In this really fascinating VIS's Extra Detail Magnification (or "EDM"), obtained from a Contextual Image (or "CTX" frame) taken by the NASA - Mars Odyssey Orbiter on March, 15th, 2016, and during its 63.224th orbit around the Red Planet, we can see en an extremely interesting and quite unusually-looking Surface Feature which seems to be NOT truly Natural.

Of course we, as IPF, are just (and heavily) speculating, but this EDM is,however, dedicated to such a Feature, as well as to all the Planetary Researchers whose main goal is to look for and, possibly, find, some of the so-called "Anomalies" which are located on the Surface of Mars and other Celestial Bodies. And, to be fully intellectually honest - and no matter what "Scientists" can say about it -, this is certainly one of them...

This picture (which is a crop obtained from an Original Mars Odyssey Orbiter b/w and Map Projected frame published on the NASA - Planetary Photojournal with the ID n. PIA 20619) has been additionally processed, magnified to aid the visibility of the details, extra-contrast enhanced and sharpened, Gamma corrected and then colorized in Absolute Natural Colors (such as the colors that a normal human eye would actually perceive if someone were onboard the NASA - Mars Odyssey Orbiter and then looked down, towards the Surface of Mars), by using an original technique created - and, in time, dramatically improved - by the Lunar Explorer Italia Team.
