Image of the Day - 4
Parrotopia Complex / Western Argyre Region / Mars
The Parrotopia Complex gets its name from a nearby hill that can look somewhat like a parrot. The complex comprises of a series of walled grids that are being exposed as overlaying sedimentary rock is being eroded away. These grids might represent the remains of the foundations of an artificial arcology mega-structure that was obliterated many millions of years ago. The width of the first image below is about 2 miles. For more information click this "stargate" µµµ
