Ok....so this one has me baffled. How does this form naturally? It appears hollow through the center and you are able to see the rocks behind it, but I can't understand how this could naturally form in this fashion here.

If it doesn't form naturally, then what exactly is it in your eyes?

No idea....I don't think there is some alien civilization there....just wondering how this could form naturally in some way. Hollow in the middle like that with the surroundings it is in....doesn't seem like rock could do this unless there is some sort of water flowing through, and even then, it is sitting "upright" so that we can see through the middle....just odd.

It looks like a smaller, somewhat triangular rock lying on top of larger triangular rock, the smaller one being a darker color that the larger one.

Same as that "Sun" on mars rock file...was searching through it and this one caught my eye as odd.

I thought that at first too....optical illusion in a way, but the more I looked at it, the more the rock in the background, just behind it, appears to extend both to the left and right of this "hollow" one. You can see the lines appear to extend past on both sides and through the opening in a uniform way, making me think it is hollow and not a rock on top of a rock.

I looked at that, but I think that it could still be just a line on the smaller rock that coincidentally lines up to appear similar to the background.
If we had some more photos from a different angle....

For me it looks like there is a slight difference in color/brightness between the "hole" and surrounding.
Maybe it´s an optical thing or it could also be a brighter stone in front of that brownish rock.
If you look close, you can find other black "rocks" in the picture.

Look I made a quick mspaint for that to better visualize


Edit: Here is a better one with emphasis on the color difference. I would load up photoshop if I had it here right now.

Regardless of the object the quality of the source pictures from both that site and the mission are great , it's nice NASA finally got over their paint it red period.

I couldn't find the rock as it seems small and there is much to survey but from your grab I would suggest either an optical illusion or or it was made when the place was still watery.
Other than that , I don't know.

Cool pics though.

I would say a rock infront of a rock.

Not hollow imo.

and what's that rectangular thing sitting on that rock in the bottom right corner....cell phone? Wallet? Pack of smokes?
TV remote?

It's pointed straight at the Triangle.....

There are four photos, can you let us know roughly where we can locate it? bottom photo left side for example?

Sorry if it's obvious, tried to find it but couldn't.

It could take a while but I downloaded the whole set and now testing my image recognition tool. Will be a nice test run. It´s a little bit buggy as of now so I can´t gurantee success


Err.. this could take some time. underestimated the size to chew through a bit.

Yey. But had to pinpoint the right sub-image and then search for it on the gigapan and then mark it in paint.
all because I forgot to generate a printout of the pngfile with filename and pixel location in my onFound-Event.


Edit: And only 37 false-positives with my thumb-measured standard values

Who´s ya daddy? xD

Thanks! so for anyone who wants to find it on their own it's in the middle of the 2nd image(from the top)

It looks to me after checking it out and zooming in and out a few times, that it's a rock in front of another rock. Nice optical illusion however.

You´re welcome.
Did you noticed the "next customer bar" (used at supermarket to seperate the products of customers) at the upper left corner of VasaCroe´s picture


Shows, again, you can see so much.
If you tilt your head 45° to the right, close the eyes and refocus, you "see" (or "think to see") that it´s a second rock in front and the black line becomes the shadow. While I breakpointed through the false-positives I saw very similar effects (I would hope so, otherwise my algorithms would be crap)

It's definitely an optical illusion. What you have here is a dark triangular rock in the background, and a piece of broken mirror lying up against it, and reflecting the rock in the foreground...now, who's gonna argue with that!
And be warned, that's me in the red ring.
