Devastating Landslide in Xanthe Terra on Mars

A quick update on the Elongated Cloud photographed by Mars Express (ESA) as well as a massive Martian landslide photographed by HiRISE (NASA).

The landslide shown here is approximately 1.5 km long and 500 metres wide and it shows possible evidence of liquid water in the area some time ago.

The boulders are huge and have random sizes and shapes and are perfect examples of what natural boulders look like, they look nothing like the megalithic blocks with knobs or features on their surfaces as I have shown in previous Blog posts or YouTube video’s.

There is one anomaly that I found that looks unnatural, the artefact looks like a small rectangular metal plate next to a larger rectangular artefact.

Also shown here are tracks left by rolling boulders/rocks as well as possible evidence of some type of vehicles leaving tracks in these sand. Some tracks intersect each other and abruptly change direction.

Images saved from within HiView or CTX viewer do not include image scale indicators. The image scale indicators I include in images are based on the official resolutions provided by NASA and although I strive to be as accurate as possible there may be slight deviations from the actual scale. Image scale indicators are included as a size approximation tool only.

Geometry lines are mapped as accurately as possible using the limited information, data and mapping tools available at the time, therefore the lines may deviate from target sites by a few kilometres. Revisions may be made in the future as new, more precise information, data and mapping tools become available.

Many or all of the anomalies/artefacts covered in this presentation may be naturally occurring geological features caused by some type of geological processes, however due to the lack of specific information from the source we can only speculate whether these are all natural or some artificial in nature.

In cases where I say an anomaly looks like something I’m attempting to clarify what I see and not specifically that the anomaly is what I say it looks like.

My intention is only to share anomalies I’ve discovered on Mars and not to convince anyone that there is or was a civilization on Mars.

As Will Farrar from WhatsUpInTheSky says: “I see what I see, you see what you see.”
