This must be a joke... Please say its a joke
Can't say what it is, but cosmic strikes is something new. Because if you can't explain something invent a phenomena.
: Cosmic rays were discovered in 1912 by Victor Hess, when he found that an electroscope discharged more rapidly as he ascended in a balloon. He attributed this to a source of radiation entering the atmosphere from above, and in 1936 was awarded the Nobel prize for his discovery.
Watch and see, he will see those cosmic rays again on another image in a few weeks and come out with another thread (I'll even help him name it) "A Third Source Of light On Mars Images!"

After looking at image it's either:
Phobos or Deimos (Mar's moons)
Earth (I've seen images of earth from Mars and it looks a lot like that)
Nothing interesting, except that it's a photo from another planet of course.

ARKEN, if you would take the time to simply click on this: www.darkerview.com...
It explains how CCD cameras do this ALL the time and that is the source of this mans experiments!
He was getting 5 to 10 hits per hour and this is from earth.
You take hours to mull over a Mars photo and come up with a definite conclusion yet someone posts a link that will explain it in detail and you won't click it!
Is it because you don't want to know the truth?
Everyone loves a mystery, but when it's proved to be false it's time to move on!
You should think of your credibility on ATS, it's not exactly stellar!
As an experiment I took a camera based on an E2V CCD87 back thinned CCD and took continuous 10 minute dark frames overnight. In the morning I processed these frames by subtracting a master dark frame from each. What was left in each frame was a few bright points or streaks, each representing some high energy event that had occurred during the night. There were and average of five to ten events on each frame.

I don't have a definitive conclusion, instead of you or someone other like you. Mine are hipotesys based on the odds...
How many odds to detect the same phenomenon in a so restricted area and in a so short period of time?
Cosmic rays are charged particles that fly through the universe in every direction all the time. Every so often they'll collide with something like a camera. One sign of a cosmic ray hit, Maki said, is the appearance of the ray in images taken by one of Curiosity's eyes but not the other.
The daylight. They can't be detectded in broad day light, according to the source.
And Why your cosmic rays was never detected before?
Why only in these recent Sols?
What if the Rover will detected again the same phenomenon, in broad daylight, in the same area for more than one time?
