Well, if you can’t make out much, have a look at the second image which I have annotated and marked certain anomalous structures. It looks like the ruins of an ancient civilization with a ‘temple’ on one side of a small city with what looks like the city’s water tank towards the top right. This depression is too regular in shape to be a crater.

This looks fascinating and I strongly believe that this is an ancient site of a civilization long gone. And also notice the resemblance of the ‘temple’ with the ancient temples here. Was there a Mars, Nimrod, and Marduk connection after all?

Come on now... let's wait for proof for at least the existence of one celled organisms before we advance any further into "civilization on Mars" theories.

The perspective views are computer generated using the stereo images taken from overhead, those images are not taken from that perspective.
I think that it probably is a result of inconsistent data on the borders of the image, a similar effect can be seen in other places on the borders of the image.

Where I see some blurry shadows, you see entire ancient civilizations?
It would be interesting if you were right; too bad you're not.
Anyway, the HiRise/Mars Reconnaisance Orbiter project will eventually chase a lot of the bunny rabbits and elephants out of these clouds.

Not a problem. Kent runs a pretty good site. He does get a bit carried away, now and then, though. Overall, Orbit's a great infodump.
Wow! Thanx Inca. I hadn't chanced on this website before! So I'm not alone!!
