Hopefully this image will make it.

Anyway this is a vertical flip of the bridge.

That DOES look very interesting indeed. Although I doubt it is fluid, but rather a solid bed that has been weathered by wind or perhaps the influence of fluids from the past. It would be interesting to see the same area in a different photo to compare the base of this "river canyon" to see if the ripples in the base remain constant.

That absolutely looks like water or some type of fluid.

The thing i notice are the reflections from the canyon walls on to the "water"

I dont seem to be able to pick out the bridge that was mentioned though.

Cant find that bridge that You are talking about, but this surer looks like a river to me . Well or at least a reservoir of water .

Now I just wait for our home debunkers to show up and tell me this is sand . Of course there is a possibility this is sand but hey I'm gonna use your terminology . If it looks like a duck , quacks like a duck..... , and I know that if I showed this exact photo to anybody without saying it is on mars and ask them what they see , they would say they see water and some hills.

The "walking bridge" that I refer to is located in the shadow in the upper right of the image. It looks like it is shaped like an arch. Compared to the water area, it looks quite long. I'll emphasize it better in another photo.

Another pic of the area would be great. It certainly would help in determining what that area contains exactly. I'm not alluding that this indicates life, but if it is water, wouldn't it make a manned mission to Mars much simpler especially since the payload could be halved by making the return fuel on the planet itself, plus eliminate the need of carrying extra water to support the mission's return.

It could make the mission's length of time spent exploring much longer.

As you follow the water direction from the area you can see more evidence of what looks like sluce gates etc., with more obvious signs of flowing of water. It looks very similar to iced flows here on earth rivers.

It leans towards intelligent design strongly in my own opinion if it is water, but that designer could be long extinct from whatever catyclism happened to mars in its distant past.

Thanks to everyone for checking out this thread.

I'd like to offer a suggestion. Aren't you able to determine the elevation from which these pictures (particularly MOB's latest) are taken?

If so, couldn't we then look at some pictures of earth from comparable elevations - to see what water looks like in those?

If someone can give me the elevation, I'll try to dig up a picture...

This is from the first photo I posted, photo PSP_003656_2015. It has a resolution of 28.5 cm/pixel, so the whole image shows an area of 272 by 154 metres.

(Click the image for the full size version)

This is from other photo, photo PSP_005845_2015, showing the same area. The resolution of this photo is slightly smaller, at 30.9 cm/pixel.

(Click the image for the full size version)

And this is from the same photo but from a different area, showing how it looks like in false colour (they do not use red, green and blue filters, so this is not a true RGB image).

(Click the image for the full size version)

We can see that the "ripples" are small dunes, and that they are in the same places after more than five months (the first photo was taken in 08 May, the second in 2007 25 October 2007).

PS: I changed the brightness on the first two images.

I've decided not to start new thread and as I can't use ats search at work, I hope there aren't too many threads about the same news story.

Here it goes:
Tantalizing Signs of Recent Water Activity

Long story short, scientists from Brown University think that liquid water was on surface of Mars at least 1,25 M years ago and probably also even only 500000 years ago (they say ice melted and most of the water turned into vapor instantly at that time).

Yes, there was at least one thread about it, and it's an interesting idea, but for the moment we can not be sure of anything.

Hello Armap,

As usual, your replies are most helpful, just one little point I would like to make,

the third area you show as you rightly state is not of the area of interest, so still there remains some non conclusive data to me personally. Its not my intent to prove to anyone else my opinions for they are just that, 'opinions'.

You are an asset to ats Armap and be assured that I as well as most do greatly appreciate your help in deserning the truth. Many thanks to you my friend.

Mars is still a mystery, but I have a feeling that this mysterious planet's secrets are slowing being solved.

Best Regards to you and to all in the thread.

Also I find it very fascinating the new post regard the water history theory of Mars. Most interesting.

I have been absent from this thread for health reasons and apolize to you all for that. Its migrane time again! Migranes just wipe me out. They come in clusters. Ugh!

Take care All,
