Today we managed to get closer to the orb. Dressed in protective gear from head to toe like ridiculous astronauts we made our way up the hill until we stood right next to it. I'm not actually certain we need the suits, but I don't want to take any chances.

I can not properly describe the feeling of standing there... I, an educated man, who has never been at a loss for words, found myself totally speechless, unable to open my mouth for several minutes. Ivan felt the same, I know, and probably Catherine as well.

It took us almost two hours just to set up the equipment, do some initial visual observations, arrange the sensors and begin data collecting. The surface seems impenetrable and if I should touch it I know it would be cold. I don't know why.. I just know.

After performing some initial scans of the surface I found to my great surprise that our database found a match almost immediately. There were no specifics, but still, a match of some sort. To begin with I was almost a bit disappointed as I had expected something as utterly fantastic as this to be totally alien, but then I started thinking. Somewhere deep in the database there must be a similar record, perhaps someone, long ago, found something like this before. I must get on the uplink and check the colony database as soon as I get back to the camp.

The day just flew by. Suddenly I looked at my clock and it was already late in the afternoon. I feel just like a hopeful, impatient child on Christmas... It was a long time since I felt that way.

I was right!

The sky opened up this morning and the rain was so severe that we reluctantly decided to postpone our studies until tomorrow. Instead I sat all day in my lab digging through tons of data from the colony database. Initially it seemed like a hopeless project, I didn't even know where to start looking. I could feel myself getting that frustrated feeling again, even though Catherine always tells me I have to stop being so impatient. The slow data link did nothing to help.

But then I found it. Finally! Several years ago a professor Jensen went deep into the western Eudoria wastelands and sent back strange, confused, disconnected reports of a huge black object. Jensen himself disappeared, but all of his reports are here, a sadly forgotten treasure chest of data and observations. I can try to have the computers clean it up, but it will take some time to make any real sense of it.

But still. There must be a connection... There just must be.
