Anomaly hunters studying images from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter believe they have found the remnants of an ancient city on the Red Planet.
Spotted in photos of a plain, known as Elysium Planitia, which sits on the Martian equator, the purported remains of the 'lost city' appear as angular impressions on the planet's surface.
These oddly shaped lines seem to form rudimentary circles around a secondary 'structure' contained in the center.
The preponderance of the anomalies at Elysium Planitia has led rogue researchers to suggest that they may be evidence for a lost civilization that once thrived on Mars.
Based on their 'design,' the prevailing theory is that they are what is left of a walled city or a domed colony.
Skeptics, however, argue that the anomalies are merely the result of natural changes to the Martian landscape brought about by volcanic activity and other prosaic processes.
While that may very well be the case, until humanity finally makes the leap to Mars, we're guessing that the anomalies will continue to accumulate and keep us guessing as well as imagining what may have happened on the Red Planet in the distant past.
