Thanks for looking though........

Hi there, (OP)


Recently, we saw the Martian Bigfoot and the "door", now the Castles, what's next ?

Martian Mickey Mouse ?



Peace,

When Spikedmilk asked me what was my take about some of these pics, i've said that one of them recalled me vaguely the "castle" on the Moon:

So if you feel the need to attack someone for having chosen that name,
feel free to attack me.

But maybe is better to choose one of the following options:
a) Comment the images.
b) Do not post at all.
Peace,
Internos

Gang... I will post sans sarcasm. I see nothing that resembles that which you are referring to. I see variations in the martian landscape due to normal geologic formations and shadows. The world is going to need much clearer photos with highly defined shapes in order to ever accept such outlandish theories. Got any?

The posting of such pictures is against the T&C

Saw a couple of your interpretations and, unfortunately was not very impressed. I did discern some, but not all. I would definitely ask all to keep looking, as sooner or later one of you rock hounds will find the payday we're (even the skeptics, or even they wouldn't be on this site) all searching for. One of the things I found amazing was the obvious shorelines. As others have said before, I'm no reader of such, but it does look as though the water just "dissappeared". Yeah?

Sorry, but i don't need you to know what is pareidolia, and by the way don't you have a better source than wikipedia or was it just to make me laugh?

Anyway, you made exactly my point: if you think that there's nothing to comment, why do you post anyway? Mmmhhh?

Peace,
Internos

As May be noted, I have done some housecleaning on this thread.

I suggest that comments and pictures have something of value to add to this thread. Juvenile posts do not further the thread.

I'll allow mild sarcasm, but there are limits there.

Folks, let's post with civility in mind and stay on topic.

Alright, I have been messing around trying to draw lines on this thing, and I just am not satisified. So I thought I would circle what I felt in my opinion, were the most prominent features on this 'thing'.
The red circles are for the round features. I didnt bother with ones closest to the ground...no explanation necessary I'm sure. The green circles are for the features that were straight in appearance. At the most western end notice the conical shape, highlighted by the dark purple, and where the object is meeting the surface/ground, highlighted in light purple.
"Clean" version on the bottom for comparison.

Hi there,

You got to be kidding me...

Since when is it improper to post pictures of animals ?
The exemple I used with the dog's butt was really good. If only you saw pornographic material I could understand but a dog !!!


You got me
for a while with this one.

Peace,
Europa

So, maybe for the time being we'll move on and return to the 'castle' later. For now I bring to your attention a couple of square edges protruding out of the Martian ground from the area I dubbed the 'northshore'. Remember, I mentioned this area looked like one big dried up river bed.....

These just cant be dismissed as rocks and shadows can they?

I'm sorry, but until we get crystal clear images i can probably make out my dog's name on the surface somewhere if i squint good, i'm sorry to be negative but that's the way i feel about it.

And from the 'southern' shoreline, we have the sand castle. Raw image on top, enhanced for comparison on the bottom........Its just a name folks.

That last one looks good.

Maybe some one else can make an opinion of it.

It took me some time to see the areas you marked in the original photo. One of the reasons was that I did not knew if you had used the map-projected or the non map-projected version.

As you call "Southern shoreline" to a feature that is to the North, I suppose you used the non map-projected image.

In that image the Sun light is coming from the bottom right corner of the image (50.62° clockwise from a line drawn from the centre to the right edge of the image to the direction of the sun at the time the image was acquired), and that may help distinguish a mesa from a ravine.

Your first image, for example shows a mesa, the "fallen castle" being on one of the mesa's sides.

I downloaded the original, non map-projected IMG file, opened it in The Gimp (version 2.2.16 has a plug-in to open those IMG files), applied the "Destripe" filter and changed the levels. After that I resized to 300%.

This is the result.



To me, the "fallen castle" looks just like common vertical ridges on a slope (I hope you understand what I want to say, sometimes I can not find the right words).

Here it is, rotated and resized to 200% from the previous image.


The "terrace" looks like anything, really, I don't see anything out of ordinary here.


The "archway" looks like the shadow of the higher rocks.


The "sand castle" does not look that strange in a picture with more shades of grey.


The "shoreline" does not look that strange if you are accustomed to higher definition images from Mars.


In this image I don't know what it is that you call "the entrance". Is it that dark area? That is the shadow of the side of that small crater.


In the last image I don't see anything unusual.


I would like to ask one thing: why do almost all your images have such a low colour count? There is one (the one with the "sand castle", that has only 14 shades of grey! How do you suppose to see anything in an image like that, that has lost most of its data?
