traces to the left of M110, of how image portions were parsed together in graphic editing from parsed digital telescope and camera capture. It does not seem that the irregular patching is responsible for the cross hatch checkerboard grids seen in the GIC image enhancements further above.

The concept of 'checkerboard grids' in deep space is not unreasonable. A deep space checkerboard turns up in a color view of Ngc 7673, supported by deep space checkerboard criss crossing rills in Dss plates of Ngc 7673.The two occurrences for Ngc 7673 back to back in two different images from two completely independent telescope services confirms that something of unusual complexity is occupying deep space around Ngc 7673.

Since Andromeda deep space complexity is confirmed, it re-enforces deep space activities in other areas. GIC likes to sustain the viewpoint that these deep space complexities are real, are herein (in GIC) called 'rills', and are extremely dim luminant views of stupendous gravity waves which saturate the freedoms of space both near and far. It is possible, in the way GIC thinks of things, that the gravity waves came first before matter, and can account for at least some quantities known as 'dark matter'

Here, giant rill systems off the Eastern flank, and behind the Western flank of Andromeda, called the 'Bullseye', and 'Eye In The Sky', are examined.

Here, a giant oval is examined in nearby deep space beyond the Eastern flank of Andromeda.

Here, the massive supersize of Andromeda is investigated.

I am hinting at suspician that deep space rippling, rill grids, and sheeting around Andromeda are unfair to image engineers who not understanding what their images are trying to tell them and have had to process Andromeda views trying to work out of the picture, ripples, grids, and sheeting.

It is possible the following image was worked to try and smooth out color tone regions which are actually at Andomeda but are too dim to be self evidently distinct. The fortunate feature of the above Gendler image is that Andromeda itself can take very high enhancement levels, enough to show rill grids and deep space sheeting, and still look like Andromeda.


Vertical lines in an Andromeda image, from Noao, show up under very high green light enhancement. It is possible these lines are too vertical, caused by lighter fluid spoiling the film on the other hand tantalizing glimpses of major rippling in deep space in our local galactic neighborhood are consistently seen but none clear enough to be declarative. These two shows of green light gravity wave spectrum lines are the best I have so far for Andromeda.

For one thing, more than one Andromeda image shows a sharp distinct horizontal border between sundry matter density, and no density at all (dark space), in the lower left quandrants South/west below Andromeda.

Vertical rills (which may be false positives but the jury is out on this) are seen in an Noao image of local space which includes both the Large and Small Magellanic Cloud galaxies, which are both actually very small galactic devices.

The above image is included in a GIC page which contains a quick survey study of different kinds of rills in deep space.

Check out these outher Andromeda images (from Noao), they all show sheeting, or space density irregularities of one form or another.

Colliding galaxies Arp 242 (also called the 'mice'), is the deep space location of these parallel rills in a bandwidth shown above. More images are here.


Deep space checkerboard mottling has turned up in a Hubble color image of Ngc 7673. There is nothing I did to create the checkerboard. The only thing I did is to treat this Hubble image to Histogram Equalize in a graphic editing software (Paint Shop Pro ver 2.14). The checkerboard in deep space surrounding the galaxy is in the image.

This particular Hubble image of Ngc 7673 has gained impetus in proporting to show great concentrations of hot new blue star births clumping along the irregular arms for reasons that are found in several different conjectures none related. The reddish spiral galaxy to the right is concidered to be far to the rear, because it is red in red shifts.

However, the image, when enhanced, shows a collar around the left left end of the red small spiral galaxy. The color enhancement seems to show the small reddish spiral galaxy in a direct interaction with the larger Ngc 7673.

A long pause staring at the image suggests, (if the two are engaging) that the small red spiral may be at this moment in view time sailing into the larger Ngc 7673 and the collar around the left end is the plunger hole. If not a plunge, then the collar has to be explained, as, perhaps, light warpages co-incidentally creating a merger illusion. However, light illusion warpage is a bit hard to swallow.


  rill grids sweep past galaxy Ngc 7673   Dss 1st gen (60x60) arcminute plates of regions surrounding Ngc 7673 (below and left) confirm that something is effecting the space there. The Dss image shows meandering patterns of rills on a much larger scale. In the below piece, Ngc 7673 is shown in a colored window and is very small in comparison to the scale of much larger rills which trill past it. The trilling rills are immense.

