Support The Other Side of Midnight!
The story started at a place on Mars called “Cydonia” … and a startling land form called “the Face on Mars.”
If you are new to the story, you can learn the details in “The Monuments of Mars: a City on the Edge of Forever”; if you want the updated version, you can tune in tonight to “The Other Side of Midnight” ….
Here’s a preview.
A few days ago, NASA released the first new image of “The Face on Mars” in 16 years — the most celebrated, most recognizable feature of “Cydonia,” if not of Mars itself!; one of our Enterprise imaging team members, citizen-scientist Keith Laney, has created a stunning giga-pan of this latest NASA image — https://www.gigapan.org/gigapans/233780 — and will be one of our featured guests tonight.
So, after ignoring the highly controversial “face” for 16 years (NASA still insists it’s “just a trick of light and shadow”) … why has the space agency suddenly published the most INCREDIBLY DETAILED image of the Face ever seen outside the Agency … an image that PROVES every one of our contentions about its “artificiality”–
Made across more than 40 years of independent research!?
Could it have anything to do with the Agency also establishing an official NASA Headquarters Office looking into UAP (“Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena”), with a sub-office devoted specifically to “techno-signatures” … ancient ET RUINS … appearing on NASA data from all across the solar system?
Whatever the reason, the story started at “Cydonia” ….
Join us, tonight … for “the Beginning of the End.”

George J. Haas is the founder and premier investigator of the Mars research group known as The Cydonia Institute and is a member of the Society for Planetary SETI Research (SPSR). His research encompasses over 30 years of study and analysis of NASA and ESA photographs of Mars.
His early schooling was in the visual arts. He was an art instructor, writer, curator, and the former director of the Sculptors’ Association of New Jersey (1999 – 2001). During the 1980s he exhibited extensively throughout the New Jersey and New York area and was represented by the Grace Harkin Gallery in New York’s East Village and had a one man show at the OK Harris Gallery of Art in Soho in 1989.
Over the last two decades Haas has studied the art and iconography of North and South American cultures such as the Olmec, Maya, and Aztec. He has been a member of both the Pre-Columbian Societies at the University of Pennsylvania and in Washington DC.
Member of the Enterprise Mission Imaging Team
Ron is a proudly uncredentialed polymath with a deep interest in the study of archeology, especially Martian archeology. Ron was raised on a farm in Pennsylvania collecting arrowheads as a child. He found the programmatic aspect of education too limiting after attending a famous Quaker school in PA. Ahead of his studies and his time, he attempted to contort himself into attending college; before he gave up on academia and left to travel overseas. Throughout all this time, he has focused his core attention on the metrology of our paleo history, particularly on other planets, and especially Mars.
Holger has done system operation and consulting around Java-based enterprise applications since 1999 in Germany and moved in 2016 to Silicon Valley, now solving customer problems at a company specialized on providing high performance Java VMs. In his spare time he is applying software engineering skills on public data provided by Mars spaceflight missions.
With working on data provided by Mars missions as an independent researcher, he investigated Martian mysteries since the 1997 Pathfinder landing mission. Since then offered public software services and tools followed, like true color photo browsers over the Pathfinder and Spirit & Opportunity missions or space mission raw image converters. Data archeology on historic Viking Lander camera tapes was also one project. It is difficult to convince him about other sky colors of Mars than human-friendly blue.
Since the 2012 Curiosity landing, he has been an active participant on Mars Society conventions with posters and talks and in addition a member of the local group in Mountain View, California. Aside from spaceflight technology, traveling to ancient sites is one of his interests and wondering about ancient engineering achievements in Egypt and South America. In 2005 he acquired at the University Dortmund, the German Diploma in Computer Science and secondary topic Electrical Engineering.

Keith Morgan has been an Electronics Technician with ABC News in Washington DC since February 1982 and retired in July 2011. He has a BA in Communications from Howard University with a minor in Computer Science. He helped build Howard University's TV station, WHMM, now WHUT. He worked at WRC Channel 4 in Washington in 1980. Keith is the discoverer of what has been coined the Morgan Curve on Mars. He has researched the Mars anomalies since 1988 after purchasing “The Monuments of Mars”. You can find Keith in Graham Hancock's book "The Mars Mystery", and Dr. Stanley McDaniel's "The McDaniel Report, as well as "The Monuments of Mars" second edition on, and "Dark Mission".
He worked with Nightline with Ted Koppel. Keith was instrumental in getting a face to face between Richard Hoagland and Ted Koppel. While at ABC he saw news casts, going to ABC affiliates, about inventors with technologies that could have got us off fossil fuels decades ago. Those were similar technologies that are just now coming into the mainstream today. He also supplied the Nightline show with information which was used in various shows about Mars and Europa.
Keith thinks he now knows why the face is on Mars, and who is buried within, based on Sumerian writings over 6000 years old.

