Please refrain from talking for other people, especially if you don´t seem to get what I was pointing out exactly to the other poster I responded to.

Thank you.

It could also be Here in Iapygia as the images on MOC use a 360°W orientation making 75°E 285° and some of the image overlap each are.

I wish they had done this with MRO images! If they have someone let me know. Meanwhile I will keep digging...

And yeah I know a little about Mars.

This is very close!

And there are some odd dark objects in this area. Too bad this is a reference image.

I will keep digging...

My friend,

Could/would you link the original image from NASA's website please?

I find this very, VERY hard to believe


Be safe be well

Spiro

I did make sure to say "He was probably" talking about the 3D buildings option.

And what I said is true. Chadwickus was talking about the "3D buildings" option in GoogleEarth. The 3D building option shows CGI buildings -- NOT real pictures -- and simulated shadows. Therefore, the fact that the eiffel tower is real is not relevant to [what I think] Chadwickus' point was...and that point [I think] is that GoogleEarth shows simulated shadows for their CGI Eiffel tower, and probably shows simulated shadows for the computer-generated "Mars tower" that is the subject of this thread.

The "3D building" version of the Eiffel tower is not real, and the shadows are simulated -- Although the Eiffel tower really does exist. However, that doesn't mean that the Mars tower is real, even though it has similar simulated shadows.

Finally I knew MRO had to have a clickable map of Mars!



I will rumage around here for awhile and come up with something...

From what I can tell, the tower would be in the center the circled area (according to the OP's coordinates). This is the best resolution image I can find right now (I'm still looking).

To get a sense of scale, the crater to the upper right of the circle (outside the circle, at the "2 o'clock" position) is about 10.5 km in diameter, and the small crater at about the "9 o'clock" position (inside the red circle) is about 1.5 km in d1ameter. The red circle itself is approximately 20 km in diameter.




To orient yourself, here is the "You Are Here" map, with the arrow pointing to the area I have circled in the image above. The magenta area in the below image is the entire Hellas Planitia:

Looks like this is as close as MRO gets

this is so obviously just some glitch. its embarrassing to waste everyones time(yours included) on such ignorant fantasy.


Ignorant fantasy is believe that intelligent humanoid species is exclusivity of Earth. How come someone who's part of a civilization that believes the pyramids of Giza were built by malnourished slaves, using chisels, bamboo scaffolding, ropes and wooden cranes, DARES to use the word "embarrassing"??

MRO link to area within Hellas

Actually a crater above Hellas but in the same co-ordinates given

And just for fun or if you are really bored here is the data in the same area for...

MRO - CTX

Mars Global Surveyor MOC

Themis whos link did not want to add correctly lol global-data.mars.asu.edu...

Mars Express HRSC

and finally
VIKING

I belive its only bug. I don't see that in this picture of that region. Its a crater, why there would be huge tower in it?

Ok Thebel no offense but that is Hellas Basin or Crater which is 2,300 km wide so in this image you would not even be able to view an object 5 km in size. Second this is MOLA data which shows elevation but if this was image that was being used yes a 5 km object is about the size of a half a pixel (if that) and would be HUGELY erroneous!

Thebel --

The area in question is very small. The arrow in this picture is pointing to the area in question (see my post above for a higher-res image of that area):

It's a giant alien ant hill lol sorry couldn't resist. In all honesty probably a glitch.
Who knows until we get there and have a look for ourselves.

Ok so I downloaded Google Earth to have a look at this myself. Because it seems to me this is MOLA Data And if that is the case the Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter or MOLA does not support a resolution high enough for this object and is therefore an artifact.

But I will look at it first and still trying to find some images of this region to put this in context...but it is looking less like a monument and more like a Mole(MOLA)hill...

Amazing.. thanks for posting Arken, I love your threads.
We need more highres pictures of that location, its worth checking out

On the photos that are posted it lists ESA (European Space Agency) and G Neukum.

The ESA has been photographing all of mars for several years with a satellite in mars orbit, they release more non doctored pics than NASA.

G Neukum is one of the lead persons responsible for viewing and releasing ESA pics to the public. Many think he is working to reveal more than what NASA wants people to see.

Because this has ESA and G Neukum both listed I would say there is high credibility.

In defense of the OP its possible to have a 5km structure on Mars. Olympus Mons the youngest volcano on Mars its summit is 21 km above datum (Mars "sea" level). So it possible on Mars to have a 5km structure.

Now that said computer generated images don't count for proof.

Ok I finally found an reference image that is 100% at the area and does show the formation. It is not in a very high resolution but of course I will keep digging. I have a caveat however when you go to find the object you probably won’t see it. But I found it in MOLA data and in THEMIS. I will put together something soon that will prove this is the correct location and the object in question but I want to find some more images first...

I can say it is shaping up to be at least interesting!
