When you first look at this picture, your mind won’t comprehend it. You may just dismiss it as a rock because the collective human consciousness constrains itself to whatever reality it has created up to a point in time. I myself did not understand the impact of this photo at first. It was just another Mars picture with alot of rocks in it. You see the object thats out of place, but you don’t know what it is or comprehend it. It is outside your understanding of reality and your mind makes it slightly invisible. But it is there … look again. It has taken me 7 years and I’m still absorbing the greater meaning of this photo. I keep returning to it and thinking: What is it? I try to find reasons to why this thing cannot be something created by an extraterrestial being and all those possible reasons are very weak arguments. And so the question is answered – we are not alone as a sentient creature in this strange place we call the Universe.

To me, this is the most important photograph of our times. The message it conveys is no less important than when Copernicus stated that the Earth revolves around the Sun and not the other way around.

Alien Artifact: The metronome anomaly

Alien Artifact: The metronome anomaly

I believe that this image is a manufactured mechanism that was most probably manufactured by an alien intelligence. The reason why I say that its mechanical is the inclusion of 90 degree angles (right angles) in the design. People have likened it to a Metronome (metronome). Other people have compared it to an aeroplane tail. I suggest printing the above image out on an A4 page, take a ruler and pencil and draw on the straight edges that you can see. You will soon realise that this object is far from natural.

This object was initially discovered by Kevin J. Brant and popularized by our very own modern day Copernicus ( Mr Joseph P. Skipper ) (www.marsanomalyresearch.com)

Sceptics would say this is a crashed earth probe, but it matches no known part from any human space probe. Other sceptics say that there are rocks that look man-made which are created by nature. Here are some examples:

Natural hexagonal rocks

Natural hexagonal rocks

The naturally formed straight edge rocks form in fractal formations, appearing in clusters. The anomaly presented above appears as a standalone anomaly. In fact, no other image from Mars that has been published look even remotely similar.

Research Methodology

Our aim is to efficiently use whatever electronic information is available to us to give our opinion on this object. For the purposes of this study we shall examine the images of the object provided by NASA to extract as much meta information as possible and then translate this information into a 3 dimensional graphical representation of the object. This process is hindered by the low quality of NASA images provided. Even so, there is a percentage of electronic information still available no matter how distorted it is. There is a degree of interpretation involved in the translation from 2 dimensional to 3 dimensional image. This is dependent on the artist involved. If you wish to submit your own graphical interpretations of what you perceive the object to be. We used Inkscape and Blender to arrive at our models. It may be possible to algorithmically arrive at a averaged out version of what the object looks like using everyone’s submitted Blender models. Please feel free to put your comments (good and bad) and discuss the likelihood of this object being an alien artifact in the comment section below. You can also submit your blender models using the comment function below.

  • Identify edges of the object algorithmically using GIMP graphic tool
  • Trace out edges manually (in Inkscape) using vectors ontop of the image based on interpretation of the image and the edge detected images
  • Get various 3D artists to use the images, edge detections and manually traced vector diagrams to develop a 3D model
  • If at all possible, use statistical modelling and reporting tools to average out a large number of 3D representations in a common data format

Current Analysis

Various edge detection algorithms in GIMP (a free opensource graphics tool)

Edge detection refers to the mathematical methods aimed at identifying points in a digital image where the image brightness changes sharply (has discontinuities). What it helps us achieve is a clearer understanding of the details in an image based on mathematical algorithmic processing of the information available in that image. I the case of the Mars Metronome, it helps to identify the irregular prism shape that makes up the upper part of the object. It also gives us visibility of the prongs and vents at the base.

Manually tracing polygons on the images

After analyzing the edge detail, I manually traced vectors on both the images. I deliberately left out the tear-drop element at the top of the irregular prism shape because I interpret this to be the top of the prism that has melted/corroded and re-solidified rapidly to for a tear-drop shape. I have ignored the sand build-up on the image set on the right to highlight the distortion effect of the sand.

  1. Can the size of the artifact be calculated relative to surroundings, if so, what are its dimensions? Is this a large structure? Angles, distance, altitude ?
    Is the location retrievable, are there other probes, or satellites that can investigate ??? Is this important ? Or insignificant when compared to other evidence, perhaps unknown by the general public ???

    • I’m working on it. I don’t have enough information yet, but I plan to take this investigation into as much detail as I can with the available data. I will publish any data on dimensions as soon as its available.

  2. ly there are may such so called intelligently designed objects which exist from previous ‘times’. To me its not a problem. Conscoiusness is more problematic. We all lived in some space or time before what we ‘coin’ now.

  3. Hi, this object is without question an object of intelligent design and manufacture, i cannot begin to speculate what it is, however it does remind me of a rubber flanged boot that you would find around a floor mount gear shift lever or hydraulic levers or controls on earth moving equipment. If this object is not man made then we need to open our minds and stop kidding ourselves about being unique in the universe, this sort of ignorance is mostly a product of the church and its attempt to brainwash us for about the past one thousand years or so. I think it is not unrealistic to say that mars was once a living planet that could have had an abundance of life on it.

