Rover finds figure on Mars.... sort of.

The Register has an article up about a "figure" discovered on Mars by the rovers. Very tongue in cheek writeup. I'm putting it here (at risk of getting offed to humor) because there is some serious debate as to what the figure is.

I think it looks like bigfoot from the PG film. Or a pattern in the sand.

Nope, my immediate thought was echoed by the second comment left on the site. The Copenhagen Mermaid. Obviously built by an ancient civilization that later departed mars and settled Denmark.

And here's the original source . I'm having trouble making anything out, but I'm sure the spotters out there will have no difficulty.

I still think it looks like bigfoot. Bigfoot doing Tai Chi.

Well if anyone wondered why we never come across Bigfoot carcasses, now we know...Bigfoot goes to Mars to die.

There can be no doubt the picture is Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, The Lamb of God's own Mother, the Blessed Virgin Herself.

Blessed be the Name of Our Lord Jesus the Christ.

It's the diminutive mermaid, four inches tall. Or short, if you prefer. The Copenhagen mermaid is small, but not this small.

I had to laugh at this:

Quote:
ccording to Mars expert, J. P. Skipper, this particular Mars scene is evidence of image tampering by NASA, "For me, what makes this even more reportable as anomalous evidence even more than its general look is the fluffy image tampering applications clustered around the base of the object. This darker bulky obscuring area isn't rocks and/or shadow as one might at first presume, it is image tampering giving it this false bulky look in those spots." Skipper continued, "Note the diffuse fluffy fuzzy quality that are these darker tampering areas. This is typical of false artificially added information as compared to real solid particulate surfaces like the real ground level bone (skull) or artificially worked statue head material that are of course as hard surfaces much more solar light reflective. For me, it is these image tampering applications partially obscuring this object that gives much more credence to this being something someone did not want us to be able to adequately recognize."
Sure. NASA covers up the bottom part of the 'skull' to hide it. WTF? Are people THAT bored with their lives that they have to invent this stuff, or are they just seriously so lacking in judgement. Worse still, they're given air time (er, text time) by other morons who have no ability to think.

As for the Martian Sasquatch, I wonder what he's pointing at.

I agree.

These things are always the Virgin Mary, aren't they?

Sheesh!

Perhaps it's a tiny Hoagland - now wouldn't that be something

I'm not going to check Enterprise Mission until I get off work. Have you, and if so, has he commented?

Ach, I watched to much TV this morning and my time on line is limited. Perhaps I'll risk chastizement at work and check it out tonight (CST).

Hey, and are you familiar with Grafenwoehr? I used to visit Nuremburg to get my braces tightened since we didn't have an orthodontist at my dad's base.

Immediately below is a wider view of the photo in true colors that may put things in better perspective. It includes a part of the rover’s solar panel. NASA says the hill that is dotted with rocks and is seen just above the center is about 30 meters away. Across the bottom third or quarter of the photo is the edge of the plateau on which the rover is sitting. Near the left end of the photo on the plateau edge is the object of interest. It appears to be a couple of meters away and a couple of centimeters in height.

The bottom image gives a closeup view. NASA should instruct the rover to give the poor little man a few drops of water. He’s probably dehydrated from wandering the planet for millions of years in search of a mate.

You made the news, and it seems your explanation is winning.
