‘Monolith’ Object On Mars?

(Before It's News)

There are other so called monoliths on Mars.  There was the face on Mars of course and none of these ever panned out.  This image however, looks pretty genuine enough to me.  Of course it could just be a rock shaped like a monolith but that wouldn’t spark the imagination as much would it?

Amateur stargazers have discovered an intriguing object jutting out from the surface of Mars. The seemingly perfectly rectangular, upright structure, found in NASAimages of the Red Planet, bears a striking resemblance to the monoliths planted on Earth and the moon by aliens in the classic sci-fi film “2001: A Space Odyssey.”

The object in question was first spotted several years ago after being photographed by the HiRISE camera onboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, a NASA space probe; every so often, it garners renewed interest on the Internet. But is it unnatural — a beacon erected by aliens for mysterious reasons, and even more mysteriously paralleled in the imaginations of Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke, creators of “2001″? Or is this rock the work of nature?

    WOW!!! It does look just like the monolith in the 2001 space oddity movie! Wonder if the martians saw it in a theater or do they have cable or satelite? :) Seriously though it is really interesting stuff.

  • whitebear

    For a moniker such as “don’t be hating” you sure seem to be antagonistic in the face of the conspicuous.

  • Odd Job

    I’m still reeling from the impending challenge of formulating a response to such an intellectually stimulating reply….

    At least he managed to spell “crap” correctly

  • RAINSCRYPT

    hehe, fun to say though.. “crap”. ;p

  • Earthmuffin33

  • Reaper

    one monolith! the face on mars didnt pan out! thats a crock, that planets so scattered with ancient artifacts/buildings/pyramids/sphinxes/tunnels/etc/etc that its beyond mind boggling. DARK MISSION, The Secret History of NASA by hoagland/bara explains the truth of the moon/mars missions in engineering quality, scientific detail. everything NASA has ever told the public is at best a partial truth or a complete lie.
    NASA-Never A Straight Answer the motivation to attack iran is based on their attempts to tame plasma physics which is directly related to the hyperdimensional physics logarithm found in the architecture of the cydonia temple complex next to the face on mars. oh yeah, this dude says that didnt pan. sorry, you’re way behind the curve mort.

    Who says the face didn’t pan out? Why, because you can’t see it? In fact it turns out that it’s not one face, but two. The face on mars is half cat, half hominid.

    (Psst… Just like our Sphinx here on Earth which is located where? Egypt. Capital of which is named what? Cairo. Which when translated to English means? Mars!)

    Check out this video I made where I simply lay what’s on one half of the face, onto the other. Fascinating really.

    I also noticed and subsequently made a video about a human skull rock formation in the same region that you’d probably not be interested in but it has eye sockets, teeth, and sutures, references to the seams on our skull.

    Mars was once teaming with life and I’d go so far as to say that half of what we are today in this meat suit came from the life that once lived there on the red planet Mars…

    Its the now closed Martian Gulf Gas Station’s Price sign.

    The look over here, look over there, gooberment misdirection, is like a Sigfried & Roy show, until the tiger strikes.

    Lets worry about $4buck a gallon gas, health care for our elderly, our vets coming home safely, and the lack of jobs in the USA…

    Soon it will be food sources, and tainted or limited water supplies, followed by interment camps, and war in the middle east…

    While we are looking up at the sky, they are picking our pockets clean, and saying “we can do better”
