Here are a few of the strangest images taken by various probes that show intriguing objects on the Moon and Mars that are as mysterious as they come.
There has been much discussion on a few of these images but there have been no firm conclusions as to what these objects really are or how they could
possibly have been produced by natural geological processes. Or even how the strange ‘shadows’ have been produced.
Some of these images are new as I’ve just spotted them, mostly in Dr Robinson’s album of images taken by the Lunar Orbiter. Space Imaging expert,
Keith Laney, who worked for NASA/AMES for the 2003 Mars Exploration Rovers mission, has himself mentioned that these LO images are uncensored and has
also found scores of other anomalies that are ‘devastating’! And this coming from an expert in the field.
Most debunkers and skeptics go to great lengths explaining these away as camera glitches, or are just rocks and their shadows. But look closely.
Invoking Occam’s razor, there could be much simpler explanations - like alien artifacts?
If these cannot be explained as natural occurrences, is there a possibility that what we’re looking at are alien artifacts or man made structures,
implying that there could be or was a base of sorts on the Moon/Mars? Far fetched on the face of it. But do we know EVERYTHING that’s going on
around us or out there? Making an attempt or even trying to provide out-of-the-box explanations is blasphemy, as it does not conform to our scientific
Having said that, lets get started!
The Artifacts On Mars
Equally Spaced Objects
Here’s an image of Mars taken from the Opportunity camera in Jan 07.
Opportunity Sol 1070
There are six objects you can clearly see that I’ve marked in red squares. They are all equi-distant! Can this be possible in nature? Are they just
stones lying around, or are these artificial constructs? (There are more objects in a straight line in the original
which I have cropped).
Here are three strange objects exactly 800 feet apart
on Terra Meridiani!! Natural stone formation? You be the judge!
MOC narrow-angle image M00-01661
This next image is near 86.8°S, 341.3°W. This is an area termed ‘Anomaly 502’. Note the ‘craters’ on the upper right of the image on the
left. The B/W pic on the right which I’ve reoriented to match the image on the left, is purportedly a radar contour image of the same area where one
can clearly see the ‘craters’. But they all seem equally spaced!
Rare for a natural phenomenon!
Here’s a very strange structure that resembles a helmet! Notice that the lower edge overhangs the cliff. Looks like an artificial dome-like
‘Cities’ on Mars
And here are a couple of images of what look like alien cities on Mars! There has been a lot of discussion on these images, with some contending that
this is the result of pixilation, compression, 3D overlay artifacts etc. Some image experts have contended that this has nothing to do with any of the
above explanations. It could be the real deal!

Below is an image comparison decorrelated by Keith Laney. On the right is the IR image
with false color enhancement in the Cydonia area. Does
the IR image look like a city scape? You bet it does! No pixellation/compression artifacts here!
Here is a nighttime infrared image of a portion in Hydaspis. The lighter areas are heat sources. Considering their geometric design, it seems to be an

The Golf ball
Another interesting image is the crater with a golf ball like structure inside. This one defies the usual explanations….
And here’s the Amundson Scott South Polar Station on the left. Notice the resemblance with the Mars ‘Golf Ball’ structure on the right?
Tracks on the Moon and Mars
In the image below that I have cropped from the original image in undo’s
web site, I discovered what look like parallel ‘tracks’ that run
up the mountain from the valley floor, following the contours of the terrain
in Candor Chasma. Though it’s a 3-D overlay, it does not explain
why these have formed. The image joint which is in a straight line is also clearly visible below the ‘tracks’. So these ‘furrows cannot be the
result of a joint.
Compare what look like ‘tracks’ on Mars as well as the Moon. The Mars image (below) is the Mojave crater in the Xanthe Terra region. The second
image is as viewed through the IAS viewer. Notice the almost perfect arc of a circle formed by one of the objects!

Note that these semicircular ‘tracks’ are going up-hill. The tracks seen going across are on the top of a ridge which is more or less flat. Not
enough incline to make a stone roll across loose soil! Zorgon had showed these images to his source at NASA who said that these may
boulders but he wasn’t too sure, but nonetheless were pretty intriguing!
The two images below are what I found whilst studying the Lunar Orbiter images from Prof Robinson’s collections. Note that these ‘tracks’
were photographed in 1967 BEFORE any probe landed on the Moon!
So these cannot be explained away as tracks made by a Lunar Rover.
Artifacts On The Moon
Here are four photographs from the Lunar Orbiter showing what look like towers.
More New Moon Anomalies
Here’s an anomaly found by ziggystar60 in one of the images from Dr Robinson’s collection of Lunar Orbiter images.
Shown below, colorized, are two images containing weird land forms that look like they have been designed as such. Natural geological formations
having such geometric shapes are difficult to imagine. But then again, we aren’t sure as to what natural processes could have produced these on the
So can all these be explained away as just rocks and shadows? Or geological formations or processes on Mars and the Moon - of which we haven’t the
faintest clue? Or could they be vestiges of an ancient ET civilization?
I leave it to you to decide!
