This photograph (S1801249) was taken by NASA’s Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) on 2006-05-16T14:29:18.02.
NASA describes this photograph as “Moreux Crater central peak.”
I initially found what looked like a megalithic shape cut into the side of a mound on the Martian surface. It looks rectangular with parallel lines, 90 degree angles and the shadow from two sides indicates depth.
However, after some analysis and feedback from my YouTube Channel viewer Dawn, we came to the conclusion that NASA rotated the photograph by 180 degrees.
Also, the preview image NASA provides for this photograph in Google Earth shows this anomaly looking like a megalith lying inside a crater, this image is correct.
Directly next to the megalithic block there seems to be two underground entrances, i.e. a round opening and a square opening. Some odd pieces of something are scattered around the two entrances.
To the left there is another megalithic looking block with right angles and a 45 degree face.
Dawn furthermore noticed another anomaly I overlooked in my initial analysis. Further up to the right there is another anomaly which looks like either an elaborate doorway or entrance to an underground base or habitat, mangled machine or a broken statue/s.
Where these objects part of a larger monument or structure that was destroyed in a flood decades ago? Perhaps containers/structures and doorways or entrances to an underground base or habitat? They do not appear to have been formed by natural geological processes.

Highlighted in this Curiosity rover image are just a few of the more interesting pieces I’ve selected. You’ll see what looks like pieces of broken ancient statues. Starting left working around in clockwise direction, the first piece looks like a piece of a broken clay jar, then a head of a statue that looks like a fish head followed by a piece with what looks like flanges on both sides and finally a block with a partial spiral cut into it.
I’ve zoomed into the piece that looks like a head of a fish like statue. You will notice the upper and lower part of the mouth, a dimple where the two pieces of the mouth join, an eye to the upper right of the top mouth piece and perhaps nostril type holes located bottom right of the upper mouth piece.
There are many other pieces which I have not covered here; I encourage you to download the original, larger image file and do some anomaly hunting of your own.
An image published by NASA some time ago shows what seems to be a ‘crab’ like creature or plant clinging to a rock face. The image was taken by the Curiosity Rover on Mars.
When viewed in context there are no other objects in the scene that appear to look similar and it definitely stands out. It even has a different colour to the rock, almost orange. What could this be, a life form or just a phenomenon called pareidolia where our brain’s attempt to make shapes out of random objects?
