Sun like 'stone' on mars

If you look directly down and to the right of the anomaly, you can see a trapezoidal shaped rock that looks as if it fell away from the rock outcropping. There is an indention that matches the anomaly in the spot where it should be if the rock did in fact fall away as I stated. I hypothesize that the "sun-like" rock is a fossil of a starfish-like creature. So I guess I'm with the "it's a rock" crowd... a very interesting rock.

I know it's most likely a shadow but the dark area behind it looks like some kind of opening.

Funny, my first thought was of a black backwash and than carved the symbol through the paint into the rock for a higher contrast.

Wouldn't that be something?

Normally, I wuldn't respond to such threads but I'm going to make an exception this time..because..I've had enough.

For years, we've had people posting pictures of rocks that could resemble almost anything if you stared at it long enough. "Hey guys! Is this a severed finger on mars?" or "hey guys! I found a primitive vase in the mars rover pictures!"

It's BS.

There's nothing on mars exept for rocks that have been eroded in an infinite and random fashion by the weather.

That's not to say mars is not interesting. We know that it has probably and still might be home to basic life in bacteria and such, but nothing advanced enough to make anything of this nature. Move along, there's nothing to see here...unless you came to look at rocks.



NASA should just hire you to close the program and save billions then. Oh and your avatar is a picture is of a fake guy a bunch of people made up long ago.

[sigh] Once again, I observe that some folks don't have the ability to see what they are looking at.

One thing we should cover, is that mineral deposits can take on some extraordinary shapes. In Yellowstone, there are many examples of water and minerals exuding from orifices in a volcanic landscape, especially geysers. They exhibit many tendril like formations like this:




Water, minerals and metals can also produce incredible structure.

This is a deposit of Native Silver with Acanthite from the Freiberg district deposits in Germany.




While the chemistry is a lot different in Mars geology and atmosphere, the mechanism to form such structures cannot be discounted, as we know so little of what lies underneath the Mars surface.

Have you been to mars or do you just blindly believe everything you are told by mainstream science? I've seen many things that are out of place on Mars from NASA's own pictures so I have no choice but to keep an open mind. On the other hand there's you who can factually state that there's nothing worth looking into other than natural phenomenon. You stated this as fact as if you have been there yourself.

Honestly, it looks like a cave that is blocked off by some strange looking stone/rock/boulder/whatever? That was my first take when first glancing at it.....

Looks more like a big multi legged spider ish thing coming out of a rectangular shaped hole...

No idea what it is but its odd looking...Fossil?

There's also like a crescent of eyeballs to it left...

Obviously its not eyeballs but that is what it looks like, one of the most weird pics from Mars, a lot better than 2 rocks and "its a dinosaur" type threads. At least you can see the weirdness in it and not have to have someone highlight it with a pen, if you have to highlight it then its not very recognisable in the first place and sort of becomes an instant 'fail' if you will..

Pretty sure its rocks or the like but at least its properly odd looking..

a reply to: ypperst My monitor is a 50" plasma. The color of the item in question are different then the surrounding material. I have no idea what that is, but it looks pretty out of place to me. It almost looks like some type of lion creature in front, with a smile on its face, and a man with a white helmet standing behind it. On the wall above and to the left, there is a strange marking ( natural or not), of an upside down wishbone, with a table like top

Well this is kind of weird, but I've been looking through the other pictures in that set and whatever that is does not appear to be there in some of the pictures. Here is the full series. The relevant images start at this date and time: 2014-08-05 13:25:25 UTC.

In this picture the tentacled hell beast, as I have taken to calling it, is visible.(This is the full size image from the OP)
image

In this picture, if you zoom in, said tentacled hell beast does not appear to be in the image. On the left of the image, you can make out the same location and there are no tentacle like protrusions.
image

Here they are zoomed in, first pic is the main image, second is the bottom right portion.


So, weird shadows? Tentacled hellspawn? Martian sunflower? Spacefaring spider crab? You decide.

***Insert Giorgio not saying it's aliens pic here***

I can kind of see the round spot in the lower-right picture as well.

What is funny is that people keep posting pictures of human-like structures... but I think once we find proof of life somewhere else, it will look like this. For all we know this can be a simple statue of a multi-armed and legged entity that used to live there. : )

We keep looking for things we are familiar with, when in reality, that's probably exactly what we shouldn't be looking for.

p.s. I do think that is a rock as well, just a weird formation on the face of a larger rock.

I actualy think it’s a pretty cool find. I’m always super skeptical of Mars “rocks”, but this one is actually interesting. I’m suprised to see so many naysayers jump in so quickly.. Is that just what ATS has become? I seem to notice a lot of trolling and many, many Junior Scientists, as well as everyone being an “expert” at everything nowadays?

This rock just doesn’t ring the “standard erosion” bell for me, like so many others.

ATS needs to go back to common sense ideas.. Everyone is a little too “smart” for everyone else these days.. So smart, that everyone else is “dumb”.. Getting a little rediculous I must say. Kind of sad, considering I waiting like 7 or 8 years of coming here to finally join.

Maybe you should bring your squeals to the Rant forum if a thread like this offends you so much.

Telling from the stars and flags some of us find it rather intriguing to investigate and speculate on matters that frankly, nobody here knows the answers to. And if you claim that you do have the definitive answer with no supporting evidence other then your own bias, don't expect people to take you seriously.

Back to the topic at and, it does look incredibly out of place. Almost like a fossil or some sort of fungi? Never seen anything like this before in a Mars photo, definitely strange.

Good catch OP

I usually cringe at even the thought of another 'Mars Rock Anomaly' thread.

But, honestly... WHAT THE HELL IS THAT THING!!?!??!!

Sorry I'm on my iPhone, and every time I go to use the embed video button, it just closes out my web browser. Ugh whatever. But the link is to a recent Coast To Coast AM broadcast featuring Dr. John Brandenburg, and his work regarding an ancient nuclear catastrophe (deliberate at that), that may have taken place on Mars millions of years ago, perhaps before dinosaurs roamed the Earth. I have to admit, the evidence he presents is just STAGGERING. My mind was blown. I already believed in this possibility, but this really puts it all into a true scientific perspective.
His stance on this whole issue is that a civilization existed on Mars that was probably about as advanced as the ancient Egyptian culture here on Earth (interesting considering the whole pyramid connection), and that a much more advanced, and clearly malicious species, stumbled upon them, and for some reason, used what appeared to be "two hydrogen type nuclear weapons about the size of the Empire State Building" to literally eliminate the Martians from existence.
Imagine that, a bomb, physically equivalent to the Empire State Building in structure. Think about how large the Fatman atomic bomb was (128 inches by 68 inches), and what it did.

Now drop a nuclear weapon the size of a skyscraper just anywhere on the globe...

Rock or not , it is far from "ordinary" as some have claimed (I seriously question people's perceptions as to what they consider ordinary) .

If I found that rock, it would definitely wind up in a collection of "weird stuff I found". By far one of the neatest looking formations to date.

Unlike most of the others, I see what you are seeing. It looks like its not natural. Nothing to drag the nay sayers out of bed like a mars pic with a questionable object. It looks exactly as you said, like the sun symbol.
