Puzzling feature on Mars!

Now what do you think this could be? Without a doubt, the structure looks artificial.

puzzling feature on the surface of Mars that can be seen in Mariner 9 frame 4209-75 (pictured below). It is also located in the equatorial area (at longitude 186.4) and has been described as "unusual indentations with radial arms protruding from a central hub" caused (according to NASA scientists) by the melting and collapse of permafrost layers.

The design of the features, bringing to mind the structure of a modern airport with a circular hub from which the long structures housing the airplane gates radiate, can be better visualized when the photograph is reversed.

As usual, NASA has given a simple explanation for this 'structure'. Every oddity anywhere in the universe has the usual explanations - natural formations, permafrost, etc, etc. Can't these guys ever think out of the box?

just wondering why the picture is so blurry, most of the pics i've seen on mars are usually a lot more clear and all. just my thoughts

Probably blurring because the probe that took the photo was mving a high speeds.

Anyway it looks like a man riding a horse to me
But it also looks like some kind of building...

There are diffinate defind shadows and a hole in the center for the stucture.

We'd have to know the scale also...the structure could be MILES long, which would certainly rule out your alien airport idea..

Wonder if it's maybe the rocky remains of a coral atoll, back when water flowed on Mars? It certainly seems like an ideal place for a probe to take some samples, at the very least....