Ruggero (Pronounced Rujiero), is of Italian- English descent. From his native London, he later moved to the South Coast (Jurassic Coast) of England where he lives and works. Ruggero graduated from ‘The University of Southampton’ School of Health Professions Science in 2004 with a BSc Honors degree in Podiatric medicine. In his working professional life, he undertakes all aspects of general practice with a special interest in Human movement and musculoskeletal medicine including gait re-education and orthotic prescription.
Kynthea is drawn to collaborate with pioneers of the future to bring about a better world for all.
Together with Richard C. Hoagland, she studied the first Cydonia photos from Mars and helped organize the early Mars investigation and spear-headed several Mars Rallys at JPL in Pasadena, California. Kynthea served as Artistic Director for the Mars Project and collaborated on the first Mars Exhibit.
She was the first to sculpt the incredibly controversial Face on Mars along with the Cliff behind it that echoes from profile “face features”. This sculpture appeared on the first edition of “Monuments of Mars” by Richard C. Hoagland and was later corroborated by computer analysis of Mark J. Carlotto. Then came the “Cody Mars Face”, unveiled at the Cody Conference where she contributed to discussions with other Anomalies Researchers including Richard C. Hoagland, Anthony West, Eugene Mallove, Tom Van Flandern and others. When the Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) took a provocative photo of the Face on Mars she set about to sculpt the face once again, including the new data revealed in the NASA photo. That sculpture, the ‘Malta Bronze” was featured on a later edition of the “Monuments of Mars” book cover designed by her. She later created a 3D computer model used in Mars Face animations featured on PAX TV. The mystery of the Face on Mars captured her attention for more than 17 years.
Kynthea continues to support and contribute to the on-going planetary/Mars investigations with the Enterprise Mission Imaging Team, her interest and research of Martian anomalies spans nearly 40 years.
Why the Fury to Return to Mars?

Cydonia Face platform geometry of a square and circle with 1380m side length and same diameter (4528ft). Original geometry finding by Detlef Hoyer and presented on Oct 26, 2013 in Ulm, Germany:
The anti-clockwise rotation angle of the face is 33°. Raw image release by NASA / JPL / University of Arizona: https://www.uahirise.org/ESP_080535_2210
3. A twin of the Cydonia Face platform at 41.03N 152.68E, only 16 km (10 miles) further north than the Cydonia Face latitude at 40.76N, but 9600 km (6000 miles) away in longitude to its 9.46W. The ridge north of it is aligned to the equator.
The image was acquired in 2018 by the HiRISE camera on Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, originally requested by me in 2010 via the HiWish project for citizen scientists: https://www.uahirise.org/ESP_056461_2210
Originally this mesa was shown first as Mars Global Surveyor image https://nssdc.gsfc.nasa.gov/imgcat/html/object_page/mgs_94109.html in a public presentation by Terry Martin, JPL Research Scientist, on April 17, 2003 where he pointed out the unusual geology of having large boulders on top of this small mesa: https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/videos/lecture-series-mars-global-surveyor-across-the-centuries The clockwise rotation angle measured at the southern edge is 33°.

5. Viking Orbiter 1 periapsis was 39.3°N, visible as the line of the red marked image location, the highest resolution during Viking Orbiter 1 of 8m/pixel. That’s almost the Cydonia Face latitude of 40.76°N, only 90km south of it, still in perfect overhead viewing location.
Mariner 9 wide angle image 09162484 and narrow angle image 09162519 of Cydonia with the Cydonia Face location.
8. Mariner 9 orbit above Cydonia and locations of all images in Cydonia during its 1972 mapping mission. Images are sequenced at 35s time intervals according to the published Image_ID field in the image meta data and there are 2 image IDs missing in the released data. Other orbits show the same interval pattern with missing Image_IDs which could mean the operators pre-sequenced at a higher rate than the on-board tape recorder could actually write the image file as it needed apparently 42s. Most likely just a precaution to be able to use the orbit time in case of single image failures.
9. Viking Orbiter 1 data recording computer lost power for 14 minutes on March 19, 1977 between Saturday 2:03am EST and 11:35am EST when it was scheduled to receive orbiter tape-stored images of orbit 271 only 300 km above Cydonia of highest resolution 8 m/pixel:
