Back before we had 24 hour TV this was the BBC colour test card, which was broadcast during the day!!

There are more but it was cold and wet today so I will keep my eye out for others.

Us real men watched the 1953 Coronation on 405 line B/W TV, and listened to radio Luxembourg on 208.

our job is getting to know the neighbours, so we don't repeat the colonial errors of our forefathers.

It was -6 when I went out to start the car this morning, "warmed up" to -5 as I set off along the road, dropped to -7 "mid flight", then rose to a balmy -3 as I drove onto the snow packed car park at work.

Was that British F, or (in)continent C?

Whatever, pretty damn cold!!

Will NASA agree?

Analysis - Trump thinks "I'm desperate to keep the day job, but I'm on my way out unless I come up with something. I know, I'll copy JFK, worked for him. Er um, didn't he get assassinated anyway?"

If it is manned or under any control, then a sling shot trajectory is likely. It could have been sent to take a quick snapshot of our system with no intention of responding to us. If later when out of earshot it signals home, they may come back later for a closer look. But apparently it is not in an elliptical orbit, it is a parabola or a hyperbola, which means it will not return naturally to where it came from*

The focus on this object from earth is from 2 camps. The ET searchers who want to believe the above, and the astronomers who just want to know more about an odd chunk of rock from outer space not seen before.

I'm with the astronomers, all seems more logical to me.

* Lets start a new conspiracy theory - It is an ET probe, and they have deliberately put it in an orbital path that won't give away where it came from. When far enough away from the Solar system, they'll realign it for home. Pass it on to all your friends :-))

GBT looking
