« Kryptonite Found In Serbia! | Main | Dr. Tim's 3D House of Space! »

April 26, 2007


Tim J.

As long as they're not teenage mutant ninjas.

If they're just big alien turtles, they should be easy to defeat... just flip 'em over on their backs.


Reminds me of that big sci-fi film "Turtle Recall".

Mike Melendez

I just happen to have a set of clip-on red-green 3D glasses as I frequent the APOD site. Would you like to borrow them?

Andy L

Actually,it sort of reminds me of Patrick McGoohan's face whenever he was run down by a Rover while trying to escape on the old BBC series "The Prisoner."


YAY GAMERA!!!! He's the best!!!!

Ed Peters

It's a face? To me, it looked like an overhead shot of a sort of plateau with three, maybe four small mountains on it.

A face, huh. I have no imagination.

Brian Day

It's the mask that depicts Loki, the Norse night god of mischief.
The Mask

When I fuzz my vision, it looks like the face on the Shroud of Turin to me.

Eileen R

Ah, Great A'Tuin, the Star Turtle with four elephants on its back supporting the world.

Fr. Stephanos, O.S.B.

First Tim blogs about his SPEEDO

Then Jimmy about KRYPTONITE, MARS, and a TURTLE

Let’s see . . . .

SPEEDO . . . .


MARS . . . .

TURTLE . . . .

We’ve got the makings of:
“Martian SuperTurtle in Tights”

Ed Peters,

You need to look at clouds more.


It looks like my mother-in-law!

Smoky Mountain MSTT

Fr. Stephanos,

Can I play Raphael in your new series?


And it does look like a face to me.

But not a human one. To tell you the truth, it looks like the face of a pet turtle I used to have when I was a boy.

Anyone remember a show called "Land of the Lost"?

Given the speculations above, would this pass off for the face of a 'sleestak' (sp?)?

Ed Peters

But Smokey, I DOOOO look at clouds. But all I ever see is....well, clouds.

Stephen Korsman

I think this may point to the underlying truth of the TV series "V" - that aliens are reptilian in nature.


I thought turtles were amphibians.



Looks a bit like Kermit the Frog to me.

(Yes, I have been watching way too much Sesame Street lately!)

In Jesu et Maria,


"You're a bad space woman!"

Here's a picture of a turtle from heaven:


Stephen is right, the Ninja Turtles notwithstanding. Turtles are reptiles, not amphibians. They have scaly skin, claws, and do not pass through an aquatic larval stage. Amphibians have smooth skin, no claws, a larval stage, and some breathe through their skins.

Ever since the Ninja Turtles writers screwed things up, it's been a common mistake.
