Free 3 month upgrade to the first person who can correctly answer all of this... *Congrats Dr. Acula!*
Astronomy contest time! I will give a free month upgrade to the first person who can correctly answer both parts of this question. What is this AND what specifically is causing it (I'm looking for a proper name here):
[link to farm9.staticflickr.com]
This photograph was taken on March 13, 1955.

It may not seem like this is enough information to answer the questions, but to a resourceful GLP'er there is already more than enough info here to figure it out. The date might seem like a distractor once you have the correct answer, but I put it out there to help you narrow down the possible sources. Have fun. If no one figures out the answer by tomorrow, I'll give a clue on how to find the answer. I was a bit sloppy in putting this together though, so I may have left a bread crum for those who are particularly clever.


*Added Bonus: I will upgrade you for 3 months if you can identify the exact film plate that this image comes from. Yes, if you do it right it is possible to be specific about that, and it should be part of the solution if you find it without just guessing at it. If however the original question I asked is answered first without this bonus part, this bonus is null and void.

*Half the answer has been found, and a big hint given to the rest on page 8. Answer both the original question and bonus question for a 3 month upgrade.

The first ever radio image of space taken from Sydney Au.
THINK ABOUT THIS!

The universe created life to be observed, without an observer, it never existed. So it is a mathematical proof that the universe created life.

First of all, it is an image from a radio telescope.

That's is all I can determine at this point. Please confirm.

Hmm, I may have to think about only responding to correct answers as I don't want you to start making guesses based on a process of elimination... you're completely wrong though.

We are seeing the reflection of the apparatus of a reflective telescope. The focal point is not aligned properly.

I would say it's defecation rings used to check telescope optics.

Looks like a cracked optic I would guess.

Use about 200 power, point it at a star and go out of focus until
You get the ring.

I agree that it looks like a reflection of the telescope itself
GET SAVED: Thread: Are you SAVED from DAMNATION?

"For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another." -- Galatians 5:14-26

People often mistake these type of images as UFO's. I think this can happen in video as well.
