Report #171

The evidence here is going to be from the huge MRO HiRise ESP_012625_1720 JP2 image. Regardless of its JP2 huge file size at 169.8 MB, the evidence will be fuzzy in the closer views. It's the best I could do with it. As this reporting unfolds, you'll perhaps begin to suspect why there are resolution problems in this image. Even so, it is good enough to understand the basics of what is going on here and I think you'll find it sufficiently interesting.

The above first image offers a wide-angle context view of a portion of the original image that the evidence here comes from. The darker areas you see in the above image are variations of the "Ridge Form" life I have reported on before. Please note that some are occupying terrain with the light color horizontal thin ridge structures like levels of mushrooms on an old tree trunk. On the other hand, others are just occupying large patches of terrain without the horizontal ridge levels.

Let me give you some background information that is very important to understanding what is going on here. This site is within
Ius Chasma which is a large steep sided canyon on the southern side of Valles Marineris the largest canyon system in the solar system otherwise known as the Mars great crack. Now Valles Marineris is as deep as 8–10 km or 5–6 miles and that compares to Earth Grand Canyon here in the US of only 1.6 km or 1 mile deep. In other words, in places Valles Marineris is 5–6 times deeper than the Grand Canyon. That's quite a hole in the ground and such a hole guarantees steep slopes on its sides.

When you are looking at the above first image, north and up is in the top of the image and south and down into the Ius Chasma is in the bottom of the image. This orientation is the same and consistent with all of the images in this report. That is important because in these images, although it may not be visually readily apparent, you will always be looking at slopes that may be from mild in places to very steep in other places in a single image in this rough rocky down sloping terrain.

As I have reported before, Ridge Form life flourishes best in shallow flowing water and is a Mars life that is dependent on that condition. They are cooperative sharing life and orient cooperatively in rows parallel with the water flow. So, even though the water is too shallow and thin to be seen in this distant satellite imaging, you know the water flow is there and its direction by the orientation of the Ridge Forms. Any intelligence is an unknown factor.

Note the darker ridge forms and the row orientation of up/down between the light color equally spaced horizontal ridge layers. These equally spaced layers are terraces no doubt designed to retard water which tends to be too substantial in the steeper slope areas and might otherwise be a waterfall. Since the interval space between the terraced ridge levels in relatively short, note that the darker ridge form life can orient as usual in rows parallel to the water flow.

However, in those patch areas where this rough terrain isn't as steep, note that the darker ridge forms collect into density without the implementation of the terraces solution to retard water flow. Rather, if you will look closely in the above image and the closer views below, you will see that there is often still a need to retard the water flow and this is accomplished by darker ridge forms forming a tangle or convoluted maze in their orientations. This of course effectively retards water flow by design.

The point of this reporting is that what ever form of water dependent life this is, it can develop creative design solutions to solving its problems on these steep Chasma slopes. However, planetary geologists working with this space exploration imaging will no doubt tell us that ancient long gone water erosion going down these steep Chasma slopes carved out these formations from layered geological material leaving harder material projecting out and softer material eroded inward. That may sound a little plausible to you? If so, all I can say is look closely at the evidence in the following images and judge for yourself.

In the above 2nd, 3rd and 4th images, note how the darker ridge forms on the equally spaced terraces always tend to be in parallel rows while those without the terraces tend to be more maze like in their configurations. Although blurry, note the uniformity of the darker color evidence. So is this chance geological erosion of layer terrain material or intelligent design typifying life?

Not quite sure what to think? Well the 5th, 6th and 7th images below demonstrate another nearby different section of terrain in this same image strip. Note that here there is an up and down oriented elongated depression precisely filled much more pronounced huge terraces that even have the visual impression of being cantilevered to some degree with some appearing to cast shadows on the terrace below that they overhang. Note that the upper surface of each largest terrace is always densely packed with something upright and in high density.

Unfortunately, the blurry resolution of the original doesn't allow us a better look at the smaller upright densely packed evidence on the top side of each terrace. So we can't determine, for example, if these might be upright structures like dwellings or some giant life form developing multiple layers along the depression water flow route like some form of mushroom colony life with the upright structures acting as filters. On the other hand, for me it is a clear indication of life of some kind and not inanimate geology.

There is just too much uniformity from level to level consistent with adaptive life of the some unknown kind here as opposed to chance geological erosion. However, either way, such analysis is based on the presence of water either currently enabling life or in ancient times eroding geological layers. So, if life is to be considered, is there any evidence of current surface water in this location? As it turns out, there is and the next and last image below defines it.

The above eighth image demonstrates the presence of surface water very nearby in the same image strip. What you're looking at is a shallow depression with crisscrossing forms in it and shallow water among those terracing forms. Water comes into this up and down oriented depression mostly from the water flow eroded land forms on the right and works its way down through and around these terracing forms.

Note that I have pointed out some smaller stepped terraces labeled with yellow text. On this particular terrace, water from the terrace above obviously flows around the left end and then back to the right down the steps I've pointed out that slow the water flow. These are the most visually obvious of such steps in this image but there are others if you will look close.

I have no idea whether these terraces are purely land forms that they look like here or whether they represent the beginnings of the same type of mature terraces we see in the 5th, 6th and 7th images? At this point I'm not concerned with that question so much as I am that this is evidence of current water presence in this same image with all the implications that this has for enabling life.

