Hello ATS! As the product of my boredom I have found some interesting pictures on mars. I was using Google earth and switched to the mars viewer. I am not saying that I have found proof of aliens, all I'm saying is that as I stumbled on to them they were so odd that I had to screenshot them and create this post. If anyone knows what they might be then let me know! And even if you have no clue then still put your 2 cents in because thats the whole point of a discussion board!

here's my 2 cents on that last image,eherm, make it 4, i'm raising up the ante...
in my point of view, this image should be viewed in this perspective,

where we can have have some references as to where the source of light or illumination by comparing the luminations of the surrounding areas.
and looking at it closer, from a "viewing distance" of 1000 meters, the illumination eminating from it is not from reflection of a light source but seems to emanate itself from the image thus it looks like a metallic object seen from above.

So i kind of checked it from the 'behind" and this is what i got,


there seems to be a solid structure that cast the shadow we are seeing from the front and above...
so there goes my 4 cents...also take a good look around and you will find some interesting structures....

A metallic object would have much brighter spots, the cameras used to take those kind of photos are not expecting something as reflective as metal, so the sensors get overloaded in situations like that.

"metallic object" is the op's prefered description and i dont want to divert from it. My own take is "a solid structure".
what it is could be anybody's guess...

bump star and flag.


I do hope these pictures get looked at closer by more people here. I like the last picture, where it's clearly casting an anomalous shadow.

After looking at the original photos I could see that the domed crater is really a domed crater.


Here are the images from the Opening Post in their original versions.

I still don't see anything special.

You were right, it's a dome, and now I think I understand your "Sun's position" label as pointing to where the Sun was and not the direction from which the light was coming; the light is coming from the top left corner


As you can see, it's not a hole, just a darker area of the ground, probably one of those blueish areas.

Nothing to add.

You can see that the shadow is not that dark on the original photo. For some reason, the images Google uses have too much contrast.
I still think it's a dust-devil.

There are towers like this one all over the solar system...been seen on Mars, the Moon, Iapetus, etc.

Since all Mars imaging is altered (smudged/overwritten/weakly contrasted), it behooves us to cast a jaundiced eye on all findings. It doesn't matter if they support the official story or the most lunatic (Is this possible on Mars?) imaginings.

I think that the tower should be followed up by a gifted image monger. The others may be interesting geologically and potentially for other reasons.

I really do believe in UFO's and earth bound aliens, but i would like to say that if these are in the NASA archive why would they contain anomlies. We know that NASA 'Shop' there photo's to remove any structures so why would these photo's be any different.

Do you think that NASA let these slip through the net.

Saying that i always like to look at these amazing pictures and you have done that, so thanks...

How do you know that all Mars images are altered?

Why, isn't the "tower" part of an altered image?

That reminds me that I forgot to mention the source, in this case, ESA.

To the people that said the last image is a dust devil, why is the surrounding ground void of any tracks that would be made by a dust devil?

Maybe the ground in that area doesn't get as easily marked as the ground in other areas.

yeah thats true. It just seems like there would be even a faint trail of the dust devil. But what do I know, Im sure as heck not a NASA scientist

I'd like to bring this thread back into attention. The images are really peculiar and I think there are more comments to be added to this thread.
