Ran across this by accident. Looks like a couple of our secret advanced deep-space spacecraft. Or some natural features of the crater. What say you?

That a great find,

Dude, I think you are looking a little too hard at this. It's just dirt and hills.

I didn't look hard enough to find out what crater it is. Perhaps Phage will be along shortly with that info.

If we can find out how big that crater is then the idea its a ship could be totally justified.

Looks like the front of something

Umm yeah, sorry that's just a crater with shadows.

But....

you totally missed the dude flying around on a jet pack!

And, specifically, the crater in question is Manilius.
What you're looking at is the illuminated crater floor - the other side, of course, being in shadow.

Also, I must say... if that's supposed to be something of ours hidden in a crater, then we're not hiding it too well, considering not only are we taking pictures of it but we're also releasing those pictures to the public.

I'm channeling his spirit. Is that alright?

You're a peppy little so and so, aren't you?

Perhaps there are agencies doing things that NASA doesn't know about. Anyway. Thanks for the input. Any feedback is welcome.

Perhaps it's the ship that Space Command secretly sent to Elenin. Or one of a number of ships, one of them having gone to Elenin. Can't really fly huge craft like that in and out of our atmosphere without getting noticed.

Something R-Frequency And E-Class This Way Comes!

I'm just giddy with excitement thinking about it.

The shadows in the two photographs are actually quite similar. You'll notice, in the one I linked to, the shadow is cast on a ledge inside the crater at the upper right. If the view was from an angle, looking at it from the lower left, it would appear very similar to the image you posted. The "craft" is the ledge, which runs around the inside of the crater.

OMG! I found a dinosuar!

But seriously, I hope this image helps you to understand just how easy it is to make yourself think there's something there, when clearly its just dirt/smudges/compression artifacts etc.




And heres a link to the full image so you can see where this "dinosaur" is in the pic - tinypic.com...

Don't get me wrong. I do think its good to analyse everything we see on the net. and this post is not meant to ridicule anyone. Its just sometimes I think we want so desperately for there to be something there that we trick ourselves into thinking it.

Anyway just thought I'd point this out.

I saw the hi-res 6000 x 4000 or so size photo at the link in my posts above:
www.lpi.usra.edu...

I noticed a number of things, including what you pointed out. Looks more like a road to me than a dinosaur.

Um, that's an outcropping of rock.

Without having these pics color enhanced to bring out every little detail, it is hard not to agree with the possibility of some shadowing effects.

Having said that, think everyone can agree there are some "odd" shapes in this picture of shadows.

Like the "nose" and the tail section. Actually the tail section could be partly shadow as there appears some rock debries in the lighted area just behind the rear of a brighter section consistant with the "body" of a craft.

39 kilometers in diameter according to Wikipedia. Pretty huge ship. I mean ledge.
