Stonehenge-style rocks spotted on Mars: Bizarre circular stone formation on the red planet resembles the iconic Pagan site

Also other strange phenomenon

Not exactly sci-fi but related. Could be the inspiration for some good (and many bad) stories!

________________________________

I hate to be a wet blanket, but I'm not overly impressed with this "discovery". The "Stonehenge" rocks look mildly curious from a distance —







— but not very interesting up close.





The red lines which form two off-center circles and a lopsided square just look like desperate attempts to find symmetry where none existence.

Here's an excerpt from the article at Eadie's link.
________________________________

Picture Caption: A stone circle that has been compared to Stonehenge has been spotted in images sent back by a spacecraft orbiting the red planet. Dubbed 'Marshenge', alien hunters have seized on the images but experts say it could be created by natural processes which cause rocks to be 'sorted' in freeze and thaw cycles of permafrost

From floating spoons and coffins to crabs and pyramids, alien hunters are often reporting strange structures in images beamed back from the surface of Mars.

Now, the latest 'discovery' seen using high-resolution images of the Martian surface, a mysterious circle of stones have been spotted on top of a raised mound on the planet.

Dubbed 'Marshenge', alien enthusiasts have been comparing it to the famous stone circle at Stonehenge in Wiltshire, England.

Eadie is right when she says this whole thing could be the inspiration of a good (or bad) story. But it sure isn't a "discovery" proving there was life on Mars.
