If a meteorite then I think there should be a much bigger crater around the object.

Natural formation, but it look metallic and its reflecting lights.

A hole? But seems to reflecting lights. Dark water? Oil?

I really dont know what this can be.

Looks like a glass dome to me - reflection and all.

Great vantage point for a lookout too.

Check out robotcoppolas other stuff from his channel too - good finds!

Using Google Mars, i couldnt find any Hirise images of that area, the Hirise mapping falls just short.

Although CRISM had an image of that area ( raw link below )

crism-map.jhuapl.edu...

The object is in the lower right corner of the image. Looking at the RGB version, it looks like a crater but then in greyscale it looks dome like.

Although in the image you posted it was strange that it seemed reflective...

Thanks for the pictures.

Seems different from what I saw in the first picture(robotcoppola).

But Look what ZORGON posted.

The problem with the image is it could be just optical illusion. Instead a crater you see a dome, its a very common optical illusion.

Of course not, I always U2U 3 people when I found things relevant.

You, as a master.

ArMaP and Arken as friends

Agreed. And more often than not it is true, the craters do seem to be optical illusions. However, in this case, this particular anomaly just doesn't seem to fit that assessment. It is much darker than all of the other craters in the rest of the pic, and seems out of place where it is at. Just my observation, I'm not quite sure what to make of it myself, but will keep an open mind to the opinions of others in this thread. Fascinating nonetheless.

yeah the resolution isnt as good as the MOC image but we really need a Hirise image to get a better look at it.

Here is a more user friendly raw image source, you can change format of the download etc:

You see. the most simple explanation is probable the correct one.



A giant dome (200m wide) at the border of cliff/mountain. Who the heck would build something useless like that there?

If you see the around of the "dome" you see a darker area. See like something was expelled from center of that area. One more clue that suggest it was some kind of impact imho.



Remember you are seeing a black and white image, it lacks a lot of information because of that. Don't be fooled about the "colored" version in the video because someone painted/added the colors by himself.

Useless? Why do you think it would be useless. I think nothing better for a observation post than being at that very spot. There is no way of knowing to what serve something like that. Useless or useful, if someone has built it, must have built with property.

And How can you tell That "like something was expelled from center " if it lacks a lot of information as you said?

But there is a darker darker area. How can that thing reflecting lights?

I think not natural at all.

Indeed, Occam's Razor and all that.

Good question. no idea as to who or why, or even if that's what it is.

Possible it's an impact. The lighting is a bit funny though, and the shadows suggest a roundish shape.

Yea, I was only paying attention to the picture that Zorgon posted above. Other people's colorizations tend to throw me off.

So, after zooming in using photoshop...certain hexagonal geometries seem to pop out...but it could just be a trick of the light. Still strange to be looking at the surface from another planet...

Perhaps, millions of years ago, a meteorite impacted there, got covered, then it came to the surface due to erosion?
one explanation I am partial to.
