Since we were talking about space and aliens yesterday, I found myself thinking of this story, it's kind of old, but definitely worth a look. I first read about it years ago on Richard Hoagland's site, Enterprisemission.com. There is probably some very rational geological explanation for these anomalies, but when Hoagland and his team let their imaginations run wild, it's hard not to get sucked in. These translucent "tubes" or "Hoagy's" (named after Hoagland), run up and down around each other and have visible support bands to hold up the glass-like structure. There is some sagging evident in some of the support ribs, which might indicate that these structures were mounted vertically on canyon walls. It's very interesting and a good read whether you believe it or not.
Hoagland has long been a proponent of the "Face on Mars", pyramids, and other structures in the Cydonia region of the red planet. In his book, The Monuments of Mars: A City on the Edge of Forever, he explores these and many other martian anomolies. Hoagland also has a section discussing a series of mind boggling structures on our own moon, in volume 3 of Hoaglan's Mars video series, The Moon, Mars Connection.
There are sandworms, crystal palaces, gigantic structures that tower up to a mile above the lunar surface. Lots of wild stuff, all from examining publicly available NASA photos.
It's probably all crap, but like many of you...I want to believe.
