Thanks ArMaP for suggesting the three exclamation marks
But at least the title is correct...



New Approach...

Okay these are NOT rocks... and these are NOT dunes, so now that we have gotten past that... have a look at these and tell me what your logical explanation is... THEN I will tell you mine and THEN I will link you to where I found them in the next few posts. I have hundreds of them so be prepared
But I will start with just a few to see what we come up with.

To me they look like cactus shadows. But who knows, it's a whole other planet and NASA will only go there to stick their nose in the sand. Or ice. Or wherever they can get the least amount of data possible with the most amount of money

all I can think is either a.) some form of CGI (i guess?) or b.) I have noooo clue at all.

They are shadows...of shadows.















Now that I got that outta my system...they HAVE to be something, or why would NASA waste valuable and limited film on NOTHING? Good find Zorgon.

Now this was somehow mind blowing..!

Good and interesting find, really don't have any idea or even the smalles clue of what this might be.

Could be ice clouds, or maybe the moon Phobos?

Also, shadows cast in the winter solstice appear to be longer.

I`m not so sure that what you see are shadows.

There is a possibility that the pictures show some type of deposit,maybe by escaping contaminated liquid water,which rapidly sublimes,leaving deposit behind on the surface.

The darker areas are simply thicker/deeper areas of deposited material.

I've seen these photos before. My guess is some sort of plant life. The place seems to be full of rather large plant life.

Could you give us a link to the original picture, Zorgon? I dont trust your image cropping after the "Herd of animals on Mars" thread
...

Very nice find!!!

Interesting!

If these are shadows it´s either a) a very weird looking object or b) smoke plumes. Personally i get the feeling that it´s something "flowing" on the ground or some kind of erosion.

Indeed a link to the full pics would be helpful.

Although like I said before, it could be the moon Phobos passing during the winter solstice. And the shadows could just appear distorted due to Mars' surface or a reflection of something on it. And the length, again could be due to winter solstice.

They look almost like volcanic eruptions. At least the first one. You can see it raised as there is a shadow of the dark plume.

I too am clueless. Though the second one reminded me of a polar pic of one of the planets...wish I could retrieve which one.

Hey where is my star?


Anyway.... I have one question. If it is a shadow of a volcanic eruption, why does the base of the plume not meet up with the base of the shadow. They seem to be totally apart. I find that a bit odd. They are still mighty intriguing!

Wow... but again. The shadows seem to be all over the place. Why is that? Are they shadows? Could it be oil (!) as in fossil fuel be leaking out there?
