The Real Mars

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBICMPIIimo&t=19s

Hi, a newbie here.

And l did this video a few years ago, so at least 60% can be ignored, as it upon further analysis, be put down to natural anomalys, reflective rocks and illusions.

But not all can be attributed to these answers.

The water certainly cannot, and was found by me, years before NASA told us that they found saline water flowing down a crater wall, etc.


I tend to scour through Curiosity's images on a regular bases, and will post anything weird when l can.

cool

Re: The Real Mars

Ok, first image for a new forum. smile

Mars has a lot of reflective rocks, most reflect back Curiosity or part of it, and some reflect back stuff, we aren't supposed to see.

iOsDRnR.jpg

This one shows the usual blue sky which Hubble gives us every time it takes an image of Mars, and the middle part is probably the rovers turrent.

I would like to think that the rest is, martain graffiti, but l am sure that it isn't, (well, fairly sure, lol).

cool

Re: The Real Mars

Could be a depiction of a man leaning over to pick up a box, or maybe nothing. But either way an area of ground that is levelled off, on the side of a hill, is fascinating.

Dust from the surface of the red planet paints the sky the same colour.

Re: The Real Mars

Spotted something in the distance.

Two things that seriously look like pyramids, and a building type structure, (l never see one large rock on top of a bigger one on Mars).

31K1pca.jpg

cool

And while l am here, here are some more real Mars images.

Hubble image.

9OXJlsK.jpg

Typical NASA image.

j9VZtNr.jpg
And Curiosity raw image, one of a handful.

And Mars actually has an orange/yellow sunset, (l have scoured through years of Cur, images, and can attest to that).


Although interesting to note that 20 years worth of Spirit and Opportunity rover images, NEVER show a blue sky during the day. A mirky blue is the best. But Opportunity pulls it off after a few years, eventhough color calibration charts are Exactly the same on all three.

3iKG7Bs.jpg

Mars has a sky like ours, as well as other things, and NASA is,.....well, let's just say Pinocho should never get a job there?

Re: The Real Mars

What no one has said welcome to Newmars to a new member Tmcom, you have posted some pretty good images of what a man yearns to see when he sets foot on mars.

As for the far off peaks we will need to wait until we are closer to examine them before speculating as to what they might be.

I am concerned about the tires on the rover as they are getting more beat up every day of hard driving.

Thankyou Spacenut, always nice to be welcomed, and appreciated. smile

True, a distant blurry thing is a risky one to speculate on, but l have never seen a large rock sitting on top of another bigger one on Mars, so...

Curiosity's wheels are fine, metal doesn't deteriorate much, unless there is a lot of moisture about,...ahem.

cool

Re: The Real Mars

Actually they have become brittle due to the cold, are becoming cracked and have some holes in at least one of them...With the nuclear power source I was hoping that it would last a very long time, so hopefully the tires will last that long.

I agree that the peaks are quite different as compared to the remote mountain range behind them which seem enormous...

Ok, that is scary, l tend to stay with the camera turrent ones, not sure how Opportunity and Spirit are fairing, or that their wheels, have that much damage?

Last l heard one is stuck and the other one has issues, but apparently both have red filter issues?

hmm

Re: The Real Mars

Martian face, top, left, impossible to say. A steel tower of some kind, more likely with the shadow it is casting, probably an ancient or current electrical tower.

And the third, probably an alien statue looking back at us. It is very reflective or made of silver, (l have seen a lot of silver metal up there. wink

jyqUqGn.jpg

IG6In5d.jpg

Next one is probably just a shadow of a plant or statue, usual stuff.

cool

PS l have had some dropbox image issues, or they pulled the plug on all of my images, (no fault of mine, just their new TOS). So l will probably do all of the best Mars images as another video, (just too time consuming to do them all again) and possibly remove some links. hmm

Re: The Real Mars

I am sure that the top image is Curiositys reflection. And what is behind it, purple mountains, and green or blue apparently.

Second image down is this thing throwing up some dust. Nothing else including rocks, etc is doing this only this object. Car, generator or something else, but unlikely to be a rock.

Third are these buildings wrapping perfectly around this natural or artificial pond.

UBHPmmc.jpg

The objects may be reflective rocks, but the pond, no.

cool

Re: The Real Mars

Ok, been through all of my images that Dropbox clobbered and l will repost them here. There are about 50 images all up, but l will post as many as l can per post.

That way everyone here, will be as up to date as l am as what actually is there, and what NASA is intentionally hiding.

Ul6ymCW.jpg

An old pot? Sure looks like it with the handle sticking out.

18tVVZw.jpg

A building?

clZzC40.jpg

A panel van driving up a dusty road? The car may be an illusion, but the dust?

DgUu8hi.jpg

Not sure what this is, but it doesn't look natural.

VVz8Cur.jpg

And some things that seriously look like broken vases.

More to come.

cool

Re: The Real Mars

Another road and car, could be.

MTOW8RY.jpg

I have to admit that this is pretty good. A clear, almost transparent dome. This isn't the rovers reflection, as some of the legs are in front of the shadow; it is really images like this that make me wonder why skeptics are so resistant to being open to this.

EUaEHbV.jpg

I am fairly sure that this is a reflection.

lE9jeYJ.jpg

A perfect shape in the rock, Curiosity drills round holes...

ivNBclp.jpg

Hmmm.

Re: The Real Mars

Found all of these white, blocks in the distance, or city. Before that we have these giant tubes spanning something? A road or river, most likely. It is evidence like this that implys that Mars is inhabited now, instead of something that looks pristine for half a million years, (less likely).

qrTCkZp.jpg

Then we have this,....it is reflecting back part of Curiosity, and the wheel on the end is not natural.

G5HLpSl.jpg

These are probably reflective rocks, hmmm. smile

27PG8Q9.jpg

Last one is most likely showing dust devil on Mars, fascinating.

CimJorp.jpg
