    I'm not one of those that sees artifacts in every other MGS photos, But these two have me scratching my head.

    The first shows what looks like regular grid lines layed out in almost a street-like pattern.

    This second one also shows something that really looks (at least to me) like something of artificial origin to the right of the large crater.

    Snarf... I loaded the first, and was about to post something on "maybe it is an effect of the groundtrack of the satellite", when the second picture loaded up...

    You're cheating though, Janus. It isn't even April 1st in Oregon yet...

    There's a loon I know who would fall for that. He lives at this location. Complete fruitloop.

    I didn't even know that the Martians knew English.
    Live & learn... :wink:

    You just hit on my one fear, That the first image will start popping up on some of those "Cydonia-nut" web sites.

    Maybe I can post it on one of those crackpotty newsgroups to see their reactions...
    Or would that be too cruel?
