If there will ever be a picture from Mars that is in any way groundbreaking, you wont need yellow lines and red circles to see something is out of the ordinary.
Pretty much agree with this - with one caveat.
In the same way that ET believers will bend over backwards to argue that there is life on Mars, ET non-believers will go out of their way to argue that there isn't.
This photo looks so much like a snake (caught fleeing upwards into some rocks) that it is actually difficult to believe it isn't one.
It is certainly very hard to explain how such a free-standing formation could have arisen by erosion alone, and even more so to explain why that erosion didn't affect any of the rocks surrounding it. But that is what is being argued by the people who insist Mars is dead.
In this particular instance, I think the 'conspiracy theorists' are right, and the scientists are wrong. But the interesting subtext to this is the fact that it shows there is no conspiracy necessary to cover up the existence of alien life. Such a cover-up would happen almost naturally, because the professionals are instinctively blind to anything that threatens their own theories.

Those are cool but still highly debatable. I'm waiting for the head of a statue or one of those "manhole cover" things right up close.
You and a lot of other people scouring over the images. Good luck. I never found any.
I originally thought the Mars rovers were a hoax running around the desert in Arizona. This is because there were coins, bones, an obvious animal skull and other things showing up in the Mars rover photos. I thought it was all a psy op. But there are no Aztec style carved heads in North America, especially none based on faces that look like they are white, and because one was photographed by a rover I changed my mind - the rovers really are on Mars
