What is this thing on Mars?Submitted by fishyculture on Wed, 12/12/2012 - 22:00
Could be computer glitch, it does not seem to register any altitude, but it looks like it is reflecting light off the top surfaces, so it could be there. Unfortunately, I cannot hop over to Mars and see for myself, but I can invite you to google earth to see what I am looking at.
There is a tab on google earth that lets you pick earth, sky or Mars. Pick Mars. (The icon look like Saturn.)
Then put "Puyo" in the location search. It will take you to a crater, looks a little like a hieroglyph for a bird once you back up a bit. Back up until you see another marker for "Puyo" at about the 11:00 position. Back out / reposition until you can see two lines, looking a bit like ridges but more like computer paste spots between images, one line runs through Puyo crater and the other runs through a dark blob to the right and above Puyo crater. Follow the dark blob down the "ridge" to a point straight across from the "Puyo" marker and zoom in. The coordinates are

I mean, I don't know and I know you probably don't know either, but WTF is that?
Kudos to this guy for finding it and posting it:
