I could be wrong here, but this clearly seems to be multiple objects traveling...UPHILL.
Hopefully a few of the resident ATS experts will chime in on this find.

There are certainly 2 objects that seem to have moved, leaving track or trail behind them.
Good find !

Good find, Really seems like two objects moving uphill...


I can't wait to see MikeSingh's take on this.


Peace

Stupid question. How do you know that they didn't roll down hill? Couldn't something snowballing down a hill create the same patterns?

How do you know it's uphill ? Pictures are taken from above so it's hard to tell.

It is certainly uphill, here is a larger image of the area in question.

I am not so sure about the two "objects". The dark spots could be small craters/holes left in the ground after a couple of rocks or boulders which rolled downhill.

Anyway, this is the direct link to the full image:

With insane winds speeds during dust storms rocks may roll uphill. But there wouldn't be any tracks I guess. So... the general direction is probably downward.

Not a stupid question at all. We've seen many objects, most likely rocks, that have rolled down the sides of large "dunes" on mars. This location is UPHILL though, I posted a photo of the area in question.

But how can you be sure its uphill? There's nothing at the site indicating that the stones rolled uphill: what is clearly hills are next to the "rolling stones" and they obviously didnt went up them. The area indicated may just as well be sloping downwards in the direction the stones go.

I'm not sure I get the point here. For the sake of argument, let's say that what we're seeing here not just an illusion caused by odd shadowing or a stray dust devil trail or something, what's it supposed to imply?

Is it that somebody (or something) moved these rocks uphill for some reason? They didn't apparently leave any tracks. And why would they move them? Are they better in this position than in their previous position?

Or is the point that Mars is just such a freaky, unusual place that the ordinary laws of physics don't apply? Because most people will agree that's not the case. It's far away, but most people would agree that rocks still roll downhill there.

I'm not sure what the implication is supposed to be here.

You're looking in the wrong place. The rocks that rolled downhill to make the tracks are outside of your frame. Sorry the image is so bad, don't have my proper tools available.

you can not tell by either photo if its uphill.... there is a peak on the right side.. so it could be downhill ... were on earth.. there is no way of telling.. (grin)

Actually you can. The full image is of a crater, it's pretty obvious which way the slope runs. I'd show it, but like I said, don't have my tools. Maybe in a few hours if anyone's still interested.

No, for this one you need the full, multi-hundred MB JP2 image to see what's really going on, if it's not already obvious.

It´s downhill. Natural flow of sand ect.. look at dark lines sliding out from the top of the ridge and down.
