Cydonia: Mars Earth Connection

posted by Mr. Black Sept 18, 2009

A fascinating connection between Mars and the Earth is revealed by examining a key geographical area on each of the planets. During this inquest, we examine the Cydonia region of Mars. And its stunning correlation to an equally intriguing place here on Earth.

A View of Cydonia

Do artificial structures exist on Mars? Early research would indicate that if there are indeed artificial structures on Mars, then the first place to look is the Cydonia region. This is where the ‘Face on Mars’, pyramids, and other geometrical shapes were first discovered. The composite photo below from the 1976 Viking 1 probe reveals these anomolies.

Although the most famous Mars anomoly is the Face (whether the fame is deserved or not), our focus today is specifically on the strikingly clear & defined ring shaped crater and the spiral Mound. Keep reading this and the Mars Earth connection (or should I say reflection) will soon become blatantly obvious.

Circle Crater

Taking a closer look at Circle crater on Mars we see the clearly defined ring from what looks like the impact site of a large asteroid. Alongside is the two mile long ‘Wall’.

However, after seeing the Cydonia Mars Earth connection, you’ll be left wondering if this is really a natural formation.

So, in search of the Mars Earth connection, what particular site here on Earth would most closely resemble Circle Crater ?

So, in search of the Mars Earth connection, what particular site here on Earth would most closely resemble Circle Crater ?

Avebury Stone Circle

The avebury circle, a monument built over 5,000 years ago, is an embankment and a ditch which encloses a large ceremonial area in which there were several circles of stones (most of which were later destroyed). There were originally 98 stones in total: weighing upto 40 tons and standing 13 feet high.

Located just 32 miles south of the Stonehenge, the Avebury Stone Circle shown above certainly does reveal a resemblance to the Circle Crater on Mars. However, it is not the visual appearance alone that is most intriguing. It is the geographical parallels which are most stunning. Yet before we review this geographical link, let’s examine the second Mars monument of interest.

Spiral Mound

South of the Wall and Circle Crater, exists this interesting Mars object dubbed ‘Spiral Mound’. About 1 mile in diameter, the mound features a sort of periphrial groove around its base. And another grove which seems to spiral to the top of the structure.

Silbury Hill

Back on Earth, we can compare the Spiral Mound to an Earth point of interest called Silbury Hill.
This massive artificial mound has a flat top. It too was constructed over 5,000 years ago. Consisting of multiple layers of chalk rubble, flints, gravel and soil. A formidable amount of effort was invested into the construction, but like many other ancient monuments here on Earth, the original purpose remains a mystery.

So, we have paired two points of interest on both Mars and Earth which share a similar appearance.
Circle Crater on Mars with the Avebury Stone Circle on Earth. And Spiral Mound on Mars with Silbury Hill on Earth.

But these visual pairings alone is nothing to get excited about. It’s hardly a strong connection. Yet with this final point, we’ll learn that the connection is far more profound that we could have imagined...

A Primer on Meridians

The prime meridian is the “starting point” for the measurement of longnitude. Defined at 0 degrees. A prime meridian needs to be established on any given planet so you can use a longnitude/lattitude system for pinpointing places on the globe.

The original prime meridian on Mars, established in 1832, happens to run directly through Cydonia.

Cydonia is on the prime meridian on Mars, then what is on the prime meridian of Earth ? It goes through England; the island of Britain. In this area, we find some of the greatest megalithic sites in the world. Including, you guessed it, Avebury Stone Circle and Silbury Hill.

Stunning Connection

Upon further examination of both sites, now we can see a stunning corelation. The angle from the Spiral Mound to the Crater Circle is exactly the same as the angle from Silbury Hill to the Avebury Stone Circle.

You might say this is more than a connection. This is strikingly proportionate. It is a mirror reflection.

You have to ask, what is the probability that two surface anomalies, on two different planets of the same solar system, would by chance have the same relative size, the same relative distance from each other, and lie on the same arbitrarily defined prime meridian of the planet ?
