Mysterious plumes over 150 miles high have been recorded erupting on Mars by amateur astronomers – and the strange discovery has scientists stumped. The bright flares have now died away, but they were spotted on two occasions – lasting for 10 days each time – by amateur astronomers in 2012. The dusty plumes were seen rising to altitudes of 155 miles (250km) and spread out over a region measuring 300-600 miles wide.

My guess? Water vapor being forced out of deep fissures. Deep undiscovered magma mixed with a frozen subterranean ocean.
If that's right, and most likely it is not,
-that would be the place to search for life.

My guess would be that it's one of the 12 mile tall dust devils on Mars .






Because I seriously doubt if we know all the characteristics of dust Devils on Mars .

Yes , was it the movie Mission to Mars where they had the Martian "dust devils" ? Ginormous (spell checker didn't pick that up and it truly is a word) tornadoes .

150 mile high dust devils would be amazing

I don't know the height of the thin martian atmosphere, so couldn't say how high a wind vortex would function.

Although your term ginormous pasted mustard .


The word tornado did not. Because there is not enough atmosphere on Mars to create tornadoes .

And the reference you ask for was space.com .

The word tornado was figurative , not literal.

Not only on here , But in "real life" as well. Sometimes too honest for my own good.

How about just an overall general dust storm ?

Is it possible for these dust storms on Mars to get that high up ?

Or it could be CO2 being released into the atmosphere by the giant electrical power stations...

I told those Martian aeons ago that CO2 and the atmosphere didnt work that way. They thought the planet would grow warmer , more plants would grow and the atmosphere would become more O2 rich. Turned out , as I predicted ,as the planet cooled the CO2 level rose blanking out the sun's rays , the atmosphere dissipated along with what little magnetic field they had left , and the Martians faded into the darkness.However , the power plants still function.

That kind of altitude seems excessive for any kind of weather pattern that we understand. Of course, it is Mars, and there is probably a great deal we do not understand. I would go with a gas release or a combined electrical (ionic) and gaseous display.

Is this a Total Recall reference?

Mars atmosphere is about eleven kilometers high.
-My Uncle Pete actually runs a mayonnaise farm there, he told me.

eleven kilometers -true story.

- So whatever it is has to be blasting easily out of the atmosphere.

given Mars thinner atmosphere, perhaps another asteroid bites the dust.

Swamp gas of course. Nasa been right all along.

My first thoughts too. A fragmented asteroid causing a ruckus for the resident Martians.

Holy shat look at that ...

Could this be how Mars lost its atmosphere
