Armchair Astronomer Discovers Newest Mars Anomaly

David Martines, a California "armchair astronomer" had a YouTube video, which was heading for viral status after he uploaded a zoom in on a white, cylindrical object on Google Earth's Mars Explorer. 

According to Martines, the object ( labeled Bio Station Alpha) is "about 700 feet long and 150 feet wide." adding,  "because I'm just assuming that something lives in it or has lived in it."

His video was uploaded May 28, 2011.  After having been watched over 750,000 times, as of today the video has been removed.  I wonder why...

Fox News reported a NASA spokesman speculated that "Bio Station Alpha" is most likely a glitch in the digital imaging, or an unusual feature on the surface of the planet -- and not a Martian base.

Martines believes he knows differently.

"It's very unusual in that it's quite large, it's over 700 feet long and 150 feet wide, it looks like it's a cylinder or made up of cylinders," he said in the video.

"It could be a power station, or it could be a biological containment, or it could be a glorified garage... hope it's not a weapon.

"Whoever put it up there had a purpose I'm sure. I couldn't imagine what the purpose was. I couldn't imagine why anybody would want to live on Mars."

For those of you who have downloaded Google Earth, in Mars Explorer the coordinates of "Bio Station Alpha" are 71 49'19.73"N 29 33'06.53"W

Well, I found Martines' video before it got yanked.  Having watched it, I pulled up Google Earth's Mars Explorer and typed in the coordinates.  I found the same anomaly that he did. 

After downloading and examining photo captures of the anomaly, I have to agree with Martines.  Sorry NASA, it's more like an "unnatural feature" and your "glitch theory" has a big glitch in it.
