Let me make it clear from the beginning that I am not advocating life on Mars or ancient Martian civilizations or any other similar hypothesis and definitely NO NASA conspiracies, etc, etc, etc

Instead, I simply want to highlight (yet) another interesting looking anomaly photographed on the Martian surface. I'm quite certain that whatever it may be, that it in all probability has a very mundane and natural explanation for it's existence and nothing to get too excited over.

Having said the above, I personally find it to be quite unusual especially considering that it's apparently unique to it's location.

The original image can be seen at:
www.uahirise.org...


Here's a pic showing 4 similar items that appear to have a similar shape and all display quite a high albedo compared to their immediate surroundings.



From the 4 similar items, the top right item is of the most visual interest.
Here I show that particular item in 5 magnifications ... original; x5; x10; x20 and x40.

(p.s. Looks like a shiny, metallic eye-ball to me
)

definately looks metallic and round ??

and from the scale of the pictures I would say these are quite big ?

but Im sure NASA/Debunkers/People hiding the truth will say they are natural metal formations or a coin/part dropped from the mars rover

are there a few more to the right of this formation ??

Interesting.

It's blue, pretty cool. Ummm, is it on the ground or on the side of a mountain/ hill? Not quite clear on that...

Very interesting.

S&F!

Shadows all look good with the shadows of the terrain. They do look huge.

But I'm sure there will be dozens of posts saying photographic anomaly!

Ever notice how all pictures of space or planets all have these types of errors yet the billions of photos from photographers on Earth are so beautiful?

Oh that's right space photography is so complicated.

Notice how good satellite photos of Earth through the atmosphere are so good yet pictures of the moon are so bad. Yet there is no atmosphere to photograph through.

Even orbital pictures of Mars through it's atmosphere are better than those of the moon through no atmosphere.

I hate to break it to these defenders of NASA but pictures taken from orbit of Mars and Earth are spaced based pictures. Yet you keep telling us all how complicated space photography is and discount our suspicions of what exactly you are all hiding on the moon.

As far as I can tell, it appears to be sitting on relatively flat ground.

And yes, quite an interesting and very distinct colour compared to it's drab surroundings.

There are way more than four of those on the original image...WAY more....seems they are all over the show.

Entrances to underground civilization? Underground alien bases?


Hey- Anything is possible!

Looks like someone is getting fired from the nasa airbrushing department.

But in seriousness have you asked nasa what they think it is. Dont let em know your a conspiracy theorist just say your interested in the funny lookin rocks and want to know what their theory is. Also, just how many of those have you counted? and I think they may be different sizes, or it may just be varying distance from camera

Thanks for making the thread tauristarcus.

I was looking at this exact same picture this morning with the IAS viewer and wondering about those high-albedo orb things

Neat coincidence. Great pics.

My pleasure


As I mentioned in my OP, they mosy likely have a very mundane explanation but even so, still look, in my opinion, to be pretty neat ! Too bad we have no way to determine it's approximate size.

Yet another example why I love ATS

Where and how do you people find these things. I don't think my eyes could take it.

Great find.

S&F

Awesome find man
... Those definitely look out of place and distinct. The close up looks like a blue metallic sphere for sure. I am sure someone with some some skills and a nice program can come up with some better zoom ins on that. I know there is some anomaly type rock that NASA calls blueberries but in all honesty this looks way too big and perfectly shaped to be that. I am very curious to see what this is! Thanks for the find S+F!

"Out of place" is a good way to describe it.
I try to picture in my mind how such an object could end up where it did. It's obviously out of place when you compare it to the general surroundings and all I can really come up with is that it's material ejecta as the result of a meteoric impact somewhere in the immediate vicinity. But still, there's that anomalous highly reflective surface and striking blue colour.

Later on today I'll try to clean up the image if possible and try to tease a little more detail out of it.

Understand first of all that these are false color images.
When the whole region is seen in greyscale at high resolution the objects look a lot less "out of place".



A very high resolution image is available here:

it might be fragments from the meteor that made that crater

Ok Phage, I'm confused. You said that the images were false color, then you refer us to greyscale as a better alternative? What is more accuarate about that? To be honest the coloring in the op picture seems alot more true to the colors that the surface of Mars is supposed to be like, isn't it? I really don't think that the red planet is actually black and white.

But to the op, I think like another post said that they are what NASA calls "blueberries" whatever the heck that is....

Ok maybe they are NOT blueberries, just looked at NASA site and it said average size of blueberries is only 4 millimeters. Much smaller than those would have to be judging by the fact that the pic is not originally a closeup taken from the surface. It mentioned though in relation to the blueberries that they were helpful in understanding the wet past of Mars...

And we all know metal doesn't occur in nature and that roundness can only mean something is artificial... [/sarcasm]

There are numerous natural processes that can lead to minerals or rocks looking round and there are tons of metals common to this vast Universe of ours...

Edit to Add: Star and Flag for the OP for saying its probably not aliens! This is the first time I've seen one of these threads where someone readily came out and said it was probably mundane...

Hehehe after joking around on the earlier thread showing these images you delivered the goods, tauristercus. Rather unusual clump of slightly too circular objects. Perhaps they are some sort of doorway or sealed dome for an underground base?
