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.
My initial article on the Mars Metronome object as created much controversy with approximately 43% of people polled so far agreeing that the Metronome object is artificial. I have discussed my opinion on various science forums. People have many arguments against the artificiality of the Metronome, but when the 10 key observations are assessed as a whole there doesn’t seem to be any counterargument that holds much weight.
So onto the next anomalous finding …
Many people consider the following 2 features (found in images taken by the Curiosity Mars Rover) to resemble rodents scurrying across a rock face. This is mainly because of the shape of the objects and the tail-looking features protruding from one side. The image below is the image that anomaly hunters first used to identify these objects.
An artists representation of the asteroid Chariklo with its rings
Somewhere between Saturn and Uranus there is an asteroid called Chariklo. With some recent investigations, scientists have discovered that Chariklo has rings. An asteroid with rings, that is what they discovered. Previously it was thought that only big planets like Saturn can have rings but it would seem that scientists were wrong. Study leader Felipe Braga-Ribas said: “We weren’t looking for a ring and didn’t think small bodies like Chariklo had them at all, so the discovery – and the amazing amount of detail we saw in the system – came as a complete surprise.”
An artistic representation of Ceres spewing out water vapour.
Ceres was first classified as an asteroid but upgraded its status to dwarf planet recently. For about 30 years scientists have speculated about whether or not Ceres contains water. Well finally they have their answer.
Ceres is the dwarf planet and largest object in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. When it was first discovered it was only thought to be a massive asteroid. But when scientists discovered that Ceres is shaped like a sphere and that it might have a silicate core and icy exterior its status changed from asteroid to dwarf planet in 2008. Now that scientists have discovered evidence of water on Ceres it is even more planet-like.
The Mars Rover Opportunity must have thought “at last, after 10 years of hard work I finally get rewarded for my efforts”. This wasn’t the case. In fact, Opportunity had discovered some more work for it to do. What looks like a jelly doughnut was in fact a rock, something which is seen a lot on Mars but this one is unique.
It is 4 billion years old and it travelled and landed safely on Earth about 13 000 years ago. The meteorite known as ALH84001 was discovered in the Allan Hills region of Antarctica in the year 1984. The geologists who picked it up at the time didn’t think much of the meteorite. It was only after 10 years of studying the rock that researchers realized that this was a specimen from Mars.
It is a well known fact among the space anomaly hunter community that NASA is deliberately blurring or adjusting all or part of any mars anomalies photos released to the public. This is know by the term: NASA-ty editing. Click on any of the images to see the zoomed version.

5. The sunset on Mars
A seven month journey all the way to Mars was endured by the Mars Rover Spirit. The Spirit’s mission was to find evidence of water in the Gusev Crater which was created ages ago by an asteroid or comet impact. This beautiful photo of a sunset on Mars was taken by the Mars Rover on its way to Gusev from the location known as Husband Hill. Check out this video of the sunset on Mars as captured by the Mars Rover Curiosity.
On April 29, 2007 Alberto Mayer (amateur Astronomer) from Busto Arisizio, Italy found an incredible discovery almost by accident. He says that while adjusting the focus of his telescope that night at 10:52 pm, when he spotted and tracked on video a UFO as it flew across the surface of the moon.
