Having just finished going over the correlative art and fantastic structures on the Norgay Montes image, it's now time to focus on the even more marvelous
Hillary Montes area. We only thought we'd seen oddities in Norgay. Hillary contains more of these type of objects and the ones it has are highly recognizable
for the reason that their shapes are such as we have commonly found on other planets. This image is a bit clearer, taken from a bit closer and not nearly as
oblique as the former, yet still taken at a good eough tilt to show some perpective. We have tetrahedrons, pyramidals, a pentagonal, and a couple of arcologies
so huge and detailed they astound even my anomalistically jaded senses, but let me not get ahead of myself and bring us back to the image we'll be detailing

We'll use the annotated image below so you'll be able to note where the objects are, click image to see a much larger unannotated version
 

This is Hillary Montes, and you are looking at the most anomalous area I've ever seen on any planet; and that's saying something, because not many areas
have ever escaped my notice. For fun try going into the larger image and seeing if you can find the items that fit my descriptions in the previous paragraph,
you may find what I didn't. That's the beauty and simplicity of it all: as long as the data is readily available, anyone can learn to do this, any of you, and naturally
some will no doubt be good at it. Some may shrug and say " Keith, those are just mountains made out of ice" Yeah, I know; so was Superman's Fortress of Solitude.

But that's another story entirely, or is it? let's see- very broadly
Type II civilization, cataclysm, survivor arrives, raised by/helps earthlings

Yes, there are many aspects of this notion unexplored, but the vastity of the subject matter requires me to first roll out the imagery.


The first set of items i'd like to show are these; a tight little grouping of incredible anomalies, like Cydonia but not nearly as beaten up
This area is #7 on the annotated image, and (going clockwise from the 10 o'clock position) contains a pentagonal shape like the D&M Pyramid
on Mars, a pair of pyramidions and an excellent tetrahedron (For what its worth, there is also a face nested into the left side of this last object)
This little part of the whole area is hugely complex with structural objects, replete with jumbled geometric features suggestive of arcological ruin.

Pluto's Boneyard #7



Marvel at the complexity here. The parent image's surface details not only lend themselves well to some remarkable science fiction art, but
within are features that match pretty well with arcological examples found throughout our exploration of the other planets, Mars in particular.
At left we have the infamous and still unphotographed by MRO (ahem!) D&M Pyramid, at right a discovery of mine- The Candor Tetrahedron.


Here at bottom is artwork of a proposed arcology to be built in Dubai, not tetrahedral, but it conveys the message nicely, and another proposed for New Orleans

You're probably beginning to see about now why I've stated that Pluto is the undisputed king of anomaly. Before we're
 done here I want to make sure you'll agree with me on this being the most anomalous area you've ever seen as well.
Sagan told us that if it was there we'd find it through the geometry; well, there we have it and there's still more to come

If we scroll down the annotated parent image a bit from the location we've been looking at to #8, the shape is repeated again.
This item is yet another tetrahedron. In the parent image there are no less than 5 within a 300 sq. mile area. I am promptly self
reminded that it previously took me looking through literally thousands of planetary images before I had ever found more than a handful .
I now humoruosly wonder if one counts the tetrahedrons within this given planetary region, could they then estimate the age of that area?


Now I'd like to bring us to down to the crux of the matter, the lynch pin, the brass monkey, the elephants within the room; a pair of arcologies so large, so
well preserved as to be almost undeniable are revealing the whole story for us about what they may actually be, and in a state to let us see right down into them.

These can be found on the annotated image at #9



What we apparently have here is a huge open top dome complex, with the one on the right being very similar to Pluto's Boneyard image #3, and the one on the left
being very alike in shape to the Face at Cydonia, but more relevantly; its a dead ringer for a one-off feature found on Ceres, and another well known structure found on
our moon. Yes, I said "our" moon, and the kicker is this: we've actually visited it. I've gone over that quite well in my featured article
"A Hidden Mission for Apollo 17?"

The open tops of these magnificent massifs allow us to see what's within, and I say we are truly looking into the heart of the beasts here. Notice the regular 
 angular geometry inside both, notice
the shield walls that surround them. Are these remnant of a total covering, as in image #4, or perhaps these might never
have had a physical covering of that type at all, but something else, perhaps a force field? Though we cannot say what technology an advanced civilization had, I'd
    venture its safer to say that the coverings that used to span the gaps are most likely fallen inside, and we are seeing them among the various other linear features within.

Notice that just to the right of the large angular lower massif there is yet another tetrahedron. The upper arcology is approx 15m x 8m, the lower is nearly 20m x 15m

This is the exact type of scene one would anticipate seeing given the parameters of the subject matter we're considering,
If there were in fact derelict arcologies on the surface of this and other worlds holding records of a past unknown we would most
assuredly expect them to look just as these do. They obviously look alike to how our science fiction artists would depict them also. 

Imagine standing out on the point of the lower arcology, eons ago, looking out across the upper arcology towards the horizon and seeing this

Almost like we've been there before

 I already told you we have been to at least one, and what if I showed you three of them on three different worlds?
 That is exactly what happened, and exactly what I'm showing here, The Moon, Pluto, and Ceres each have one of these

Now let us refer one last time to some more great science fiction art from the the incredible Steve Burg

Scenes such as these are remarkable. The topic itself is awe inspiring, the message; tantalizing- it goes somewhat like this-

Someone long ago built structures on the bodies in the solar system, most likely our own lost amnesiac little race. Something catastrophic happened, and we are just
 now once again reaching the technological level to where we can venture out far enough to see the majesty of what we once were, and realize the tragedy of what can
happen to even the most advanced civilizations. We're seeing these structures on other worlds, this should be impetus and inspiration plenty
for intensified exploration.

By doing so and with a little luck we may escape the same fate

Stay tuned.....
