Oh crap... that's funnier than hell...

I haven't watched the video yet but if its shiny and balled up like that it could be a pool of mercury?

And what is strange with this pic??? Didn't know how to put it on the post. Originally taken from ESA.
Zoom in about 3x at the lower part of the image, and see the shapes that is covered.

Also take a look from another angle. Fog in that area!!!

It's a crater. It's just that there is some reflective substance in it that gives it the appearance of a sphere.

Ah so it is your opinion that one cannot see Venus from Mars? Hmmm I wonder if the Martian believe there is intelligent Life on Earth?

Well at least NASA understands the situation

Never A Straight Answer do the job very well.

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

Indeed, Occam's Razor and all that.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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...

i don't know about you guys but i see a skull. lol

One of you has a spaceship and wants to give us a ride??

George Lucas, we know you are reading this! Give us a lift on your secret spaceship so we can go investigate this up close.

, Spielberg has one too for sure.

Apologies if I'm going off topic but I'm newish and can't start new threads. I was going to ask this in the 2012 thread but they all seem to be a bit too intellectual for me and I didn't want to insult their intelligence.
I was reading this thread last nite and you guys seem to be approachable.

Regarding 2012, when the movie and all the hype about it came out I saw prominent physicist/astronomer Michio Kaku on USA news prog "Geraldo at large". They were both poo-pooing it and Kaku actually said that the galactic alignment happens every year. He stumbled at first and said every month, quickly realised his mistake and said "I mean it happens every year". I thought that if this was the case, it would be a lot more common knowledge than it currently is.

i've done the usual laymans research of the Mayan callendar and such-like and was wondering if indeed it does happen every year or every 26,000 years. Can anyone here shed some light on this for me. It would be much appreciated.

Peace brothers

Hey OP,

I have spent some time going over the image and looking at surrounding area's. In the pictures i am going to post below i have posted original raw and also some zoomed and cropped images with some slight contrast / highlight enhancments.

Just some area's i though stood out...

Also to Zoron, when i said you didn't have to post the raw, i meant we can all click links and find it for ourselves and taking up half a page for that raw image which of it was really only 5% needed.... Next time perhaps crop your images... Also you added the image as a GIF, which isnt as user friendly to some programs.

When i said i wanted to look at the raw, i meant in my own time with my own software... not on ATS. So no you didnt need to post the entire image.

First we have the main object, above and to the left, a smaller object.

This image has some higher contrast between highlights and shadows added. I could not zoom any further without totally destroying the image quality, but look for yourself with your own image software.

The object i am trying to point out is strangely out of place with the any surrounding features... also if you look closely, there is one ball or sphere and the 2 or 3 smaller ones around the main object.

Next we have an image to the far Nth ( ref image Nth )

Next we go abit closer with some contrast enhancments:

I noticed the strange lines and what seemed to be organised structure of those lines. Although i do admit they could be natural, i just though it was worth a mention and to get some fellow member opinions. I also want to add that the entire surrounding area's have odd formations but i am not gonna choke the thread with all my images and opinions.

What do ya think peeps?

Would the Mars Surveyer Satilite have made a Topography map of the area?
I'm not sure where to look for images from NASA, Thanks.

Here is the first CRISM (Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Spectrometer for Mars ) that i posted, the resolution is nowhere near as good as the MRO image but it gives a slightly different image quality, colour and perspective to the issue of the original ''sphere'', ''dome'' or crater.

CRISM Raw Image - CRISM Obs ID: 00009386


This image was captured by the MRO - (MOC) of the same area but at higher resolution:

MOC / R11/04144

In regard to cropping, exporting and enhancing with contrast, brightness or highight difference i would suggest looking at your apps on your PC to assist there

I hope all the info above helps....

Also in regard to the topography maps, here are some links:

reply to post by RUSSO's my piece of your apps version...

its about 300 meters in diameter and approximately 500 meters from the chasm's edge.

but its not really a crater because the elevations outside the "crater" are lower than the elevation inside the "crater".which could mean that inside is a protrusion of some sort or say "the anomaly".not an indention or a n impacted area.
the left blue line El. is 2657m, the inside circled line is 2659m, the one to the rightyellowline is 2648 m.,

and though the pixels are really streched out to the limit, it shows some silhouttes of structures.

H007,'s my "opinion"

you're "little object" circled in red but take note of the structures nearby circled in blue.

and the strange line that seems tobe "structures":

and it's just just about 5 kms away from the original anomaly the OP has posted.
i cant blow it up much further or we cant see anything but blurs...
courtesy of google apps...
just an "opinion"

Well i know for a fact it is not on google earth, although i know stuff is sensored on google earth and sky it certainly is not on mars in that location, conclusion is that it is definantly new to the surface.

I also noticed this the other day but have held off on posting it as i wasnt too sure, but i thought id ask some opinions.

It an area below the ''sphere'' or crater object on the cliff walls, it looks like some type of liquid coming from the walls of the cliffs just below the impact crater or ''sphere''.

This one below is a little closer and shows the area where the possible liquid or whatever it maybe begins:

Look it may just be geological, maybe rocks that stick out above the sand / dirt, as i can see that around the area as well ( the whiter coloured contours etc. But i just thought this one stood out and looked ''outta place''

I couldn't find any higher resolution images, but I found some images that show that area.

First, this is the image from the opening post, but converted directly from the real raw image (a IMG file), with levels adjusted without any data loss (the image from the opening post has too much contrast, so we lose some detail in the brighter and darker areas) and a arrow showing the direction of the light.
Resolution is 3.63 metres per pixel

(click for full size image)

These are from the CTX camera aboard Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The resolution is not as good (5.5, 5.38 and 5.02, respectively) as the MOC photo, but the overall quality of the photos is better.




To me it looks like a "fresh" crater.

But could be a fresh crater made by them aliens!
So there's an alien angle to it after all!

Anyway, here's a higher res image of a something in a crater. But, alas, it's just the result of either volcanic activity or an impact from space. Not a Martian dome for sure!

I've seen that before and posted on ATS as well. Not even the Hi-rise team can explain 100% what it is....
