Surely a good "spot" to investigate for NASA/JPL Rover Team with their instruments onboard the Rover Curiosity in that ancient Martian Lake... What emerge from this image on Curiosity Sol 551 appear to be a well known, ancient life form: Ammonite, an extinct group of marine invertebrate animals.

It is not an ammonite, it is a yellow circle you put there.

Interesting....

However I can see the same "ridges" elsewhere on the rock. If anything it looks more like a hieroglyphic than a fossil.

Mamt.


Why don't you post the same blurry picture without the highlighting so we can see if anyone else can spot it? As usual with your pareidolia threads, the illusion is impossible for others to see without your manipulation of the image.

Thank you. That 'ammonite' is awfully asymmetrical, don't you think?

Here is the linked photo. Also looks like Mollusk shells embedded in the soil as well.

Nice find Arken!

Seriously , what are you on about ? Stop beating around the bush and say what you have to say ?


Your not making your self clear ?
Are you suggesting the OP has photo shopped the pic? Are you saying the object in question is Not what Op claims it to be ?

What are you getting at ?

Explain please ......

Smh....

Another interesting pic to look at Arken.

I used to, a long time ago, give you grief like some posters do, when I clicked on your threads.

Over time, I came to the realization, I really enjoy clicking on your threads. Whether I see what you do or not, I still get to see some great Mars pics, I wouldn't go looking for on my own. I've learned about the make up of different types of rocks, and rock formations.

Without the threads you bring, there is so much I would have never seen, nor learned.

Keep up the good work Arken...someday, I'm sure if something really phenomenal turns up. You'll be the first to find it, and bring it to ATS.

Good eye as always Arken!! S&F for the share.


Don't let the naysayers get to you when you post these pics. I always enjoy them and I do believe some may be more than just "rocks". None of us really know for a fact. If they do they aren't telling! I don't know why so many folks find it inconceivable that something besides dust might be found on Mars. Even if something didn't originate there, it is still possible something may have carried something odd there on it's way through the galaxy.

Since we are still discovering things about space all of the time... it's very likely that we don't know everything about everything.

What idiotic game you try to play?


You are the one playing an idiotic game. You have magnified a section of an image taken on another planet to the point where it is blurry, decided that it vaguely resembled something-- in this case, an extinct mollusc-- highlighted it so that others are primed to see it as well, then posted it as proof of life on another planet. You do this constantly. That little bit of rock is not symmetrical enough to be an ammonite. In any event, how would an ammonite get all the way to Mars? If it evolved independently, then where are the other ammonites? And what about all the other monuments you claim to have discovered? The football player, for example? Did the ammonites build the gigantic statue of the football player? Seriously, Arken, this pareidolia thing has gotten silly.
