NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter took the most recent and much-discussed snapshot from the Red Planet in December of 2006. An anomaly hunter from South Africa, Jean Ward, spotted unusual peculiarities on the surface of Mars when looking at the photo. Despite the fact that the image is almost 15 years old, the researcher’s new inspection of it revealed a strange scenario that had been hidden in plain sight for all these years.
Hundreds of images of Mars have been taken, many of which exhibit amazing inexplicable abnormalities. However, this shot features an eye-catching item in the form of a disc. The object’s diameter is estimated to be between 40 and 50 ft. A superstructure in the shape of a triangle can be seen from above in the top portion, from beneath the Martian dirt that covered its front part.
“Here I showcase an oddity I uncovered at a new point in Ceti Mensa in the area Valles Marineris,” Ward writes on his own blog. The anomaly appears to be a disc-shaped object that collided with Mars’ surface at a low angle and left a trench behind it. The disc-shaped object has a diameter of around 12 to 15 meters. Apart from deleting a few sand dunes to emphasize the item, I didn’t make any further changes to the image.”
Ward hypothesized that the anomaly was a disc-shaped spacecraft that “struck the surface of Mars at a very low angle.” Alternatively, he speculated that the unusual streak behind the strange form may be “a slope going into an underground entrance.”
There are several of them, which allow certain conclusions to be drawn, such as: after the collapse of a ship’s ditch dug into the Martian surface during a fall or rather a forced landing, as evidenced by the gentle trajectory along which this ship landed, plowing an impressive distance and depth of the trail left.
The trench left after landing began to fill up with sand dunes in the first frame, but the second photo indicates that half of the ditch has been cleaned of these dunes. This raises the possibility that the crew of the spaceship survived and took steps to repair the ship and clean certain ditches in preparation for takeoff.
This photograph, which displays amazing strata exposed on the floor of Candor Chasma, a huge canyon in the Valles Marineris region, was put on the NASA mission’s official website with an anomaly.
“The floor here is roughly 4 kilometers below the canyon lip,” NASA researcher Chris Okubo noted. The strata are made up of sand and dust particles that have been carried here by wind or water. These sedimentary strata may have filled the canyon to the rim before being worn away, most likely by the wind. Because of changes in the size of the sedimentary particles, chemical modification, or both, the elongate hills may signify sections of rock that are stronger.
The beautiful swirls that these layers produce are one of the most eye-catching characteristics of this landscape. Sedimentary rock forms horizontal strata in most cases. These layers, on the other hand, have been folded into the current patterns. Folding of the visible strata may have happened as a result of the weight of overlying sediments.
Because these strata may have collected in shallow lakes and experienced chemical reactions with this water, understanding the geologic history of this location may reveal clues regarding the history of water on Mars. The existence of certain types of chemical interactions between water and rock can generate energy that could have kept these locations livable.”
All of the delicate swirls of pebbles and indicators that Martian seas previously splashed here have been spotted by NASA, but an anomaly that has fallen in the vicinity has gone unnoticed. However, if someone closely examines the photograph taken, it is difficult not to see it.
While any of Ward’s incredible scenarios would definitely be great news to UFO enthusiasts who believe Mars was previously home to a race of intelligent extraterrestrials, skeptic onlookers have a different perspective on the anomaly discovered on the Red Planet’s surface. They contend that the peculiarity is more likely to be a trick of light and shadow than a crashed flying saucer or a secret way into an underground extraterrestrial headquarters.
