A UFO blogger has identified a white orb on the Raw Images from the Mars curiosity rover . The anomaly was caught not in one , but eight different images . It was photographed by Front Hazcam on Sol 527 .

Perhaps you could tell us where the white orb is on the pictures because I can't see it.

Did you happen to notice that the white dot is is the same spot on each image?

Ok I see it now , cycling through the pictures it seems to move as the rover moves toward Dingo Gap so I would suggest it's a camera anomaly.

Unlikely , that's about as ridiculous as it gets.

A white dot in the exact same spot in the photographs in 8 different pics and it's an anomaly? Since when did people stop using rational thought?

As i wrote above , its not



Since when did people stop using rational thought?


Why would people write anything without checking in all the facts ?

It could well be a 'hot pixel' as seen on this Navcam image.

You Probably could be right

Thx

A hot pixel can show up when sensors get hot during long exposures.
The reason for a similar white dot in the other image is apparently a coincidence, Nasa tells MailOnline, caused by a cosmic ray or another anomaly.
Other ‘lights’ in the past have been attributed to sunlight glinting off rocks or cosmic rays striking the surface.
Nasa also points out that these image artifacts, including hot pixels and cosmic rays, are relatively common and can be noticed in many other images taken by Curiosity

Thanks for posting this, could not find the location of the raw images so decided not to create a threat for this video without a proper source, but you seem to have found it!

Here someone who edited the images into a small vid, spectacular to say the least but could still be sun-flares:

Thx for the video Dimens

From the video :


In this animated render of the 8 images , the mysterious white orb appears to move around in a controlled fashion . This anomaly cannot be a dead pixel or image artifact , mainly because a dead pixel would remain approximately in the same location whatever its field of view

Intriguing video. The "orb" as it is called is not the only thing moving in relation to the cameras aspect. Panning slightly, tilting slightly and zooming slightly all contribute to the apparent movement of everything, not just the "orb". Looking at the uncropped, unedited raw images reveals this. Look at edges of the raw images and notice this view is a little more zoomed…

Raw image

… than this one:

Raw image

Bounce between the two and look at the edges again. The center background doesn't change (much) but its obvious around the edges that the camera settings have changed. Since the "orb" is on the imager chip of the camera its apparent position will also change on the distant background as a result.

If people will try and resolve what I have just said and make sense of it they will see that it is Paranormal Crucibles channel that is trying to deceive with their 'editing' of the raw image data.

That's interesting, the dot is quite mobile compared to the movement of the camera forward or up and down...I need to look again

I think that comes up twice in the same camera, most likely dust.
