Hello all


Im sure most of you are aware of the site known as marsanomalyresearch.com, I try to check on its updates every few weeks as there is usually some pretty weird, natural and unexplained anomalies posted.

The most recent post was labeled Report #135 on February 22, 2008:
Report #135

Here are the 2 images I find most interesting:









The "coin" seems to have been there a while, perhaps ruling out that this object fell from the rover?

Check out the link above for the complete 135 report

EDIT: Here is the link to the source image from NASA
marsrover.jpl

Enjoy

While I would not go with a metronome on the rocks..the coin like picture is interesting. I would say a coin shaped object, not an actual coin.

Before I would acknowledge it is something fallen off the rover, I would like to see proof that the rover has something on it shaped like that, and what's function would be. I don't know of anything that can naturally shape a rock like that in isolation.

Interesting picture.

So thats where I dropped that double headed 25 cent piece! DOH!! haha.

Really great post olegkvasha
I have seen these photo's before but I forgot where the site was. Its interesting that these pictures were not "smudged" like most of the data that comes from the area.

I really don't think human kind would react as spastic as the powers that be think they would. Time for the truth if you ask me.

The coin could be a rounded river rock that was broken in half and settled with the flat side up.

It looks to be a bit oval and not perfectly round like most coins are.


The first pic is interesting, it looks somewhat similar to aircraft wreckage.

The lower left corner of the first pic shows a right angled piece that looks similar to the upper corner of a topless box.

Nice post, thanks . . . gave it a star.

Here's another weird picture from the same site.....its the same one found on the Malin space science systems site. pretty convincing to me even though the picture has been obviously tempered with to blur out the details.

Hi rich

Never seen these ones before: have star & flag from me.
The first one is Spirit Panoramic Camera :: Sol 1402




Sol 1402: Spirit acquired a pre-drive image of a pointy rock known as
"General B.O. Davis" before backing up 2.5 meters (8.2 feet) and
turning 180 degrees. The rover acquired post-drive images using the
hazard avoidance cameras and a mosaic of images using the navigation
camera. The following morning, Spirit monitored dust on the panoramic
camera mast assembly and completed a systematic ground survey and a
survey of rock clasts with the panoramic camera.

www.marstoday.com...

and the object in question is visible in the following images:

marsrover.nasa.gov...

There's also a color image available for Sol 1402,
HERE :



The second one is Spirit Panoramic Camera :: Sol 1220




Sol 1220: Spirit acquired full-color images of the work area reachable
by the robotic arm using all 13 filters of the panoramic camera and
watched for morning dust devils. The rover also acquired full-color
images using all 13 filters of the panoramic camera of targets known as
"Melba Alspaugh," "Helen St. Aubin," and "Ruth Lessing." The rover
acquired data using the miniature thermal emission spectrometer from
targets known as "Melba Alspaugh2," "Betty Whiting2," "Joan Chiancola,"
and "Helen St. Aubin2." Spirit watched for dust devils, surveyed a
target called "Jean Gilchrist" with the miniature thermal emission
spectrometer, and completed an overnight transfer of data to the
Odyssey spacecraft.

and the object in question is visible in all the images that you'll
find in the first group, here:

There are also two color images available for Sol 1220:

Cool finds.....very interesting.

That first picture not only appears to have a "hollow" object, but right in front of it is some kind of "prong" object? The shadows and lighting appear to be a bit stark in that image, would like to see one with more natural illumination.

The "coin" in the second image is startling in its regularity. Someone suggested a river rock? How would a river rock get mixed into that type of geological formation? If it's simply a river rock, that would be anomalous itself. I wonder if it's the remains of some kind of small "core"? Like a volcanic tube of some sort?

As a geologist I can tell you that that "coin" is the most facinating Mars picture I have ever seen. There is nothing natural like that on Earth.

Would you be so kind as to give some backup to your claim of being a geologist? Enough so that we have some idea of the relevant scientific training that you have to judge such things.

Thank You.

I agree with NGC2736. No disrespect to you earthman but a little bit of background information would be nice.
Having a geologist on these forums however would be a great help in analysing images like these

Wouldn't it be enough that Earthman4 could make statements and others that are either conversant in the field or a geologist themselves could judge his remarks?

If a person is going to lie about something I'm pretty sure they would lie about their educational background as well.


I'm an ex power company employee and respond with some information on high voltage equipment and so far no one has requested my credentials.

Not trying to start an argument, but it did seem like a rather strange request.

Strange but something I personally would like to see more of here on ATS.

We ask for proof of others claims I don't see any difference regarding peoples professional background if they want to state it in the first place.

These proofs can be easily presented to a mod or administrator for verification so there is no need for general exposure.

By the way nice find olegkvasha.
