Subject: Detailed images of Mars?

From: Alien Astronomer

Hello List Members:)

Not being an expert in the fields of photography and imaging, but
still someone with 20 20 vision, I'm having a very difficult time
seeing some of these finer detailed structures in the Mars
Cydonia region that many others tend to find without difficulty.
Especially from these totally inadequate garbage images that NASA
feeds us.

Sure, we can all see the larger structures like the tetrahedral
pyramids, the face, and the city, mostly thanks to the 20 year
old Viking images. But for some reason, no matter how hard I try,
I cannot honestly visualize these buildings, ramps, paths, doors,
men's room signs, and everything else that others see without any
I'm not saying they're not their because I really do believe they
are, I just can't tell from these images. And I mean no
disrespect to those of you who do. However, you can show me all
of the pictures you want with circles and arrows and a paragraph
on the back of each one explaining what I'm supposed to see, but
it still doesn't help. And I don't consider myself as your
average Joe Public.

I guess it all really boils down to lousy photography. Wait... I
know... we should all sue NASA for false advertising, just
They did lead us to believe that highly detailed images could
easily be obtained from our not so recent technological advances
in photography. If I remember correctly, several years ago we had
the ability to easily read a license plate from a car or the date
off of a quarter from earth's orbit. What's up?

As far as I can see, and by their own admissions, we should be
able to get images just as detailed as those from Mars
Pathfinder. Images just as detailed as if you were to pick up a
camera and take a picture of something no more than 10 feet away.
Why don't they zoom in for a closer look and put an end to this
controversy once and for all. They can do it. MGS is supposed to
get detailed images with a resolution of about 4 square feet. Why
then do we always see a panoramic view of several square miles?
Why not a panoramic view of 100 - 200 square yards? And why can't
the MGS camera stay fixed on a target for several seconds in
order to zoom in and take a picture at the greatest resolution
possible? They'd have to do it to read that license plate or the
date off of that quarter. No, I don't buy it!
Not for one minute.

Conspiracy? Undoubtedly. THEY ARE DEFINITELY hiding something
from us. They know they can easily fool Joe Public just as
they've been doing for decades. And I think those who have the
ability to see these things from NASA's images and then  try and
show Joe Public the same thing, well... they're playing right
into the hands of the government. Joe looks at these images and
then back at these people and says, "What the hell are you
looking at! There's nothing there!

You must all be crazy!" What do we do? I don't know, do you?

Just a thought.