The trilling rills were first observed in trilling parallel lines shown in a partial zoom in the above view reduced in size for display purposes. Trilling dual parallel lines are seen next in a view shifted to the east, passing an overbright nearby star.

The dual trills end in a sharp prominant loop further east, as seen next.

Covering approximately (150x90) arcminutes, makes it rather hard to show the whole structure in the scale of an ordinary desktop PC. To composite a whole picture, Dss plates were reduced by half. The rill system seems to peter out at the left, and concludes in a sharp loop at the far right.

A study of other deep space rill systems are here.


A large partial oval turns up in Dss 1st gen plates of giant star Denebola. The partial oval occupies about 120x90 arcminutes. The oval abruptly peters out in dark space but this may be a factor of media too dim to record.

It may not be that the rills appear, then abruptly fade away. The Dss (60x60) arcminute plates themselves seem inconsistent so might probably be missing a more extended field of rills.

Next are two views (both converted by Histogram Equalize adjustment - as are the above views), and in both, plate endborders mar the images.

Click for marred plate view 2

Rills such as these, for the moment, are regarded in GIC as manifestations of gigantic gravity waves in deep space rather than merely as image flaws or moire patterns from spurious lensing optics.

As already shown further above, a huge trilling rills structure is seen near irregular large galaxy Ngc 7673.

In fact, the subject of deep space giant gravity waves pervading space is covered with numerous examples, here.

All of the rills are in irregular oval shapes, one outstanding example encloses whole superlarge galaxies in the Perseus galaxy cluster. Another example is a test case showing gravity rills formed along a leading edge between dense and thin sundry matters in an area of space in which is located galaxy Ngc 6782, the formation at Ngc 6782 has been named 'The Matrix' for convenience of identification in GIC.

  rill grids surround galaxy M101   The 6782.htm page (linked immediately above) is actually a study of different kinds of rills, and includes tantalyzing hints of deep space rills and cross hatch gravity wave grids at Andromeda.

For instance there is strong evidence that space surrounding massive spiral galaxy M101 is saturated with gravity waves in both lineally consecutive and cross hatch moire grid arrangements. A zoom sample of the ambiant cross hatching is shown at left.

Another major deep space rills formation is called The Edge.


  Two saddles in tidal lineal orbit at Denebola   Two saddles - long thin objects - lay on a tidal orbit vectored straight to the center of Denebola. These are seen in a Dss 2nd gen (blue) plate for the star named Denebola.

Saddles in tidal locked orbits are shown at other stars here.

These uniquely unusual objects are herein called 'saddles' (two are shown in pink at left) because it is not easy to form any kind of mental picture as to what they actually are if seen closeup, nor, how they can form long lineal shapes, except, tidal forces in supposed mutually exclusive orbits which nonetheless are coherent and sustained are assumed to be sculpting factors.

Several days after the above paragraph was written, a plausible answer came to mind as to how saddles and tidal trios might occur in a sustained way, this is described here.

Such objects are called 'saddles' in GIC for no reason that needs to be continued. A name was needed when attempting to describe them at Betelgeuse and the name 'saddle' arrived in mind and stuck there. So, for the time being, saddles it is.

The definiter 'tidal-orbit' for such objects came readily to mind in understanding that two or more objects in the same straight-line orbital vector cannot stay together as a group due to sheer in gravitational velocity/period differentials, except here, around giant stars, there are groups locked together in defiance of gravitational orbiting differentials, ergo, they are, somehow, tidally locked. Three markers along a sweeping second hand is how they move. How they behave is as if the markers are made of silly putty and transmute in shape as the second hand sweeps around the parent star.

Obviously, I am evading producing equations that try to explain this. The reason is simple, that at my age I am disinclined to go through any new learning curves trying to develope sets of equations that might explain tidally locked groups of objects orbiting giant stars.

Perhaps there may be insights available to someone who reads gravitational differential principles that operate as one unified gear principle throughout our whole solar system. These are described in equations here, done when I was a young bucky of age 57.

Other saddles seen in orbits are typically in groups of three saddles per tidal locked orbital position. See different links at the top of the Planets1.htm page for insights on what GIC is calling 'tidal trios'.

As a reminder, GIC means 'Galaxies In Chaos', it is the principle name of this website domain whose 'Special New Page' you are now reading. The page title itself -'Special.htm' - is because the contents are a number of last minute items rounded up at the last minute and displayed together rather than being spread out through several new, or prior related, subject pages. (I am verrry close to retiring from this project and getting on with other things. If the new revamped Hubble ever comes online - spring 2002 - I suspect its discovery output is going to be so fast and furious I will not be able to keep up with it and so, expect not to hustle trying).


