Really weird this anomaly. Seems that this "puff of sand" come out from a circular "nozzle" in the rock. Some kind of Martian Creature inside it? Wind? Or what else? How it can be explained?

Just gophers working underground, nothing unusual here at all.

It's a tiny interdimensional star gate that Curiosity happened to catch just as it was opening. You enter through the doorway the arrow is pointing to, of course!


Nice find Arkin!

I don't think it's a puff of sand, the edges are too defined. However, it is very interesting. It appears to be a thin, sand colored, translucent shard. There also seems to be a slight shadow around it where it intersects with the rock but there's not quite enough resolution to make out the boundary with the sand. Nice find.

I'd be tempted to call it the "Mars Glass Anomaly" myself

A triangular piece of rock that is resting against a bigger rock?

Either that... or sand people

Of course it's a Star Gate, it's for the Mice, they are the ones that ordered these planets in the first place!!

In the third picture it almost looks like a piece of glass as it appears to be translucent , either that or it's something else

Nice find,Arken! I was starting to wonder where you were...I been waiting for the latest from Mars.

It's a Martian shark, they swim in the sand over there on the red planet.


It does appear to be translucent so it's definitely not a rock.

Nice find.

This is actually rather interesting. I don't think it's a stone or object, it doesn't cast a shadow.
It also doesn't look like an image artifact either. The only explanation I have is that it's some kind of glare, otherwise I am stumped.

First to nail it…


lens flare. When the sun is shining on some portion of the camera lens but not directly in view.

Pretty much, and if you look closely, the 'shark fin' extends on down the picture almost to the rock in the foreground, so more like a 'car window' effect, and if you look at the source picture in the link, there seems to be a 'glare' effect in the top right corner.
I never noticed that effect before though, but then if you're not looking...

…so more like a 'car window' effect.

Even better. Is the lens in a housing?

Guess so…

Camera mast

Yes, it seems to have caught light from somewhere. The next mastcam picture has Arken's rock just out of view, and only the rock beside it, so 'his' rock is in only one picture it seems.

When I'd see things like that at the beach, it was usually a bit of plastic sheet under a rock, or a shard of perspex from a greenhouse panel.

Glass shard or something sounds nice, that is what I first thought when I saw it. Puff of sand was waaaaay downt the list tho at first glance.
Hate to say I thought flare pretty quick tho too, seems to be the more likely option.
As stated above, it is just so defined... too perfect even.

Keep looking tho Always enjoy an arkon mars anomaly thread!

Oh and where are people seeing a rock in this thing?! It seems to be transparent, what rock is transparent!?

I think he means more like a squirt of sand coming out of the rock from a nozzle.....

I see it Arken. Not sure what it is, but I see it.

Looks like some kind of light reflection to me.

Like a reflection you would get by taking a pic behind a glass window


Not impressed..
