I think trying to pick out rocks that look like stuff is a waste of time. Just seems like a game to me and about as far away of the smoking gun you can get. Unlike ufo sightings and witness testimony which I take seriously- playing wheres waldo on mars should have it's place but not taken too seriously.

That's not to say I don't like looking at mars I do, but this isn't proof of anything other than those who see the horse have imagination.

I do see the "horse" that you spoke of in the OP, but the negative shows, IMO, a better contrast between the two rocks that makeup the horse.

Sorry if the negative pic, along with the highlighted areas I mentioned, were talked about earlier in the thread. It has been a long day and I have not taken the time to read the entire thread. I was very interested in the pic and may have jumped the gun.

My point is that it can be very easy to see what we want to see, but further investigation may show that it is completely normal.

It's a great pic and I love to sift through the small anomalies within! Thanks!

I understand - sometimes these long threads can make for a very long read, to read it completely. No, the negative shot was not discussed earlier. It was the other pic where you identified two "anomalies", that was posted on page 6. Hey, don't worry about it. I do hope to post something you can be more positive on soon!!!

Come on people - a true anomalie is something that cannot be explained easily. This can.


Hmmm well then try this one

NASA really needs to get a team of National Geographic photographers up there.


Nice one
Great to see you finally getting with the program

Actually, I would like to thank the OP for bringing this pic to my attention. There are other things that spike my curiosity in this pic.



These particular sections stand out to me. What do you think? Some sort of debris field?


stratum?

You and 60 others who stared that post are all suffering from a brain disorder "Prosopagnosia"

I find it hard to believe we have so many blind people on ATS :shk:

Oh well





But I am more interested in the other pieces of ruins in that photo and in the rest of the area






That last one is very intriguing indeed

It looks like horse head (In rock.) That's all I see though.

I guess we all see what we want to see. I see what people would like to think is vaguely a horse but it's just rocks. Still fun and cool to look for shapes in things though. I do it with the clouds all the time.

well i see the horse for sure, i get what the OP is looking at. however, especially in the color pic he had you can clearly see it is multiple rocks. the "head" is not attached to the body and the hind leg is jutting out at an awkward angle that could never ever be physically possible.

though, there is one big thing i noticed causing a lot of problems. there is a defect in the pic, there is a line down the middle of the pic from top to bottom, well more like a blur and shift in the image there. that is what gives the look of a jaw on the head as it the shifted line creates the artifact you see. i am almost positive if the whole image was completely perfect then the head would just appear as a flat rock that had nothing to do with the "body" of the horse.

Seriously, I'm not talking about the Washington Monument; there are naturally formed phallus' outside of Washington and Mars for that matter. See above...

Oh wait.... shoot, it's a naturally formed rock too.

Hey deathlord, could you post the "pic defect" you are referring to. I don't see what you are referring to, neither in the screenshots, nor in the full Rover pic.

Horse looks like a Mars horse statue I guess. Legs can be anyway they wanted them, square, straight, flat, whatever!

Why do I always fall for threads like this. I mean, I usually don't reply but I can't resist clicking on them even though 100% of the time there's really nothing to see except rocks.

Because your subconscious mind is dragging you in here.
Its trying to nudge you to open your mind but your conscious mind is resisting.

I find it hilarious how many people drag themselves into a thread like this to say they see nothing. WHY? Why do they all have that urge to tell us they see nothing when there is obviously something that looks like a horse... even IF you just claim pareidolia

I mean look at the guy named Trollz 81 people starred his post that says he sees nothing... yet all 81 of them came to look




So why this pathological urge? A thousand people can come in and say they see nothing and it will still be there


Of course MOST of those will just look at the OP state they see nothing and never read the rest of the thread so they won't see that they have been diagnosed as having a common brain defect called Prosopagnosia

Ironic isn't it?

I don't see it, all I see is a rock surrounded by a bunch of other rocks.The mind can see anything in that pile of rocks if you look at it long enough.Oh wait!No its still just a pile of rocks.

Okay really? I get that it's definitely just a pile of rocks but it does resemble a horse. Lots of rocks happen resemble other objects. It's pretty normal/regular. The fact that you can't see the horse shape makes me question your judgement/eyesight. :/

Sorry friend, what you are seeing as a horse statue is at least two separate rock piles and shadows. Take a closer look, you can clearly see the separation between the rocks. Although I can clearly see the horse shape, I just don't agree that it is manufactured.

There's some real mind-jerking pareidolia on Mars, that's for sure. There's some that is undeniable, others where you have to really stare. I've looked at the same image 3 times a day for a week once and I saw 3 different things that I absolutely could not see while I was seeing the other. The mind scrambles to program these patterns into one.

I do believe that there are many, many terrestrial-like rock formations and rocks that look handled in some way. We need our laser beam guy to get there soon!
