Buzz Aldrin recently hinted at the presence of a 'monolith' on Phobos during an interview, now an image taken from NASA's Reconnaissance Orbiter has been revealed to show an unusual square-shaped stone structure on the surface of Mars.

"An image of what appears to be a mysterious rocky monument on Mars has excited space junkies around the world. The 'monolith', was snapped from 165miles away using a special high resolution camera on board the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter."

It is the Marker! The first, physical evidence for the existence of God! Today we mark the beginning of a new religion, Unitology!

The first thing that popped into my head when I saw the picture from far away was the Tardis.

For me this doesn't look like a natural rock formation. Could this be something man-made that has crashed there?

Can you tell me a religion that isn't fictional :P

By the looks of this thing it's huge. I would love to hear some guesses as to it's size.

I agree, it looks like a big rock, which probably was a projectile from a meteor impact.

The shadow, the sides too straight for a boulder.

Hmmm..... :unsure2:

Just get a probe up there to check out, at close range, all the anomalies on Mars. Then the rumours can be put to rest, or something fantastic verified.

i would've liked to play the skeptic this time and say its just a ROCK FORMATION....but it IS really defined with its straight edges, a ratio of how big it is would be appreciated, in reality if WE could control where the probes up there go to, we could easily fin out what it exactly is...sigh*

It looks more like a triangular rock that a square pillar. The reflection could just be angled to cause the illusion of a flat square top. Either way, I don't think a triangular object with edges that sharp and aligned would be natural.

edit: typo

If you look where it stands now, there appears to be a coffin shaped black border on the ground as though that was where it was originally lying down.

Thats what i meant to say in my previous quoted post but couldn't think of the right wordage at the time.

One on Phobos and one on Mars. How many of these are we going to have to discover before it ceases to be a coincidence?
