Who Put Huge Mysterious Monoliths On Mars & Phobos?

Huge monoliths have been discovered on celestial bodies inside our solar system, and scientists are unable to interpret their meaning and origins. When the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) spacecraft was mapping the small moon of Mars, Phobos, and sent its incredible images from the small, potato-shaped moon back to Earth, ufologists had a field day speaking about the mysterious structure that was clearly visible on the surface of Phobos.

Martian monolith was photographed by the HiRISE camera onboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, from about 180 miles (300 km) above. According to scientists at the University of Arizona, this intriguing object is projected out of the martian surface and appears to be perfectly rectangular, standing in an upright position and measuring about 5 meters across.

In 2009, Yisrael Spinoza, a spokesman for the HiRISE department of the university’s Lunar and Planetary Laboratory stated: “It would be unwise to refer to it as a “monolith” or “structure” because that implies something artificial like it was put there by someone for example. In reality, it’s more likely that this boulder has been created by breaking away from the bedrock to create a rectangular-shaped feature.”

Nothing in the vicinity has a similar shape or size, so what is it? What is its purpose? And who placed it there? The image seems to resemble the black monolith that appears during the key moments of man’s evolution in Stanley Kubrick’s film “2001: A Space Odyssey.” Is it possible that there used to be an ancient civilization on Mars?

The discussion on the monolith became more intense when Buzz Aldrin, one of the first men to land on the Moon, jumped into the matter. He said: “We should visit the moon of Mars, there’s a monolith there, a very unusual structure on this little potato-shaped object that revolves around Mars once every seven hours. When people find out about that they are going to say, “Who put that there? Who put that there?” Well, the universe put it there, or if you choose, God put it there.”

The monolith is a bright object near the Stickney crater, described as a “building-sized” boulder, which casts a prominent shadow. It was discovered by Efrain Palermo, who did extensive surveys of Martian probe imagery, and later confirmed by Lan Fleming, an imaging sub-contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center.
