Figure 1 Wils Tetrahedron (MOC E0600269 2001 - detail) (Brightness and contrast adjusted and enlarged 200x)
Note the three triangular faces that form the pyramidal structure, while the base line curves forming a slightly arced apron. Each of the triangular faces are not only smooth and featureless in their formation but they are also remarkable in their spacing. There is also a large debris fan located at the top.
The overall impression of this structure is that it is even more pristine in its geometry than the D&M pyramid. In our analysis we found no known natural mechanism capable of producing such precision therefore it is our conclusion that it is most probable that this feature is of intelligent design.
The size of the formation is about 49 pixels across which is equal to 290 meters (5.84 meters per pixel). That is 951.44 feet or just under 1/5th of a mile. At the time we requested NASA to acquire additional shots of this remarkable feature for further comparison.

Two additional images of Wil's three-sided pyramid were taken by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) and released in 2007. The first MRO image PSP_002841_1740 was taken during the autumn season in the late afternoon with a resolution of 25 centimeters per pixel (Figure 1 - Left). The second MRO image PSP_003896_1740 was taken during the spring in the late afternoon with a resolution of 25 centimeters per pixel (Figure 1 -Right).

This is something we have had around a long time. Our good friend Wil Faust found this and was working on it when he passed. NASA seems very interested in this feature having imaged it a number of times. I don't have the right 3D glasses for this. but it is still a spectacular object.".
BTW looking at the full image from the link above there is a more elongated but similar object directly to the left giving the idea that there could be some nature at work on this. Thinking it was there but worked to look more pyramidal.

Our science paper is published in the current issue of the Journal of Space Exploration, (Volume 6, Issue 3, 2017).
The paper; “Three-Sided Pyramidal Formation in the Western Region of Candor Chasma” identifies a pyramidal formation on the surface of Mars that exhibits a high level of geometry and symmetry. Supported by five separate NASA photographs a geologist and a geoscientist conclude that the pyramidal formation is consistent in its unique three-sided form and propose a claim of artificial design. The authors include William R. Saunders, George J. Haas, James S. Miller and Michael A. Dale.
