Another shiny object spotted on Mars (video)

Posted on 02/08/2013 7:32:47 AM PST by djf

No doubt in my mind this should be the lead story on MSM news.

Also, no doubt that it is NOT OURS, as it is imbedded in the rock, and it is NOT NATURAL!

If it’s embedded in rock I suspect it’s natural.

Is it too late for me to deny involvement or fault?

Ping, more odd shiny stuff on Mars.

That is strange... you think the old Romans or Eritreans sent probes to Mars?

Its probably a giant surface deposit of silver or platinum.

Earth had them too. Remember, there’s never been anyone on that planet to dig the stuff up!

Mars is a metal rich planet covered with metal rich meteorites.

If I were NASA, I’d have the Rover over there post-haste to make a closer examination.

But it doesn’t look like there is any water up there, so we have to trek on somewhere else!

Croutons!
My personal belief is that they have known there is water and some forms of life on Mars for years.

Maybe that previous Mars lander that NASA turned into an interplanetary lawn dart was Hurst-equipped.

Mars has prongs! It's either:

a) the handle of a hatch leading to bunkers where the Martians stored their preps or,

b) one of Hillary Clinton's marital aids she threw at Bill with such force as to cause it to leave the earth's gravitational field and imbed itself into the Martian topsoil

I’ve seen native copper chunks, native tin, and native crystalline gold.

That thing doesn’t look like any of them. It is machined.

Besides the fact it looks way too irregular to be machined, it is also far too blurry to give any clue it is in any way not natural.

You are seeing what you want to see. It is like a Rorschach test.

Looks like a 1911, probably a Kimber. But why is the barrel embedded in the rock?

Clue #1:
The color does not match the surrounding rock
Clue #2:
The shininess or reflectivity does not match the surrounding rock
Clue #3:
It’s standing up, not laying on it’s side
Clue #4:
It appears to be made of discrete components that were fitted together

I realize it would be a life-altering shock for some people if we were to make this kind of discovery.
But cognitive dissonance cannot negate facts.

Your certainty about what it is (or is not) argues against your being correct in my opinion.

#1-#3 most likely due to it being a mineral deposit of some sort different from the surrounding rock that the rock has weathered away around it.

#4 it is far too blurry of an image to determine that. You are seeing what you want to. It doesn’t look like that at all to me.

It almost looks like a blob of melted metal, possibly from volcanic or asteroid. It is probably the result of one of these and it is much larger than the piece shown here, the top layer of surrounding rock has weathered away from it so it appears to be standing when you are just seeing the tip of it.

What happened to the hyped European Mars probe?

Did it make it to Mars then lost, or it didn’t go that far?

Add on to all that, did you at least look at the source YouTube channel? They traffic in all that kind of BS. They are still spreading the ‘space junk’ video where they claim they are HD images of UFOs and the ‘bases on the moon’ video which are actually screen caps from the movie Iron Sky.

Good grief.

It certainly doesn't look like anything a human would make. It's just a blob from what I see. No machined shape.

I’m thinking there are some analysts at NASA who scour these images looking for anything that looks slightly off and they feed them to these conspiracy sites just to get a laugh at all the retarded reactions.

That is an interesting formation, for sure. I wish there was some scale that could indicate whether it’s 1’ tall or 30’ tall. I wonder if it’s one of the probes we’ve sent there over the decades?

I’ve got a piece of a meteorite here in my office, and wouldn’t be shocked to learn that perhaps meteorites have - in the past - hit Mars.

Kinda looks like it might be something like that.

I would've said something very much like this, but you beat me to it.

It looks like a blob of metal that was in the rock, and the rock has weathered away around it. As someone else said, earth used to have these kinds of things too, but there's no one on Mars to go, "Oooh, me find shiny thing!" It doesn't seem to be the right shape to be anything technological. Nor would it likely be sticking out of a rock in this way.

Well there you go then. That is proof that this is made by aliens who use technology that more resembles amorphous blobs.

Considering the commonplace nature of metallic asteroids, I can’t see why this sort of shiny object wouldn’t be naturally occurring. Unless someone sees a serial number, brand name or patent date, it looks natural, if uncommon, to me.

I think we will find evidence of past like on mars but it will be very primitive. (about as advanced as coral)

I suppose its also possible that some microbial life still exists there but we have to dig a lot deeper than a few inches.