Obviously surface water is consistently flowing down these Chasma slopes and with canyons in the great crack being as much as 8-10 km or 5-6 miles deep, regardless of any prejudices about Mars dry conditions, this is to be expected and should come as no surprise. The real surprise would be if there was no water at all coming down these slopes. Where there is water there is life and life usually finds a way, especially when it has time to adapt.

You see, these things, although they may seem a bit strange to some at first blush due to unfamiliarity, do not require rocket science mental acuity, only decent eyesight and some common sense unfettered by close mindedness. For the most part, things are impossible only in the psychology of perception while the real world moves on doing its thing.

DOCUMENTATION This links takes you to the official MRO HiRise ESP_012625_1720 science data image. Note that I developed this report's evidence from the JP2 169.8 MB image which requires the free IAS Viewer and you'll have to use that to get the same quality results.

How to Digitally Record/Video a UFO sighting:

Como registar digitalmente ou gravar um vídeo de um avistamento de um UFO:

Stabilize the camera on a tripod. If there is no tripod, then set it on top of a stable, flat surface. If that is not possible lean against a wall to stabilize your body and prevent the camera from filming in a shaky, unsteady manner.

Estabilize a camera com um tripé. Se não tiver um tripé, então coloque-a em cima de uma superfície estável. Se não for possível, então encoste-se a uma parede para estabilizar o corpo e evitar que a camera registe de maneira tremida e instável.

Provide visual reference points for comparison. This includes the horizon, treetops, lampposts, houses, and geographical landmarks (i.e., Horsetooth Reservoir, Mt. Adams, etc.) Provide this in the video whenever is appropriate and doesn’t detract from what your focus is, the UFO.

Forneça pontos visuais de referência para comparação. Isso inclui o horizonte, cimo das árvores, postes de iluminação, pontos de referência geográficos (como o Reservatório de Horsetooth, Mone Adams, etc) Forneça esses pontos no vídeo sempre que for apropriado e não se distraia do que é o seu foco, o UFO/a Nave.

Narrate your videotape. Provide details of the date, time, location, and direction (N,S,E,W) you are looking in. Provide your observations on the weather, including approximate temperature, windspeed, any visible cloud cover or noticeable weather anomalies or events. Narrate on the shape, size, color, movements, approximate altitude of the UFO, etc and what it appears to be doing. Also include any unusual physical, psychological or emotional sensations you might have. Narrate any visual reference points on camera so they correlate with what the viewer will see, and thereby will be better able to understand.

Faça a narração do vídeo. Forneça pormenores sobre a data, hora, local e direcção (Norte, Sul, Este, Oeste) que está a observar. Faça observações sobre as condições atmosféricas, incluindo a temperatura aproximada, velocidade do vento, quantidade de nuvens, anomalias ou acontecimentos meteorológicos evidentes. Descreva a forma, o tamanho, a cor, os movimentos, a altitude aproximada onde se encontra o UFO/nave, etc e o que aparenta estar a fazer. Inclua também quaisquer aspectos pouco habituais de sensações físicas, psicológicas ou emocionais que possa ter. Faça a narração de todos os pontos de referência visual que o espectador irá ver e que, deste modo, será capaz de compreender melhor.

Be persistent and consistent. Return to the scene to videotape and record at this same location. If you have been successful once, the UFO sightings may be occurring in this region regularly, perhaps for specific reasons unknown, and you may be successful again. You may also wish to return to the same location at a different time of day (daylight hours) for better orientation and reference. Film just a minute or two under “normal” circumstances for comparison. Write down what you remember immediately after. As soon as you are done recording the experience/event, immediately write down your impressions, memories, thoughts, emotions, etc. so it is on the record in writing. If there were other witnesses, have them independently record their own impressions, thoughts, etc. Include in this exercise any drawings, sketches, or diagrams. Make sure you date and sign your documentation.

Seja persistente e não contraditório. Volte ao local da cena e registe o mesmo local. Se foi bem sucedido uma vez, pode ser que nessa região ocorram avistamentos de UFOs/naves com regularidade, talvez por razões específicas desconhecidas, e talvez possa ser novamente bem sucedido. Pode também desejar voltar ao mesmo lugar a horas diferentes do dia (durante as horas de luz)para ter uma orientação e referência melhor. Filme apenas um ,inuto ou dois em circunstâncias “normais” para ter um termo de comparação. Escreva tudo o que viu imediatamente após o acontecimento. Logo após ter feito o registo da experiência/acontecimento, escreva imediatamente as impressões, memórias, pensamentos, emoções, etc para que fiquem registadas por escrito. Se houver outras testemunhas, peça-lhes para registar independentemente as suas próprias impressões, pensamentos, etc. Inclua quaisquer desenhos, esbolos, diagramas. Certifique-se que data e assina o seu documento/testemunho.

Always be prepared. Have a digital camera or better yet a video camera with you, charged and ready to go, at all times. Make sure you know how to use your camera (and your cell phone video/photo camera) quickly and properly. These events can occur suddenly, unexpectedly, and often quite randomly, so you will need to be prepared.

Esteja sempre preparado, Tenha sempre uma camera digital, melhor ainda, uma camera vídeo consigo, carregada e pronta a usar sempre que necessário. Certifique-se que sabe como lidar com a sua camera (ou com o seu celular/camera fotográfica) rápida e adequadamente. Esses acontecimentos podem acontecer súbita e inesperadamente e, por vezes, acidentalmente, por isso, necessita estar preparado.

Look up. Be prepared. Report. Share.

Olhe para cima, Esteja preparado, Relate, Partilhe.
