In an image of Mars taken by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, you can see what at first glance would appear to be a crashed disk on the surface along with the trace of the accident left behind it.
The unique virtual find was recently published by researcher Jean W̳a̳r̳d on his YouTube channel.
“Here I present an anomaly that I discovered at the Ceti Mensa site in the Valles Marineris region.”
“It looks like a disk-shaped object that hit the surface of Mars at a very low angle and left a trench behind.”
“The disk-shaped object measures approximately 12 to 15 meters in diameter,” describes W̳a̳r̳d, who alternatively considers that it could also be “a ramp leading to an underground entrance.”
“As always, until we see these anomalies up close and personal, I can only speculate what these objects might be,” he adds.
Regarding the photographed place, it should be noted that Valles Marineris is the name of a gigantic system of canyons that runs along the equator of the planet Mars just east of the Tharsis region.
Its name is a tribute to the NASA probe Mariner 9, which discovered this important feature of the Martian surface on its orbital flight from 1971-1972.
Its dimensions are colossal, being 4500 km long, 200 km wide and 11 km deep, reaching a quarter of the equatorial circumference of the planet.
The image where the anomaly is found can be seen on the official NASA site dedicated to the MRO HiRISE camera.
