Artificial Structures on Mars and the Moon
Since the very first missions to Mars, there have been rumours about artifacts or structures on the surface of Mars which seem to be artificial in nature. One of the most prominent ones was the famous 'Face on Mars'. During the Viking mission, some intriguing photographs were taken of the Cydonia region located in the northern hemisphere of the red planet.

The Face on Mars

This is the famous 'Face on Mars', photggraphed by the Viking
space probe in 1976. The face appears to be manufactured, and
not natural.

Is it possible that erosion on the surface of Mars caused such a change
in the way the Face looks today compared to what it looked like back in 1976
as shown in the first photo on the left?

Another unusual structure found on Mars look like a tunnel system that seems
to be transparent with "ribbed" supports that run its entire length.


The following scientific papers written by Mark J. Carlotto and Richard C. Hoagland support the hypothesis that the Face on Mars and other structures on the red planet are artificial in origin.

Structures on the Far Side of the Moon

Donna Hare, former NASA contractor

What the general public may not be aware of is the fact that there is a special team at NASA whose job it is to screen every incoming photograph and look for anything unusual or suspicious - including UFOs - and airbrush them out before releasing the prints to the public.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if the photos pertaining to the Face on Mars and the other structures located on the red planet weren't "touched up" by that same team that airbrushes UFOs from satellite photos of the Moon and other sources! An omission of the Truth is still a lie!
