Hi,
In the light of image-curiosities, I though posting this to the board would be a nice addition in our collection of Martian woo-woo topics.
I havenít come across this image before.
The two features to look for are:
- A landing platform (or a giant bottle opener for that matter)
- An arc like structure further down and right from the landing platform

I am sure there are plausible explanations available.

I see 6 faces, including a winking grey and a horned demon. There's also a full bodied floating-jesus with halo in the lower left corner. Don't see a landing platform, where is it?

I can see where Planet X crashed into Elvis' dome. :wink:

Versions of this image have been floating around the Net for years. The "landing platform" has sometimes been known by the nickname "The Bunker." I don't think it's been re-imaged since that one was taken. Just off the top right of the rectangle indicating the Bunker is a high-albedo feature that has attracted a lot of attention, with some saying it appears to be raised off the surface.

I've never seen any geological explanations for its intriguing shape, plausible or otherwise.
