Orbiter Camera (MOC) captured this unique view of a
bright, heart-shaped mesa in the south polar region on
November 26, 1999. This feature is located in the
Promethei Rupes region near 79.6°S, 298.3°W. Sunlight
illuminates the scene from the lower left. The heart is
about 255 meters (279 yards) across. The presence of this
mesa indicates that the darker, rough terrain that
surrounds it was once covered by a layer of the bright

PUERTO RICO'S MYSTERY MUMMY
The body of a strange being--allegedly not native to this
world--is being hidden from the Federal government's eyes
somewhere in Puerto Rico.
A Puerto Rican ufologist, Jorge Martin published photos
of what looks like an alien. These photos were in the
winter issue of "Evidencia Ovni" magazne. These
photos have existed since the 1980's.
The story goes that a cattle rancher in
the northern part of Puerto Rico, alarmed at the high
number of cattle being mutilated decided enough was
enough. He and two others, armed with 30-30 rifles, hid
one night determined to capture whoever was mutilating
One evening, from beyond a nearby mountain stream, four
small, strange creatures walked into his stable and came
out with a small cow. They say the cow was floating above
the ground, and above the creatures. The rancher and his
crew fired at the group, hitting one of them.
The creature fell to the ground as did the cow. The three
remaining creatures tried to retrieve the wounded one,
which was trying to get to its' feet. The rancher and his
friends fired another round of bullets at the creatures,
who ran off into the night, leaving their comrade behind.
The men ran up to the creature, one of them delivering a
crushing blow to the creature's head with a piece of wood,
This creature has been in and out of freezers for the
past decade. The rancher did allow his relatives to
photograph it. The rancher has refused to step forward or
to allow any authority to examine it due to fears of
cover ups, or any other action that may be taken against
him to do so.