  Two offshifted saddles at Spica   Two long elongated ovals, could be saddles, are seen in a 1st gen Dss plate of giant star Spica.

Unlike other saddles which all seen are vectored to the center of the star, indicating tidally locked orbits, these two at Spica are on a vector which misses the center of the star, suggesting perhaps two separate orbits rather than one orbit which is tidally locked.

I have indicated several tiny dark spots in the plate, in color. These are marked only I do not know if they are emmulsion plate flaws or are planets hard enough to block light.

The two saddles are shown the same in full size view.

  Click for large   Click image for large

Curiously, most all of the marked objects are along a plane running a diagonal slant through space above the star. The objects do not appear to obey an orbital disk in the usual sense, instead they seem as if forming an angel's halo above the star.

I have also indicated in color two dark spots in the bright light halo of the 2nd gen (red) Dss plate for Spica, these seem more like planets transiting across the face of the mighty. In the upper corner of this plate is an anomalous small diffuse object marked in color.


Hubble's Mira hourglass at binary star system He2-104.

The Hubble image is incomplete. Part of the statter splash in the right wing of the hourglass is missing.

There is no question that the hourglass here at He2-104 is eerily similar to hourglasses seen at Super Nova sn1987a, and at the Hourglass nebula.

3d overlay (merge the image pair together by eyesight to see stereo) reveals the He2-104 to be more or less the same as the Hourglass nebular hourglass, that is, two extended bubble shells slightly overlap at the middle since we are looking at tubes slightly leaned toward us, co-incidentally, both the Hourglass hourglass and He2-104 hourglass are close to the same angles of inclination and tilt, further, both hourglasses are not cylindrically symmetric as is found in a true physical hourglass used by humans to measure time, there is a slight fold in symmetry through the middle, as if a true physical hourglass has been heated at the middle and slightly bent out of a straight line axis.

'Mira Variable' is a term used by astronomers to identify a class of binary star system's in which brightness varies by a factor of 100 times or more over a year period.


Dss issues this star image for target 'Mira'. It does not seem related to the Mira binary star system under study by Hubble and known as He2-104. Dss does not have 2nd gen blue or red scans for the 'Mira' target.

  dark object near large star Mira   Is there any chance this 'thing' in a 60x60 arminute 1st gen plate of Mira, is the second star suspected to be at large at Mira. What is the possibility this object (if it is not a plate flaw) is passing back and forth through Mira, triggering massive brightening eposides.

There seems to have been a hiccup in GIC record keeping. I have another image showing the same odd object, named Omicr-a1.jif and it is not known which name is correct. Both are correct. The fact is Dss dishes exactly the same plate for both names 'Omicron Ceti' and 'Mira'. This, I discovered, when discovering two different bookeeping names for two identical images from Dss.

Hubble resolving existence of a second star around Mira may help explain mysteries of the second star, and a mystery in a Dss 1st gen plate of Mira.

Firstly, Hubble astronomy engineers concur that Hubble shows an oblong (as in football shaped oval - see next image) comprising Mira, and a faint short tongue extending out to a second star's presumed location at the time the Hubble snapshot was taken.

  Hubble view of Mira class He2-104   The object has reflectivity around its edges, (see above small blue image) not your usual abrupt black and bright for a plate flaw, and has a bright oval center at one end, which might be the star, stretched out and disarrayed in quiescent state.

Is there enough mass in the object to exceed Mira's, but the mass is concentrated at only certain brief times. Further, the time period of Mira's brightnesses spans a year, indicating not a five day orbital, or even just a few hours, such as many binary star combos have. Thirdly, the second star at Mira has not been seen directly. Perhaps the reason why is it cannot be seen when in quescent state, if, in fact, the above long dark object shown in blue is a second star, and not a plate flaw.

There. Risky suggestions, oboy you bet.

The Dss 1st gen plate shows a spherical star, and is so unlike the Hubble image that I have wondered if they are the same star, and think perhaps not - that the Dss plate is a different star than that shown by Hubble. But, a staggeringly seeming out of place glaring item with ultra dark interior near Mira the giant star in the Dss plate is hard (very hard) (almost impossibe to ignore). It needs explanation, good or bad. The glarer could be written off in one second as nothing but a plate flaw, except the flaw has a tiny spot of glowing light in the center of the widest part of it.

