The image is 100% real. What the object is is another question.
This is taken from the most recent Mars image on the HiRise website.

Here is the area the object was found...

Do you suspect this is natural rock feature or do you think it may be something much more significant?

Edited to add: just remembered a video I saw a few days ago on Buzz Aldrin saying there was a monolith on some potato shaped moon orbiting ( i may be wrong) mars.

one on mars, one on one of its moons, that's quite the a coincidence isn't it?

I would really like to know the size of this object.
If it is indeed large, than it is very interesting. I hope someone will chime in with more knowledge of size and distance relating to these images.

Yeah, good point, its hard to get a good perspective without any features around to compare it to, i am sure someone out there knows how to tell based by how many meters per pixel the camera photographs at or what not. (i definitely don't know how lol).

I'll be keeping a close eye on this thread.

Interesting super70,something larger to the right as well.

Actual link. IAS Web Start Viewer 3.1.2 accept the download of Viewer 3.1.2 and the .JP2 will load.

Well the image has been through an "Adobe" program of some sort.
(open it in "notepad"). Possibly for re-sizing but I say 100% fake.

I took a screenshot of the image detail, then cropped it.
This is all that was done. Download the JP2 image for yourself, I listed the exact coordinance in the original post.
So don't take my word, See for yourself.

The light seems mostly coming from the East, NorthEast.For the rest of the picture, while the "Monolith" is lit from the South,South West.

Based on another thread on the subject, there is indeed an anomaly, as the OP has found a picture. EXCEPT, that may be the picture of the 'monolith' that is on Mars' moon Phobos?

Anyway, if on Phobos, it's been known about for years, photographed by the Viking lander, I believe (fact check needed).

Some of the more oblique depictions (like in the OP) are computer-generated "what-ifs", based on the original photos which were more directly overhead. These are based, it seems, on t he size of the shadow, and other relative marks and their apparent size.

I think jkrog is right on it, but if interested here's the link tothe other thread:

Here are some better shots of the same ‘monolith’ I believe you are talking about.

Here is one from Phobos that looks a lot like yours, are you sure that image is from Mars and not its moon Phobos?

This is the more well known monolith on Phobos:

The picture on the top of my post is from Mars, the bottom one is from Phobos. It can be hard to tell the difference since Phobos and Mars do have somewhat similar surface characteristics in certain spots.

JK, does 'Google Mars' have the resolution necessary to image this, IF it's on Mars???

edit for humor:

If it's Phobos, then it might be proof of IKEA. Like, "Insert tab 'A' into slot 'B' "


OR, it's the carrying handle.

Woot!!

That is some awesome looking pictures both from OP and jkrog.
Nice finds. It looks almost like it has been driven down in the "sand", with the darker areas around it. It's cubic shape makes it even more intriguing.

Starred and flagged....there ya go!

Ps. OP's image monolith almost looks like one of those spooky gravestones...

The original image posted is from MARS, not Phobos.
