On July 12, 1988 the USSR launched Phobos II an unmanned satellite to Mars. It arrived in January 1989 and entered an orbit around Mars as the first phase towards its real destination, a small Martian moon called Phobos.
The mission was flawless until the craft aligned itself with the moon. On March 28, 1989 an elliptical object was detected moving towards the satellite seconds before it failed. All indications were that the elliptical object had attacked the satellite which was now dead and left spinning out of control.
On March 28, 1989 Tass, the official Soviet news agency stated:
Phobos II failed to communicate with Earth as scheduled after completing and operation yesterday around the Martian moon Phobos. Scientists at mission control have been unable to establish stable radio contact.
However the next day a top official of the Soviet Space Agency said:
Phobos II is 99% lost for good.
It is important to note that he stated the entire satellite was gone and not just contact with it.
On March 31, 1989 Headlines dispatched by the Moscow correspondents of the European News Agency stated:
Phobos II Captured Strange Photos of Mars Before Losing Contact With Its Base. Vremya revealed yesterday that the space probe Phobos II, which was orbiting above Mars when Soviet scientists lost contact with it on Monday, had photographed an Unidentified Object on the Martian surface seconds before losing contact.
Scientists described the object as a thin ellipse 12½ miles. It was further stated that the photos could not be an illusion because it was captured by 2 different color cameras as well as cameras taking infrared shots. One controller at the Kaliningrad control center concluded that the probe was now spinning out of control. It would seem that something struck or shot the Phobos II Probe.
In the October 19, 1989 issue of Nature Magazine, Soviet scientists concluded that the craft could be spinning because it was impacted.
It has long been rumored that Mars and its moon Phobos are alien colonies. The surface of Mars is covered with strange shapes/buildings that do not appear to be natural such as the pyramids, square buildings, runways, et cetera. One structure shows the face of a man with a helmet looking into space. It can be seen at the National Space Science Data Center, Viking photo with catalog number 76-A-593/17384 Titled HEAD. Another photo is 070-A-13. There are now 11 Viking photographs of this obviously intelligently constructed monument on the surface of Mars. The HEAD and other artificial features such as the pyramids an electrical engineer & imaging specialist Vincent DiPietro, and a Lockheed computer scientist combined the original photographs and combined them to get a more accurate composite images. The clearer images show that the features on the surface of Mars had been artificially sculpted.
