Large Disc/Dome-Shaped Object Spotted on Mars North Pole?

The photograph analyzed here (PSP_009663_2635) was taken by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter HiRISE Camera on 18 August 2008. NASA describes the photographs as ‘Crater on the North Polar Layered Deposits.’

I discovered what looks like a large disc/dome-shaped object near the Mars North Pole. The sun seems to be located to the left of the photograph, from the shadow being cast this does not look like a crater at all, instead more like a huge bulge. Also, there doesn’t seem to be a typical crater rim.

I speculate this object might be a dome-like structure or a disc-shaped object with a dome on top that’s covered in sand and snow/ice. The object might even have crashed on the Martian surface when looking at the way the Martian surface material has been pushed to the right.

Could this be an object or structure rather than a typical crater?

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.

Ley lines are mapped as accurately as possible using the limited information, data and mapping tools available at the time, therefore the ley 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.
