    Just saw this video of Mars

    I don't know anything about it, but it is on NASA's web site this morning. It shows some vertical structures that resemble "walls". One of these "walls" has a circular shape within.

    EDIT: I went back to re-view the image and I can't find it on the NASA web site, maybe they(I) got hacked. Anyway here is an adjusted link NOT TO a NASA web page.

    EDIT2:Added another view with colorization added.

    It's a tabloid with some guy altering a lossy picture with Photoshop to produce items of pareidolia. There is no location given, any clues to the image blurred and in a story that has extremely bad reporting since they don't do anything but take some CT enthusiasts word.

    So; what is it you want to discuss about it?

    I just thought it was interesting being on the NASA web site. I personally don't believe in subterranean cities on Mars. Although John Carter was an interesting read in my early years.
    What do you think the vertical structures might be?

    A trick of light.

    If you look further down the page where they have the blue tinted insets, two of the panels show it (seemingly) untouched and unrotated. In those pictures the features are much less pronounced and very little height.. The "wall" seems to be a simple ridge in a valley with some kind of fanned out deposit next to it. Turn it upside down, and it looks even more benign.

    umm How did you turn it upside down? My expertise with video doesn't include that bit of imagery. Although I am sure the colored highlights brought sharper features. In one of the links there was an uncolored version, let me look at that again.

    EDIT:
    I assume you mean this image?

    Not being a photo analyst, I can accept your interpretation. With magnification it is too blurry to lead to a complete description, IMHO.

    I wonder if these guys are familiar with Hoagland's "glass tunnels".

    A single flat image can be very misleading, especially if no other context is provided.
