Good Post!

NASA Images are always fun to pick apart. It is hard to tell what the "Artifacts" really are. Need someone like Hoagland to look at the pics. That image did look like it had some crazy cave entrances in the NE corner where the hilly looking mountains are. Anyways.... we need to lay the heat on NASA and tell them to give us some decent images since they have millions of them and we (taxpayers) are the ones who payed for all this!!!!!

Fuzzy, Out of Focus

ITS A UFO....

You think it's metal because of that White spotty bit, is that it.

There is big bit piece of White to the Right as well, is that not metal as well.

It is Interesting, and I'm not going say it could be anything, it's even
too big to be Elvis.

If it wasn't for the Mars thing, then I'd say it looks like a sink hole filled
with water. And the sun is shinning of the water.
But it's Impossible to tell with fuzzy Images.

And I have to Ask:
How come the larger HiRes phote is nothing like photo shown
In fact I can't the Items hilighted anything even remotely similar to the
HiRes.

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:
Lobate Debris Apron in Deuteronilus Mensae (ESP_016959_2240)

Ok, Phage ... lets use that very high resolution image and do a side by side comparison of the items visual quality.



Seems to me that there's a significantly greater amount of image detail presented in the false colour one. Bear in mind also that in the false colour version, the item is sharply and clearly defined indicating that it does in fact exist and is not commensurate with its surrounding terrain.

Obviously you didn't read my OP where I definitively stated that I was NOT claiming it was an alien artifact, ufo, conspiracy or whatever.
I simply saw something unusual and worthy of (in my opinion) display here on ATS.
It's entirely up to each individual reader to hypothesize as to what it may be.

Once again, Phage battering the idea of anything abnormal with his gray scale mindset.

Gotta love it.

I would guess that those are natural objects.
if you look at the surrounding area, you'll find many other circular objects.

You'll also notice that the left half of the image looks darker than the right half. It also looks flatter. where rocks, wouldn't have cover from the darker sediment that is apparent on the left side. just a thought..

What I did find out of the ordinary was this red capsule looking object next to one of the "objects"

These are most likely ancient collapsed lava tubes. You can also find these on the Moon:

Interesting post though....

I forgot to add the article.

Lunar Lava Tubes

My immediate inspection kinda makes me wonder if they are floating around. It looked like shadows underneath barely which would mean that they are just above the surface. Very good thread OP.

I actually did see that 'artifact' originally but discounted it as it appear to mes to be an obvious 'glitch' in the image.

Is that from the 1gb jp2 image?
hirise-pds.lpl.arizona.edu...


The image I linked is not that image. I don't have enough RAM to open it. The page I linked provides higher resolution images, including those of "very high resolution".

But I did not mean to imply that the grayscale image is a better alternative. I was pointing out full image (which is available in grayscale) provides better context. It can be seen that there are numerous similar (though larger) objects scattered throughout the area.

Funny you should mention the capsule - I spotted one far off to the right
Wonder what they are?

The UFO was just a bit sarcasm, nothing to do this at all.
Because most UFO pictures appear that way.
Next time I'll include a warning ***This Post may contain Sarcasm***

it is Interesting, the whole thing looks like a giant glacier though.

I assumed both image links were referring to the same image.
The grey scale image I used came from the 'link to external image' reference on the HIRES site and was NOT from the 1Gb version.

Hmmm ... would be interesting to download the 1Gb version and examine it .... but then again, it IS 1Gb and not sure if such a huge download is justified for what is most likely just a natural feature of the landscape

Very good catch. S&F.

My first impression is that the objects are not natural formations. But then again I have no clue about areology. I have a feeling that somebody at NASA got demoted ...

Since there is currently *zero* convincing scientific evidence of anything even remotely artificial on Mars, I'm guessing these images depict natural features. Sorry - there I go again with the common sense thing....

I wasn't in the slightest alluding to an artificial or alien origin for this artifact ... merely pointing out its unusual location and appearance and that it didn't seem to fit in with its immediate surroundings.

I believe what you are looking at are the mineral drops left from water on mars. "A close up of the rock dubbed "El Capitan" shows fine, parallel lamination in the upper area of the rock, which also contains scattered sphere-shaped objects ranging from 1 to 2 millimeters (.04 to .08 inches) in size. There are also more abundant, scattered vugs, or small cavities, about 1 centimeter (0.4 inches) long". www.news.cornell.edu...


Maybe I am wrong but does look a lot like the picture right??

Yes, there is a similarity in the pic you've supplied.
However, you state that the the dimensions of these spherical objects are in the millimeter size range but checking the HIRES site (and if I'm not mistaken), the minimum diameter being resolved is approximately 90 cms (almost 1 meter). So whatever this spherical artifact may be, its definitely quite sizeable.

For what it's worth I'm downloading the 1gig file now ...

I'm not very good with images so I'll try to find the same location and post it for you guys.

It might take me a while though so don't let me stop anyone else from doing the same.

Great ... will be very interesting to see if such a 'monster' image file will show a significant amount of additional detail associated with that particular artifact ... common sense says that it should.
Anyway, waiting with baited breath ....
