Titled - Layered Martian Outcrop 'Shaler' in 'Glenelg' Area

To me, this is showing standing water beneath these shale-like ledges. I can see the reflection - just like you can when you go for a walk beside the river here on Earth.

If you had not been TOLD over and over again there was no water currently on Mars, wouldn't you just assume these were puddles of water? It suddenly came into my mind that this is what we are being shown here and maybe this is why the picture was taken. We all know that the best way to hide something is in plain sight and so to me, this is what it is.

C'mon scientists of the world - dont be so fixed - NASA are showing you this to move you towards an understanding that there is water on Mars. Realise what you are being shown.

Of course, I suppose it could be just me 'seeing' what I want to see. :-)

There is water on Mars.

It's just not in liquid form.

I can't see what you're talking about in the pictures either, can you circle it or something?

Beautiful rock formations, but no water dude.

Funny, i would have gone with the beautiful sea shell for my argument. Still...nice picture. Love me some mars.

It's a nice thought, but, If you look closely, it's just fine sand and higher contrast shadowing.

Mars weather for Curiosity ranges from a high of 45 degrees above zero, to minus 94 degrees Fahrenheit.
Any standing water would be ice, or develop as frost crystals.

Source: Weather on Mars surprisingly warm

... and 45 above zero to minus 94 is supposed to be "warm".

Have to agree,it does look like there is water below those "Slatey" type outcrops.

Think it is emphasised by the slightly lighter shadow, and the smoothness of the surface as compared to the more granular surroundings.

Guess it is just more evidence of running water at one time on the surface.

Great photo never the less and well spotted if it does actually turn out to be a liquid of some sort.

Seriously tho, what is the likelihood of a rock forming like a seashell on mars...and now im seeing a starfish fossil next to it.

It looks like water under those slate rocks, but it's really fine dust.

Illusions.

The water I see is under the slate overhangs in the lower left quadrant.

On the middle left edge of the image there is a piece of flat slate angled downwards and underneath that and to the right and left of it there appears to be water. There is no detail in the area to the right of the flat slate but it is grey reflection of water which is lighter.

What gives this away as water is that you can see THROUGH the water to the ground below where there is shadow a little further to the right. In the grey area, you can only see lighter reflection and NO detail. (which you would be able to if it was not a reflection)

To those who say that standing water is not possible, step outside the box for a moment and consider what if we are seeing water here, all you have been told are lies.

If you do not see water, please explain the third paragraph above - the grey featureless area and the black detailed area of shadow.

Thanks for the post with the cool Mars picture but I see no water at all. Unless...of course...it must be camo water. I heard one time from a friend of a friends cousin who was married to another persons friend who had a brother who told them that they had camo water on mars so this must be it.


Seriously though, keep looking because I absolutely love these entertaining mars anomaly posts. The rat one is my current favorite.

Thanks!

It's just another example that nature provides all that we need...even smilies if we look in the right place.

I believe those are shadows which are present all over mars, even on sand.

Edit: Some of the shadows even have contours that match the contours of the sand below the rock shelves.

I'm not saying there was or is currently no water on mars, just that these photos are a reach at best.

I see a standing water like after the rain. But that is just me...but that is possible not even a Mars photo...

and if there was water on mars...... then what?
Would it be the best discovery in human history?
Do you believe we would somehow be living on Mars soon?

Personally I don't even know why we are exploring Mars when we still haven't even explored 90% of our oceans here on earth.

(it's like "skip the ocean man, what's on that desert planet mars!? ALIENS!?")

I have been wrong before and I am quite prepared to be wrong again, but.... how do we explain the grey area and the dark shadow area.

As I said above, the grey area has NO detail, and the shadow dark area HAS detail in it. This is exactly how an area of water would appear with shadow on part of it and reflection of the lighter sky on the other part of it. This is what we have here. The image above with the two red arrows is correct. The area in question is the area the lower red arrow is pointing at.
