Now forgive me if im wrong but zoom into the bottom of that hill on the top right side of the page. Is that water?

so maybe there is sub terrain waters

It must be water because when I clicked on your link NASA had already covered it up and I couldnt even get the picture. Man they are quick, they must monitor us post by post.

It's sand, you get similar effects here on Earth in deserts.

Good way to tell it's sand is how it's at an angle on the hill.

i have sliced the part of the image im talking about for you guys, that clearly is not the same as the rest of the terrain!

Although you do need to see the whole image to see how it clearly cannot be just sand surely!

photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov...

Yes i know its on an angle but why is it blue?? Can you show me anything to proove me wrong.

To me it defnetly looks like shallow water above sand.

Hey, isn't PIA10214 the one with the statue thing? I couldn't find it on there, but I swear that's the one...
Don't see water however. Don't you think NASA would of seen it first, BTW?

look at the colour difference. That cant be just sand, can it?



It looks to me as the outline goes to the furthest left it gets shallower?

As i said before you need to look at the whole picture to see the difference, to me it really does look like a very small pond of water? You can not find the same shade of blue anywhere else in the image it clearly is blue. Sand is not blue, i understand how the shading can make it look greyish but thats blue,

Ok, lets say it is water.

This IS the picture with the "statue" in the lower left corner, the most looked at picture from the mission by far.

Do you really think you just found something, thousands of times larger in the picture and in real life of the "statue" that got world wide media attention?

Everyone just forgot this lake in the picture?

It's black sand, just like black and gray sand beaches here on earth.

It's sand. The darker color is a lighter, darker colored sand. It gets blown around easily, covering the heavier particles.
I've seen it before dry areas here in Florida, and also in dried riverbeds.

But its not black! what are you going on about. I dont care if no one else has said it before. Its there what ever. That to me clearly is not black / grey / sand. Its in no way the same colour as anywhere else in the picture? cmon people use your own brains. That is clearly blue is it not?
Can somone please show me an image of earthly sand that is the same colour as that. or explain to me why it is BLUE and not the same colour as anywhere else in that picture?

Well, it looks like it to me..

This picture has been covered trillion of times here.

Yes, it does look like water but that's just sand dune that was being blown by wind.

Ever seen desert. Sand dune on earth? You'll see the same effect. Heck, even on the beaches.

You'll notice that in other photos on Mars that "water" is always static and same at different times.

Its not about showing a picture.. Its just "Dirty Sand".

Im sure you have seen multi-tone sand before? Am i right?

When you are on the beach and your walking along and your on some really night sand.. Then occasionally you will see some different colour 'yucky' looking sand.

Its the same.

You have been provided with evidence that sand can look like water, and now you are asking for proof that sand can get dirty?

Well, the picture is a combination of 3 color filters (in some cases 5, or even 6). It is not a true color picture. It's only an approximation.

I think the picture you posted is the only one in that area that NASA has posted. However, there are plenty of pictures of other areas that show the same pattern. The rover has taken pictures of the same area at different times and yet it's static.
