Mars Anomalies

This section reveals the many unusual geographical features on the Martian surface that appear to be evidence of a once ancient civilisation that may have lived on the red giant.


During a recent interview on an American news channel, Apollo 11 astronaut, Buzz Aldrin, sensationally announced that there is a monolith on Phobos - one of the Moons of Mars. After a brief search, we came across these pictures that do appear to show such an object!
The 'monolith', was snapped from 165 miles away using a special high resolution camera onboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. These pictures bring into question whether there was once life on the Red Planet? Of course, this isn’t the first unusual artefact to be found on the Red Planet. The 'Face On Mars', as well as the 'D & M Pyramid' are just a few of the unusual anomalies that have been discovered in recent years.

The picture above shows the monolith as it appears on the surface of Phobos, and also a zoomed in view. But scientists at the University of Arizona, who captured the original image, claim that it's just an unremarkable boulder, which could measure up to five metres across.
Yisrael Spinoza, a spokesman for the HiRISE department of the University's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory said: 'It would be unwise to refer to it as a "monolith" or "structure" because that implies something artificial, like it was put there by someone.


Buzz Aldrin talks about 'Monolith  On Mars'

Speaking on a U.S. cable television channel last week, Buzz Aldrin said: 'We should visit the moons of Mars. There's a monolith there - a very unusual structure on this little potato shaped object that goes around Mars once every seven hours. An image sent by the Viking spacecraft in 1976 seemed to show a human-like face on the surface of Mars When people find out about that they are going to say, "Who put that there? Who put that there?" Well the universe put it there, or if you choose God put it there.'
In 2007 the Canadian Space Agency funded a study for an unmanned mission to Phobos known as PRIME (Phobos Reconnaissance and International Mars Exploration). The building-sized monolith is the main proposed landing site but not because scientists suspect UFO activity.

Mars Lander spots falling snow

Nasa's Phoenix spacecraft has discovered evidence of past water at its Martian landing site and spotted falling snow for the first time, scientists reported. Soil experiments revealed the presence of two minerals known to be formed in liquid water. Scientists identified the minerals as calcium carbonate, found in limestone and chalk, and sheet silicate. But exactly how that happened remains a mystery.

A laser aboard the Phoenix recently detected snow falling from clouds more than two miles above its home in the northern arctic plains. The snow disappeared before reaching the ground. Phoenix landed in the Martian arctic plains in May on a three-month mission to study whether the environment could be friendly to microbial life. One of its biggest discoveries so far is confirming the presence of ice on the planet.

Scientists long suspected frozen water was buried in the northern plains based on measurements from an orbiting spacecraft. The lander also found that the soil was slightly alkaline and contained important nutrients and minerals. Scientists think there could have been standing water at the site in the past or the ice could have melted and interacted with the minerals.

"Is this a habitable zone on Mars? I think we're approaching that hypothesis," said chief scientist Peter Smith of the University of Arizona. "We understand, though, that Mars has many surprises for us and we have not finished our investigation."

Mars today is frigid and dry with no sign of water on the surface, but researchers believe the planet once was warmer and wetter. Nasa extended the three-month mission through the end of the year if Phoenix can survive. With summer waning, less sunlight is reaching the spacecraft's solar panels. Phoenix will be out of touch with ground controllers briefly in November when the sun is between Earth and Mars, blocking communications.

Scientists are racing to use the remaining four of Phoenix's eight tiny test ovens before the lander dies. The ovens are designed to sniff for traces of organic, or carbon-based compounds, that are considered the building blocks of life. Experiments so far have failed to turn up definitive evidence of organics.

Our Thoughts...

In an unprecedented week of openness, NASA have amazed Ufologists the world over with the release of thousands of Mars images, and the announcement that there is evidence for contemporary liquid water movement on the Martian surface. The timing of these releases cannot be coincidental, begging the question; is there more to come? Ever since the Viking lander experiments seemed to negate the possibility of life existing on the surface of Mars, scientists have distanced themselves from suggestions that Mars is more than just a dead world. With no evidence to back them, NASA scientists have repeatedly stated that dry river beds seen by Mars Global Surveyor were formed billions of years ago, and that any notion of water flow on Mars in recent times was preposterous. The atmospheric conditions simply would not allow water to exist in liquid form, leaving only theoretical underground reservoirs as potential aqueous environments on the Red Planet.

Yet the new Mars Global Surveyor images, held for so long by Malin Space Science Systems of San Diego, California, lead us in an altogether different direction. With their release comes the announcement of gullies where recent flow of water is evident, along with a new model to explain this anomalous finding. Now NASA are talking “life-on-Mars” again. As Dr Weiler of NASA says in the JPL briefing: “The debate has moved to present-day Mars. The presence of liquid water on Mars has profound implications for the question of life not only in the past, but perhaps even today. If life ever did develop there, and if it survives to the present time, then these land-forms would be great places to look.”

The NASA team say that the incidence of the gullies, which are made up of a deep channel with a collapsed region at its upper end and accumulated debris further down the slope, is ‘quite rare’, only a few hundred locations having been discovered so far. From our viewpoint, that makes these gullies commonplace, given how little of Mars has been analyzed to this degree of detail. They are scattered over the Martian surface, implying that these are points where the waters of Mars bubble up occasionally from immense underground aquifiers. This is eerily reminiscent of the science fiction of Kim Stanley Robinson, in his series of books detailing how humans would terra-form Mars. Since the release of 27,500+ high definition images of the Martian surface by Malin, anomalies researchers have been pouring over the data in the race to find the best evidence yet of intelligent activity on the red planet. We have not had to wait long.

