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.

Images of before and after the rock
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.
