The floating rock looks like a ball and its supposed shadow looks like a shadow of something that's not a ball.

Nice post. I love optical illusions.

Its a neat pic but just an optical illusion. Its like the pics you see of boats that seem to be floating above the water because the shadow appears on the sea bottom since the water is so clear. This is just a coincidence of a round shaped rock near a shadow on the ground that makes the rock appear to be floating. Still a neat pic though...

I was going to say for sure a basketball game that got a little carried away. But the optical illusion seems to fit. It appears the rock, to me, is not a sphere. When you cover the shadow with your finger you see an object on the ground with it's shadow being the bottom half of the "sphere".

Wwweeeelllll....... it does look spherical and it doesn't seem to have a shadow where it should......but..... could it be a round rock caught on film as it rolls and bounces down that slope....mmmmmmmm?

You circled a rock that's on the ground.

Next.

Looks like the ATS Welcome Wagon is out in full force! That statement is FULL of sarcasm, BTW.

Love the comments made by the faux-mods in this thread...If you're not a moderator, you really shouldn't scold new members for something that irritates YOU. Who even gets irritated by things other people do on the internet? That's just silly, IMHO.


Anyway, welcome to ATS. If you post things and are interested in Mars, UFO's, aliens, etc. you'd better have a thick skin, lol...

The usual fuss over NOTHING the rock is NOT floating the supposed shadow is another rock in the foreground.

^^This.

Here are the rocks in question, contrast adjusted and sharpened:



The shadow is on a different coloured rock that blends more into the background. The shadow cast by the blue coloured rock makes it appear rounder than it is.

You sound like a mod yourself.
I did welcome the member.
Yay another rocks on Mars thread.
Too bad it wasn't in a Mars forum where it belongs.

Come up with more pictures of the same object for comparison then you might have something. Otherwise I agree with the consensus here, it is simply an optical illusion.

I would say they are interesting because they appear to be sedimentary in origin.

The would be shadow doesn't seem to match a sphere.

Correct buddy, I was referring to the first circled image with the so called hovering round rock, but yes you're right. ~$heopleNation