Is there any chance this 'thing' in a 60x60 arminute 1st gen plate of Mira, (shown in blue above left) is the second star suspected to be at large at Mira. What is the possibility this object (if it is not a plate flaw) is passing back and forth through Mira, triggering massive brightening eposides.


This Hubble site was searched for the word 'resolv' which produced the above bright orange view as one of the found links.

Dark irregular splatch may be the second star at Mira? Just a quess, except, the splatch is so highly statistical with the co-incidence - that Mira has a companion star which so far has not been seen, - leads to the possibility that the star's gravity is obvious enough but its irregular elongated shape may preclude obvious brightness, or in particular a traditionally recogizable spherical round shape.

In fact it might be that many stars exist that are too irregular or shapeless to be physically bright, and too irregular in shape to be recognized when only looking for perfectly round.

There, risky suggestions have come back. Oboy you bet.

A another risky suggested possibility is that some stars are so irregular that at times they cannot even burn with true starlight and go dim, in a periodic state in which they are strung out and everthing but round. Think of clearing your throat and letting fly through the air, a long twacky tang oscillates as it flies, every so often gaining a round shape then loosing it again. Can stars be like that? So, a leading candidate, first offered, for a possible new class of stars, is 'Lucky Strike', the above shameless object in a Dss 1st gen planet, close to giant star Mira.


A glimpse of an edge of a large diffuse deep space oval near giant star Vega is seen in this Dss 1st gen (60x60) arcminute plate of Vega. The oval glimpsed, is not seen in the Dss black and white dark space original, but is seen when the original is enhanced by Histogram Equalize.

Note:- if you view the Vega original link immediately above, you will notice large dark dots around the Vega light ring halo. These are concidered planetoid objects in GIC and are examined in detail here. In other words, Vega may have a horde of planets, or, at least, sundry objects in splatter gun chaotic array and/or orbits around Vega.

That dark dot near the left edge of the giant oval, kind of blows the theory that such dark dots around giant stars are planets, planetoid objects, or disaffected gobs of star matter. The plus retrun to theory around giant stars is dark dots and gobules in coherent formations, in seeing that dark dot as one of many noticable intriguing sundry objects which may be orbiting Vega and this, inside the giant oval, may be but one of the many found around Vega itself.

For instance, as if in orbits on either side of giant stars, tidal trio groups (where three dark objects occur in a straight line out from a star), have been seen. Check out the Planets1.htm page.

The theory is particular enhanced when tidal trios are seen to occur in coherent groups on either side of a giant star, pretty much eliminating co-incidences and telescope plate error flaws. For instance, illuminated dark object coherencies are seen in broad daylight, so to speak, at giant star Betelgeuse.

Deep space large diffuse ovals of unknown origin are not uncommon. Several have been found in pouring through Dss sky survey black and white plates of nearby and long distance targets, and are investigated here.


Two dark holes, and a few plantoid small dots, in a Dss 1st gen plate of star Eta Virgini.

And so, the way it goes. I have the Dss images, so know the starname, but, from where. At this moment I cannot find any search result in more than one Engine (including for star 'Eta Virgini', or even just 'Virgini'. I cannot cite a reference that will give you more information about this star.


The Elephant's Trunk nebula is a pillar. It is also known as IC 1396. Source for another Elephant Trunk image.

For anyone who is interested, next is a quick-pick rogues gallery of Dss plates which show objects of sundry kind around large and giant stars. These are views which have not been included in GIC definative studies of planetary objects in Planets.htm,   Planets1.htm,   and oscillat.htm.

Two saddles in offshift positions at Spica
Two saddles in straight line tidal orbit at Denebola
Sundry objects within reach of star named Delboo
Anomalous object in damaged Dss 1st gen plate of R Mon
Objects in a dim 1st gen plate of Corona
Odd anomoly in 1st gen R Mon plate
Anomalous dark hole in Eta Virgini

Sundry dots of different sizes pepper space around 2 Tau - 1st gen
Small dots of different sizes pepper space around 2 Tau - 2nd gen (red)
Small dots of different sizes pepper space around 2 Tau - 2nd gen (blue)

It happened by chance working fast that the above 2 Tau Dss 2nd gen (red) is blue enhanced, and the (blue) is red enhanced. Should have been the other way around if keeping any sense of thematic logic.
