Deltoid shape on Mars

Greetings.

Thought I'd share this find of what looks like a pretty damn near perfect delta shape just laying around half-buried in dust, somewhere on Mars. I say "somewhere" because, sadly, this is one of my few finds that i have somehow disassociated from the original image. However, it is from one of the older satellites and from a "random" area. I understand that it may be frustrating not knowing the size of the shape, but I'm guessing it's somewhere around 100 Meters across or larger.

Any thoughts?

Why are you concerned about this terrain feature?

Sorry, but I just don't see this as anything more than a natural feature of the landscape.
I'm not saying there isn't some weird stuff up there, I just don't think this is one of them.
Keep searching, good luck.

Wow, that is kind of hard to approach. May i say that I am interested in this feature since it seems to be partially embedded in the dust. I can not see that it is attached to any terrain - although it well may be. I think it looks out of place and also very geometrically symmetrical. As such I find it way more interesting than abstract "facial features" in rocks and things like that.

Hi, this happen when you use images with different resolutions to make a map. I've zoomed the triangular thing:

You may, of course, say anything. And if you think it looks out of place, that's fine. I was just wondering what criteria you were applying to make it "interesting". Thanks for your reply.

Isn't it clear that this is a fairly low res image of a natural feature; it looks like a crater to me which has been eroded by the martian wind storms. What is this constant need to 'see' artefacts on Mars? Sadly it is a dead world with no advanced lifeforms.

Damn! The debunkers sure are hitting hard & fast these days


I find the feature interesting, but unfortunately it's far too inconclusive without better resolution.maybe measuring the angles could be a good idea?
If it were perfectly equilateral then maybe it's worth looking into further, if not then it's probably best to leave it until better quality imaging is available....

The image essentially is a scale version of the original. After you said that I took a ruler out, and I'll be damned it is equilateral. Still probably a natural feature but it is an equilateral triangle.

The two corners that are visible also seem rounded in a very similar way, but again there really is no reason it couldn't just be an eroded, half buried crater.
Reminds me of the crater on the moon that has a perfect triangle within it, can't remember it's name at the moment...

'Deltoid'? You mean like 'like a delta, but not quite'? I thought a deltoid was a muscle...

But if it's equilateral, maybe it's there for a reason? There's been a lot of natural coincidences like this, too many to discount?

Perfect geometric shapes do not occur very often in nature although it has been seen before. 8 characters...

I was just on about the number of times it's been posted on here that people have looked at moon/mars/earth(to an extent) photography and pointed things like this out. I'm not saying by any stretch that they were all legitimate, most were jumping at shadows.

Your sniper kitty unnerves me more and more...

There are things such as the hexagon on Saturn, that seem to indicate that geometric shapes may occur naturally due to mechanisms we are yet to fully understand. perhaps this could be something similar?

He sure comes in handy in a bind. He is cheap too. I pay him in catnip...

Yeah people jump at shadows a lot. I think this one is interesting just because it is a perfect triangle. That alone makes it worth looking at.

It actually looks like a heart.

Martians are so romantic.


ED, I'll have to call this one interesting but not that unusual.

Maybe, sort of like the perfect geometric shapes formed in crystals?

Agreed. Lets prod further. What do you reckon could have formed this? I'd put forward natural erosion following an impact at a crazy angle perhaps, or some sort of weather pattern not observed on earth?

No it's far too perfect to have been caused by weather. It could be volcanic i suppose but It couldn't be a crater because craters wouldn't form perfect triangles just perfect circles.


To put an alien spin on it (just to keep things fresh) it could be the landing place of an aurora

Eh, what to debunk? A kind of rounded-off triangle shape on Mars. Yay! Whoop-dee-doo! So much for all those people who say UFOs and aliens don't exist!

Really, there are a lot more interesting rock and sand shapes on Mars. This one doesn't rate too high. Not even worth fighting about.

We could definetely do with less fighting... Even the Martians are trying to tell us to make love, not war!
