Eye See You!

Looks a lot like Sauron, no?
"Using the latest techniques in space technology, astronomers at NASA and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory used direct-imaging techniques to capture pictures of four newly discovered planets orbiting stars outside our solar system..."

...The discovery of the HR 8799 system is a crucial step on the road to the ultimate detection of another Earth," he said... "

"NASA's newly discovered planet, Fomalhaut b, is estimated to be roughly three times Jupiter's mass and 10.7 billion miles from its host star, Fomalhaut. NASA's images show Fomalhaut b orbiting the bright southern star Fomalhaut, which is said to be 16 times brighter than our sun and 25 light years away in the constellation Piscis Australis (Southern Fish)."- CNN

8+7+9+9=33, of course. 10+7=17. Then there's also a 3/17 there as well. Oh, Nazca NASA and those wacky Masonic numbers. "Fomalhaut" is Arabic for "Mouth of the Whale."

Check out Koncrete Junkyard for a look at an anomalous structure on Saturn.

UPDATE: India landed a probe, the Chandrayaan 1, on the Moon today. Note that the X-ray telescope at MIT is also named in honor of the Indian moon goddess.

UPDATE II: Oh God, please forgive me, but H=8 and R=18 and 8+1+8=17. So if I was one of them secret code type of guys, I might think "HR 8799" might be a cipher for 1733 or something. Good thing we know that no one ever uses secret codes for anything.
