Over the past several months I've been attempting to convey my findings and information onto NASA as well as other associated NASA support staff, with limited results if not outright denials that everything I'm seeing is merely that of common rock and channel erosion, even though none others have been able to otherwise identify any other areas having anything even remotely similar...

Within my image files such as mgn-121.jpg and "guth-venus-180-A.jpg" I feel I have clearly identified structures that could be hundreds of millions of years old or perhaps that of a relatively current and thereby of a highly evolved nature... Yes I know it's hot on Venus, but not so hot underground and obviously much less hot at night as well as at elevations of 20,000+' or greater (night = 120+ earth days), so please don't start in with it's too hot for even evolved life to have ever existed yet survived...

In your review of these various Magellan images, in order to be most objective, it helps if you were to first, as I did, thoroughly review many other NASA Magellan images besides the "mgn_c115s095_1.gif"  from which I was able to produce this highly copped and resampled enlargement ()...  As you and most anyone including I and others can see, the raw Magellan images all clearly show the Venus surface as having extensive lava flow channels, secondary erosion channels and obvious large and small rock formations, plus something a bit out of the ordinary at the location which I later enlarged, and I have no problems with this...  However, when you utilize software such as even COREL Photo-Paint, and zoom-in so as to crop a relatively small portion (such as this area of interest) and then apply resizing so that this new cropped image area produces an 8 x 10 print at 72dpi you see all of the original details but also begin to see these original details without so much of the blockish elements as when limited to the original full scale format, this also permits the image file size to become more manageable, so much so that you may further reapply the resampling at even greater dpi (such as 216 dpi) without yet creating a massive image file.  Now, if you want a little more enhancement, try shifting your contrast or level equalization until you like what you see...  Unless you seriously over/under contrasted you will notice that none of your pixel modifications alters nor distorts the original information, as large and small rocks, lava flows and erosion channel details are essentially as they appeared at the full scale original format, just offering a bit closer view...  In order for anyone or me to prove there has been no distortion, simply reverse your steps, sampling to lessor and lessor pixel resolution until you are right back to where you started...

The focus area of my "guth-venus-180-A.jpg" image represents perhaps only 10% from the original NASA file (mgn_c115s095_1.gif)...  According to NASA's information this image offers a "surface emission angle (deg.): 43.4-37.1" which is quite good for relative perspective views of terrain, and according to NASA the best resolution of Magellan was ever delivering was 25 meters per pixel per their original image...   As you can see by several nearby rocks and erosion channels, this view angle is in fact well suited if you were looking for vertical/horizontal structures as well as anything potentially round or parabolic in nature...  Clearly in the guth-venus-180-A.jpg image are just such structural attributes of parallel and tangent lines at 90 deg. (intersections), plus substantial vertical structural elements just off to the right at the end of a channel or causeway, then just to the left of the primary intersection is a medium gray parabolic looking element set next to a large towering white (radar reflective) element apparently at the intersection or overpass of the secondary channel, and just below this towering element is a "U" shaped item featuring a central outflow or platform having no erosion continuation...  A bit harder to make out are what could be considered multiple suspensions bridging this erosion or fabricated channel that flows under the intersection, and there also appears to be a large round opening along the primary horizontal lava flow channel feeding this secondary channel which again is apparently flowing under a suspended intersection.  A bit harder yet to detail is what seems highly unlikely as any natural formation, this is a platform structured area located directly above the large rectangular/vertical structural elements, this platform is adjoining but otherwise lying just below the primary horizontal lava flow channel...

Now, if I were employed as a surveillance image technician for my government, and if I were looking at distant spy photos possibly taken through a foggy day, I would have to say we've clearly identified some form of a runway, obviously a large intentional platform having two or three recessed (underground access) service bays, plus other associated buildings or storage facilities nearly like most any Earth based infrastructure...  I've seen worse spy photos taken on Earth which were apparently sufficient for our military requirements.

In relation to other NASA image files of Venus, this area simply looks highly suspicious if not outright intriguing, yet NASA seems either preoccupied and/or intentionally avoiding any recognition of such, and their negative statements, to me seem somehow out of step with their mission...  And only because of NASA's willful disregard have I therefore claimed the area covered by "guth-venus-180-A.jpg" as "GUTH Venus" and I would like to see this image and further comments carefully published under that title...

Please advise how I might better inform NASA or others as to my findings.
