But anyways, since my post was in direct response to you Shelgeyr I'll just copy and paste it here as well.
Possible??@Shelgeyr – I was wondering when someone would mention EDM actions being involved and while I don’t disagree I have to ask a rather obvious question –
Could these crater formations be the combined effect of EDM and an impact?
Under EU theory electrical discharge events could occur when a small meteor or other foreign object carrying a different charge potential enters the electrical atmosphere of a larger body, although such a discharge would likely ‘blast away’ most of that incoming object it is entirely possible that if large enough to start with at least some portion of the object would survive the discharge and continue on to impact the surface.
The object causes the discharge that produces the first crater/scar via EDM and then the remains of that object impact the center of the EDM crater/scar afterwards causing the ‘bullseye’ effect.
I know I have seen many meteors here on Earth produce what seem like electrical discharge effects as they approach the surface(typically in the form of a bright flash often accompanied by power or internet disruptions in the area), it doesn’t seem to be a far stretch to assume that a meteor would act similarly on Mars.
Of course it could be solely the result of an impact or multiple impacts or solely the result of multiple electrical discharges originating at those locations, but to me it seems far simpler and more logical to say it’s both.
But now I’m probably going to piss off both conventional and EU theorists, lol.