Strange Anomalies That Appear Anything But 'Natural'

‘Cosmic Conspiracies’ are excited with the images contained in these pages: Outstanding images of miles of translucent piping in canyons, structured objects in canyons, bright channels winding through the plains (which seem to contain water or ice), and, exclusively to this site, massive dark land-forms that appear to us as ‘writing’ on the Martian surface, an unbelievably clear shot of a 'Dolphin' or 'Whale' in the mountains of Cydonia, and a 'Dome' and 'Crop Circle'. we think you won't find these images anywhere else on the net (not yet anyway).
Martin, our diligent Internet researcher, has unearthed these remarkable images from literally thousands released by NASA. The dark patches don’t appear to conform to the terrain, in the sense that they should represent shadowing on the landscape, but appear to be random dark areas that, together, give the impression of unknown letters, or words. We aren’t sure what they are, and would welcome ideas. Check these incredible pictures out for yourselves!

So what’s going on here? Are we to believe that NASA had no previous inkling of these anomalous terrain features, including the evidence for the recent movement of liquid water? While the Martian research carried out by anomalies researchers has been largely condemned by NASA scientists, have they really covertly known about this evidence all along? If so, then why is this material surfacing now? What else is being held back? We at ‘Cosmic Conspiracies’ have long argued that the various probes ‘lost’ to Mars may be sending secret information back to a ‘black project’ Mars Mission, over-riding and distorting the findings of civilian NASA scientists. It has been our contention that we have been fed false data, implying that Mars, and the Moon, are lifeless worlds. A tactic designed to bore the public into losing interest in planetary research, and switch attention away from our nearest neighbours. The new evidence seems to bear us out. We refuse to believe that NASA have made a simple mistake with their analysis of Mars up to now. We, with you, await further ‘findings’ with keen interest.

Below we have included a few interesting images which we have discovered while browsing through some of the photographs released by Malin Space Science Systems in June, 2000 (27,500+ images were actually taken on the latest mission!).

These are just a few of the pictures we have found (so far) of MARS which show anomalous objects.

The following pictures have not been tampered with or 'hoaxed'. This is how it appears on the Malin Space Science Systems Website. We have provided a link above so you can go check these images yourself. The glass Tunnels picture is frame #M0400291.

The amazing picture here was recently found by Dr Tom Van Flandern, and received worldwide coverage in the news and media. It seems to show a face with a crown on it. Dr Van Flanderns site also has many other interesting Mars discoveries and I have provided a link at the bottom of the page for anyone interested in visiting his site.

'Nefertiti face': This anomaly shows an amazing degree of detail present. Even features as small as the eyelashes over the eye, visible in the artists inset on the right, are present at the site where this anomaly appears!

The amazing picture above was discovered by Richard Hoagland

This picture is the
original 'Dolphin' anomaly
found on Mars. 

This is meant to represent the 

departure of the Dolphin,
before the arrival of Nibiru!

Surely this 'Anchor-like' anomaly cannot be natural?

The Following Images Were Found On the Malin Mars Pictures Site By Cosmic Conspiracies

Whilst looking through a few of the new Mars Surveyor images released by Malin, we came across this anomaly that looks like a 'crusader' with a sword and shield. The original picture taken by the Mars Surveyor can be seen by clicking on the picture to the right...

This is the original size as it appears on the Malin site

This is an enlargement so that you can see the detail.

This is another picture found on the Malin site which we've called 'The Termite'. Click on the picture to view the original.

This strange 'Dolphin' structure is near the Cydonia region, and was found by us  while looking through the Malin pictures. Again this is an exclusive  to this site!!!  (Click on the picture to view the original MGS shot).

Does this picture show a cigar-shaped craft in a crater?

The Mars Global Surveyor has been very busy of late.  It re-photographed the Cydonia region of the Mars plains on 5th April 1998, a controversial area which includes such apparently artificial structures as The Face, the Fortress, the D&M Pyramid and the City Square.  These highly anomalous structures were originally gleaned from the Viking footage of 1976.  I refer interested parties to the work of Richard Hoagland and colleagues who have reviewed and extended the work of the early Cydonia researchers Messieurs Dipietro and Molenaar .  This issue is a contentious one, for which I don’t pretend to be an expert, but I would like to offer a few observations: The layout of the structures at Cydonia bear mathematical and geometrically accurate relationships to on another the seem well beyond the realm of chance.

The Mariner photographs were taken from the zenith, whereas those released from Global Surveyor were taken from a more horizontal inclination, thereby moving the goalposts considerably. The images from the Global Surveyor were vetted by Dr Malin prior to their arrival on the desks of NASA scientists.
However, the Global Surveyor images were certainly not good news for advocates of artificiality.  They appeared in the media with the air of finality as another “hoaky” (Hoagy?) theory bites the dust.  The conventional media love this sort of thing, because it allows them to exercise the sort of high and mighty judgementalism that is their trademark in dealing with “crank” theories. One-Nil to the officiates of the Space Administration.
