Not normally a big believer in Mars anomalies, but I thought this was weird enough to post. I saw a similar thread but with what seems to be a
different object, so apologies if this is a repost. Enjoy!
"A new UFO on Mars has been sighted in NASA images compiled by Google — and easily accessible to anyone using the Google Earth app, in its “Google
Mars” setting. Whatever this strange disc-shaped structure that appears to be “parked” on the Martian surface turns out to be, one thing is for
sure. The object is enormous. Using the Google Mars “ruler” tool, the circular object is shown to measure 3.52 miles across."
Here is how to find it for yourself: "You don’t have to be a full-time UFO hunter to locate this weird anomaly. Download the Google Earth app to
your mobile device, or to your personal computer. The computer app can be found at this link. Once Google Earth is installed and set up, go to the
“planet” icon on the toolbar directly above the main image screen. Select “Mars” from the drop-down menu. Once you are in Google Mars, enter
the following coordinates: 79°52’20.16″N 166°55’34.16″W."
Sorry I couldn't upload the pics, interweb giving me grief today, lol!

The coordinates don't work, for me at least - surprise, surprise.
However, I think people read too much into smudges and fuzziness, which could be caused by numerous reasons, including difficulties in stitching
multiple satellite images together. It's round, so it's a UFO.
People see what they want to see. I see people wanting to write on websites.

It looks like a crater filled with ice, at least on
this photo from the CTX camera
aboard Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
Yes it does, I was just looking at it on Google Mars and there is a close-up B/W picture of the rolling dunes all around that area. I didn't think
about ice though, since the colour filters only serve to make the picture ambiguous.
Find the original image. Google earth/mars/whatever images are of no use whatsoever, as Google's stitching algorithms introduce all manner of odd
looking artifacts. Find the source of the image, and if the "anomaly" is still present, then there will be something to discuss....
Boy, that's really a big hunk of ice, isn't it? That in itself is fairly cool, no?
Yes. Planetary science is hella interesting on its own. I really wish people would consider that instead of just looking for stuff they don't
understand and saying "i don't understand it, therefore ALIENZ!".
Learning about the stuff you don't understand is fascinating.
