'Artificial Wooden Plank' Found On Mars

Strange artifacts continue to be found on Mars. From Richard Hoagland’s Cydonia complex of pyramids and other ancient structures, to the infamous ‘Face’ and oddball objects like bits of machined metal, tools, and incredible ‘robot’ parts.

Now a researcher at the website has discovered NASA photos that seem to reveal a very high resolution image of a cut and shaped plank of wood lying on a dry Martian lakebed. Curiously, the way the plank was fashioned it appears it might have been used as part of an old wooden sailing vessel

More mysteries

Mars has always been an enigma. The ancients revered it and the Romans named it for their god of war. A planet slightly smaller than ours with a landscape reminiscent of the American Southwest, the geology of Mars is both Earthlike and alien.

But the true mysteries that intrigued some researchers for a long time include:

1. The possibility of the Red Planet’s two moons being artificial;

2. A strange monolith on the Martian moon Phobos;

3. Evidence that Mars may have been a large inhabited moon once orbiting a giant gas planet in the region of what’s now the asteroid belt—when that planet experienced a catastrophic explosion, Mars almost split in two and was flung across space into its current orbit.

Many researchers accuse NASA of covering up evidence and recently an imaging process was discovered that removes parts of an image as if they weren’t theresomething NASA may find handy if they really are doctoring any images.

Sir Arthur C. Clarke believed trees are growing on Mars

Modern day mysteries abound with the arrival of planetary space probes and robot explorers: intriguing “glass” tubes that extend for miles above and below ground (NASA says they are windswept dunes); and what famed futurist and science fiction writer Sir Arthur C. Clarke adamantly asserted are gigantic banyon-like trees near the frigid Martian South Pole.

The wildly controversial Martian ‘glass tubes’

Now another bizarre mystery can be added to the growing list: what appears to be a piece of well-crafted timber sitting in plain view on the surface of an ancient lakebed photographed in startling detail by the Mars rover, Opportunity.

Ahoy there

Although the researcher draws the conclusion that the wood was torn from one of the South Pole trees and washed to the plain where it now rests via a massive flood, close inspection reveals that if the object is wood it’s likely petrified. It was also sawed and carved or sanded near one end to create a shallow curve—similar to a plank on the side of a sailing ship from the 16th or 17th Centuries.

The wooden plank may once have been part of an ancient Martian sailing vessel that came to a bad end. How long ago the tragedy occured no one may ever know. The wooden plank may have been sitting where it is now for uncounted eons.

      I was always skeptical about all these Mars Rover photos but I think this is the most convincing yet!

      • Ozzie_Thinker

        The cat is “out of the bag” friend. Globalists have red faces and they may as well shut down the mission now.

    • Texasflower

      So, are those tracks from the Rover rolling over it?

      • Brutal

        i was wondering the same

      • rudrdude

        What tracks? Your seeing something I don’t. It looks like a railroad tie to me…..Where’s the train? :cool:

    • Djedi

      The first Mars ‘anomaly’ that actually looks like what it’s purported to be!

    • CosmicKiwiPerth

      In regards to the planet that is now the asteroid belt, Venus spinning in reverse, an outer planet spining on its equator… Have a read of D.S.Allen & J.B. De Lair excellent book called “The day the earth nearly died” how a rogue object that causaed havoc all through the solar system @ 9500B.C. (except Jupiter which was around the other side as this object came through) It caused the great flood by pulling all the water from southern regions to the north. A scientific read though quite able to be taken in. Plenty of second hand copies available from usual sources..


        Quite so
        Another good site to read regarding this is

      You cannot expect Hollywood to be perfect every time so get on and enjoy the movie you are watching and stop looking for fault.

      Why was it again we never went back to the moon or could it be we now have telescopes today that would prove it one way or another.

      This money ends up in black projects and those being it are laughing at joe public

      Looks like a rodent to me

      Mars appears to have been destroyed by the rebelling angels that passed by on their way to take over the throne of God. Only the earth still has life, the rest was wiped out by demons.

      • taweet

        agree with that

    • BrianFraser

      Artificial wooden plank? Really?

      There appear to be more “planks” at the upper center in the (hi-res) NASA photo. There might even be a FACTORY for the planks above that! Of course, it was disguised as an outcropping of flat rocks seen edgewise. How clever of those ancient Martians!

    • inkling

      I reckon there are more planks in NASA! :lol:

    • Joerg Klaemt

      There is always the possibility that these Objects originated from Earth 1st second or third Civilization and when an asteroid had hit the earth a whole lot of earth debris was blown off into outer space, some of it finally settling on Mars and other on the Moon, while other debris may still drift in the universe? Although I think Mars had at one time an equivalent earth environment and the Zionists destroyed it while a few settled on earth and are repeating what they are known for. God help us all.

    • Str8Talker

      Kinda looks like the Salt Flats out west… the old lake beds that get all dried up and flaky like the photo above. And once again… black & white? Really? And why shoot an object that important from 10 feet away when they practically kiss boring rocks at point blank range?
      It’s funny… with the space shuttles moth-balled, only the so-called Mars expeditions are keeping NASA going as far a taxpayer funds. They gotta put on a good “show” real or not if they want to keep their jobs. It’s a whole lot cheaper to fake this whole thing on Earth than send it to Mars. Don’t let these clowns ruin yet another generation of space dreamers like they ruined ours.
      We shot for the moon… moonbases and revolving space stations… and achieved a low orbital shuttle and a cramped ISS station instead used exclusively by a few. WHY DO WE FUND THIS? Everytime we asked for the truth… we get distractions or disinformation. It’s time to shut down NASA once and for all by defunding it. We never get straight answers anyhow.

    • terry the censor

      Careful, lads. These could be like the “timbers” from Noah’s Ark that, up close, turned out to be a pile of rocks. (See Bob Cornuke, “Ark Fever”)

    • whitebear

      I recognize that. It’s a rib from Noah’s ark.
      That’s a lot of water.

    • explicit

      i jsut glanced at the original.. top left side doesnt that look like something is in water? and also little wake waves as if where the rover is the shoreline? idk but to me it looks like its an ocean on the top left right behind the rover. :idea:

    • Lisafer

      Given how much NASA photoshops out the interesting parts of their images, I’m ever so surprised to see they forgot to photoshop the wood out. LOL!! They must have either forgotten their lies over the years hahaha or someone wasn’t paying attention when photoshopping out the little green men. There appear to be tracks leading up to it, any thoughts? Could be my eyes or wishful thinking :razz: Also, I notice something shiny in the background, any ideas anyone?

    • whitebear

      Upon second glance it looks like a railroad tie.

      The white line behind is where another once was before it was picked up for use in a landscaping project.

      Hey a railway ‘sleeper’ on Mars – how cool – wonder where the trains are – and did they run on time ? The crazy bastards who now rule the planet figured that only ‘propellor-heads’ would take any interest in this and being propellor heads would circle-jerk to every frame. The crazy cabal figured that the rest would be too fat and lazy to care. So, end result ? Billions and billions channelled out of the government coffers in the name of a totally fake mission – and where will all that loot go ? Well it will be used for survival holes deep underground – for the chosen few. And you ask why ‘they’ are closing caves and other potential survival locations – ‘they’ dont want any uninvited scum left to deal with after the big EVENT.

    • BeastLee

      LOL ok so there were trees on mars… lol that is so awesome.. how else is wood going to be on there??? lol this is great
