Inca City, Mars proven to be part of a perfectly circular collection of structures!


New photographic evidence shows how Inca City, Mars fits into a massive complex of anomalous structures that form a perfect circle on the surface of the Red Planet! This is elegant proof of intelligent construction on a grand scale.

These massive structures were first identified as potential city ruins by Dr. Dan Burisch in the late 1990s. Intensive research isolated many more anomalous artifacts in the region and led the way to the publication of his findings in the book Eagles Disobey: The Case for Inca City, Mars. I only wish Dr. Burisch could see this new evidence. I know what he'd say...."It's so good to be proven right!!!"


Unfortunately, he resides under heavy guard when he is not working at S4, and any contact with the public has been strongly discouraged. The people in charge of the Blk-Ops projects he is working on were less than pleased that his name and findings with regard to Mars were ever made public. Dr. Burisch endured the loss of his academic credentials rather than back down from his position that Mars, especially Inca City Mars, held one of the keys to the question of extraterrestrial life, and its relationship to human life.

The foundation-like structures seen in the images that Dr. Burisch used for his initial research were not broad enough to show the full extent or scope of the find. In fact, when one of the team sent in a request to see surrounding images, NASA responded by saying that those frames were private and not available to the public.


But now that's all changed, thanks to the amazing improvements in technology, and what seems to be a change in attitude concerning the release of nearby images. The MOC camera permits us to see the full area surrounding Inca City, and as a result we now know that Inca City is only a small part of a massive, perfectly circular collection of anomalies! It's nothing short of spectacular! To view the images from the source, see below.

"Inca City" is the informal name given by Mariner 9 scientists in 1972 to a set of intersecting, rectilinear ridges that are located among the layered materials of the south polar region of Mars. Their origin has never been understood; most investigators thought they might be sand dunes, either modern dunes or, more likely, dunes that were buried, hardened, then exhumed. Others considered them to be dikes formed by injection of molten rock (magma) or soft sediment into subsurface cracks that subsequently hardened and then were exposed at the surface by wind erosion.

The Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) has provided new information about the "Inca City" ridges, though the camera's images still do not solve the mystery. The new information comes in the form of a MOC red wide angle context frame taken in mid-southern spring, shown above left and above right. The original Mariner 9 view of the ridges is seen at the center.


The MOC image shows that the "Inca City" ridges, located at 82S, 67W, are part of a larger circular structure that is about 86 km (53 mi) across. It is possible that this pattern reflects an origin related to an ancient, eroded meteor impact crater that was filled-in, buried, then partially exhumed. In this case, the ridges might be the remains of filled-in fractures in the bedrock into which the crater formed, or filled-in cracks within the material that filled the crater. Or both explanations could be wrong. While the new MOC image shows that "Inca City" has a larger context as part of a circular form, it does not reveal the exact origin of these striking and unusual martian landforms.
