you may or not be amazed with these pictures taken on Mars
and now being shared with those intrested...
amazing and awesome...
especially the "blueberries"...and the solid "water"...it sure looks to me, like they landed in the middle of a dried up ocean...even the probe leaves "muddy" trails in some of the pictures...and the colors...are breath taking

so the ares-humans who left mars and came here... the ones James said with a little costmetic touch-up they can pass for terra-humans were actually early egyptians?

Ice lake found on the Red Planet
A giant patch of frozen water has been pictured nestled within an unnamed impact crater on Mars.
The photographs were taken by the High Resolution Stereo Camera on board Mars Express, the European Space Agency probe which is exploring the planet.
The ice disc is located on Vastitas Borealis, a broad plain that covers much of Mars' far northern latitudes.
The existence of the water-ice patch on Mars raises the prospect that past or present life will one day be detected.
It also boosts the chances that manned missions could eventually be sent to the Red Planet - because they would probably need accessible water to survive.
The highly visible ice lake is sitting in a crater which is 35 km (23 miles) wide, with a maximum depth of about two km (1.2 miles).
Scientists believe the water-ice is present all year round because the temperature and pressure are not sufficient to allow it to change states.
Researchers studying the images are sure it is not frozen carbon dioxide (CO2), because CO2 ice had already disappeared from the north polar cap at the time the image was taken.
The team has also been able to detect faint traces of water-ice along the rim of the crater and on the crater walls.
Mars is covered with deep gorges, apparently carved out by rivers and glaciers, although most of the water vanished millions of years ago.
Earlier this year, the European Space Agency detected what they called a huge "frozen sea", but it is located below a crust of surface deposits.
Large reserves of water-ice are also known to be held at the poles on Mars, and probably at great depth at many locations around the planet.

Mars Rover Crests Hill, Sees New Terrain
type size: [A] [A] [A]
Sept. 1, 2005— More than 1 1/2 years into a mission initially planned to last three months, the Mars rover Spirit has reached the top of the tallest hill near its landing site and unveiled a geologist's paradise of new targets below.
During its year-long climb up Husband Hill, Spirit drilled rocks, studied soil samples and looked for signs of water, which scientists believe is key to learning if indigenous life ever took root on Mars.
"Spirit has given us a wonderful window into the very ancient past of Mars," the mission's lead scientist Steve Squyres with Cornell University said during a news conference on Thursday.
"It was a violent place. It was a place where meteorite impacts were happening frequently. It was a place where there were volcanic explosions happening frequently, hot stuff was raining from the skies.
"There was water. When rocks were deposited, water would flow through those rocks and it would change their chemistry. This is a glimpse into it, but it does tell us that Mars was dramatically different at the time these rocks were formed than it is today," Squyres said.
Scientists have high hopes that both Spirit and its identical twin Opportunity, which is working on the other side of the planet, will continue to operate for months to come.
For the immediate future, Spirit will remain at the top of Husband Hill, a 270-foot peak named after Rick Husband, the commander of the fallen space shuttle Columbia crew.
"That's no Mount Everest, but for a little rover that was a heck of a climb," Squyres said.
Scientists decided to drive Spirit to the Columbia Hills, located about 1.5 miles away from the rover's landing site in Gusev Crater, after initial studies showed only volcanic rocks with few traces of past water nearby.
The rocks at the base of the hills were very different, revealing a richer history of alteration by water.
"Every time Spirit has gained altitude, we've found different rock types," Squyres said.
Rover operators have no idea how long it will take Spirit to descend the hill, nor how many targets will be studied along the way. Scientists already are ogling several layered ledges of rock south of the hills they would like Spirit to probe.
Also of interest is a flat feature that the team calls "home plate" which may be a plateau of older rock or perhaps a crater that has been filled in.
The rover is in excellent shape, said Jacob Matijevic, chief of the rover engineering team, though it has worn down its small drill and will no longer be able to bore holes in rocks.
In addition to pictures and various chemical analyzers, the rover still has use of a brush to sweep away dust and loose soil, he added.
This image from Spirit reveals the vast landscape to the east previously hidden behind the Columbia Hills. The rim of "Thira Crater" frames the distant horizon some 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) away
Topping Husband Hill
This two-inch mini-panorama was taken by NASA's Spirit rover on Martian day, or sol, 582 (Aug. 23, 2005), just as the rover finally completed its intrepid climb up Husband Hill. The summit appears to be a windswept plateau of scattered rocks, little sand dunes and small exposures of outcrop. (like the place where Luke Skywalker was born... snicker)

Mars itself does not have a dominant red hue color content as the Shadow Government would have us all believe!
more proof positive of NASA's disinformation pics
and here is a pic of Mars without the NASA filter
and more real pics of Mars
and finally a pic from the NASA Viking catalog CD#1