  4. I SUGGEST EVERYONE WHO IS A CHAMPION OF TRUTH TO READ THE NEW BOOK, “A.D. AFTER DISCLOSURE”, JIM MARRS, DR. STEPHEN GREER, MAJ. DONALD KEYHOE, AND “ALL” THOSE WHO, LIKE THIS RESEARCHER, HAVE THE COURAGE TO BRING THE *TRUTH TO LIGHT*.THE PUBLIC “NOW” HAS A RIGHT TO KNOW, OUR VERY SURVIVAL ON ‘THIS’ PLANET DEPENDS ON IT; I APPEAL TO THOSE THAT I KNOW ARE READING TO MOVE THE DATE UP FOR DISCOSURE TO JAN 1 2015>A.D. 1 “TO SIN BY SILENCE WHEN TRUTH SHOULD BE SHOUTED FR”OM” THE MOUNTAINTOPS, makes cowards out of men and women! >MAY THE FULL TRUTH SET US ALL FREE.

  5. Hi people, i have been surfing the internet looking for other sites and information similar to what is on this site, the amount of stuff is staggering! After reading Truths post i typed Stephen Greer’s name and got the Sirius disclosure site, after listening to a dozen or so interviews i logged off the internet and just sat there dumbfounded, how could such things be kept from the worlds population for so long? As i was listening to the interviews there was one consistent factor in all of them, they were all telling the truth! Sooner or later all this stuff will come to the light of day, it is inevitable, the governments as well as the church will have to tell the truth,oh and lets not forget NASA!!

  6. BOM POSSO DIZER QUE TUDO QUE É NOVO NOS IMPRESSIONA PORQUE SAI DO NOSSO CONHECIMENTO DE QUE A NASA SE SOUBESSE DE ALGO ASSIM ALERTARIA TODA POPULAÇÃO PORQUE ELES SÃO OS MAIS AFETADOS ,DESTA HISTORIA.,NÃO DIGAM NADA PARA NÃO PASSAR VEXAME DO QUE NÃO FEZ,

  7. The moment I saw the image I recognised it as a artificial mechanical metal object. If Mars hadn’t been extremely important for reasons known to NASA why would Phoenix Mars Lander be sent followed by Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity? Now, it is reported that exactly 100 days from today, the Mars Orbiter Spacecraft, India’s first interplanetary mission, is scheduled for a rendezvous with the Red planet. On September 24, the spacecraft is expected to reach the Mars. Later, Mars One is said to launch the first unmanned mission in 2018 with the intention of establishing a permanent human settlement on Mars by 2024. Also, China has drawn up a technical plan for an independent Mars orbiter exploration project.

    For how long can the general public be kept in the dark, the truth has to come out one day, and hope that day is drawing closer much to the discomfort of the alleged infamous agencies/organizations.

  8. what i saw in the picture is that .it seems to be real in physical condition but still unexplainable ,i personally believe that naturally that is rock,& there are so may types of samples exist in our earth,but need to show behind the true sense .

  9. I personally think that humans have been on the earth for more than several hundred thousand years and they have been to the moon and back and on Mars more than once and the things that they are finding on the Moon and Mars are not being told to us because they are proof of mans earlier technological capabilities in fifty thousand years man will go back to the moon and find the rover and they won’t tell anybody about it then either….

  10. Mar’s rover’s flash memory to be formatted. That’s the latest. Why do they need to do that…for whatever reasons they tell inhabitants of ‘this’, there is room to think…’have they found or seen something, which should not reach us…and so the memory needs to be erased?

    • I didn’t think of that. I do agree that flash drive is quite stable for years. Maybe radiation impacted it and formatting might help … or maybe you are right about further information hiding.

  11. Whenever spacecrafts are sent out, the equipments are tested and re-tested for the harsh conditions they might be subjected to. Yes accidents do occur…but to format a flash memory…millions of miles away. Dont they have back up. I have my apprhention.

  12. Yesterday, The Times of India….a flight of Etihad Airlines from Abu Dhabi to Bombay had its alarms ringing in the cockpit. These were alarms when another aircrafts gets too close in the air… within 500 m. When the aircraft got in touch with ATC at Bombay, the ATC did not ‘see’ any other aircraft on the radar. Similar alarms were sounded on most nearby flying aircrafts.
    Enquiry has been set up. One immediate explanation given was — might be an American fighter plane was flying by. The USA has a base in the Indian ocean. But point is the Eitihad flight was at 36000 ft and military fighter planes do not fly that high. (This too was mentioned in the report). First of all if nothing was seen on radar, why are we assuming that it was another plane and if the alarms were ringing in the cockpits of all the nearby flights then what was flying so close to them.

  13. I voted for an artificial metal structure. To be absolutely honest, I’m not absolutely sure that the “metronome” is exactly that, yet it looks more artificial than natural. There are so many solid celestial bodies, i.e., planets, satellites, etc. that it seems quite natural for me to think and state that our Earth isn’t the only inhabited celestial body among millions, billions, and perhaps trillions of previously mentioned ones; the real difficulty isn’t to imagine that but to know where those bodies are located or how far from us they really are. . .
