"In this photo, I found water running down from below the rocks on a small 2 meter tall hillside in Gale Crater. You can see the wetness and the different color of soil compared to that around it. There is no doubt that it is water. "

A picture of liquid found on mars by the NASA rover!

Very interesting picture!

So should someone on ATS get the credit for finding water on Mars? I remember someone pointing out these water marks years and years ago.

How do they know its water also? Can't it be another water like liquid?

I'm just going to point out. Your title sounds like a picture of liquid was found on Mars. A picture of it. Haha good find OP

To me that might be a more interesting find. Humans weren't there so you know what that would mean.

It's either water or dark sand on bright sand.

As NASA has not connected this picture with the "Water found on Mars announcement" a month or so back, i will go with the dark sand .

Good pic and a great find, F&S for you!

Now, if we could just get a little sample of that Martian moisture and test it for signs of life, that would be great.

If you look closely you can tell that the sands edges are raised like they have been saturated. I don't think it would do that if it were just dry sand.

If you look to the left you can see another fainter area where it has collected.

NASA is well aware of this picture, if they could show water flow both from satellites AND the rower, it would be an amazing home run.

The lack of excitement from NASA over this picture and the others as there are more, tells a lot.

I think it's sand hidden in the cracks of the rock, ( therefore not bleached by the sun ) that comes loose and flow on top of the brighter sand.

Yeah, I found that a year and a half or so ago, and we in the Anomalies thread pretty much concluded that it was just probably just slightly darker sand, without any fluid in it.

Well, there are several, presumably older, run off spots from the same source, and also another run off higher up on the left, also from the rocks, so it must be an ongoing periodic thing. Whether it is dampness or darker sand? it's hard to say, though it does look like dampness staining,



files.abovetopsecret.com...

Use the link for clarity.
To add, NASA has often talked about the 'sweet' spot,

"These perchlorate salts have a property called deliquescence. They take the water vapour from the atmosphere and absorb it to produce the brines."

So any flow is going to be where a liquid can flow, and if this flow is because of night time coldness and pressure, I don't see anything wrong in saying that this could occur anywhere on Mars, but just a matter of degree.
However the author of the link makes a baldy statement off the bat, with not much in the way of explanantion.

NASA said that if its not dark because of water that it's quite possible that previous water arranged the sand to absorb more light causing it to be darker.

And isn't the pictures posted above both satellite and from the rover?

You found that? Really? That's awesome, but slightly darker sand just randomly appearing in the form just as how water would seep down a hill?

I don't believe them in regards to this photo.
I think they know more now than they did then, and it looks like water to me.

Just the way it runs out of the crevice and the lumpiness of the ends...it looks like the water they are finding from space leaking out in satellite photos. Also, now that they have officially announced that they have water, perhaps they might change their views on what this is.
(think about that for a second. Would they say it is water without an official announcement that they know water is on Mars?)
But then, I am no NASA scientist...

Just looks like wet sand to me.

Yes, it's actually what wet sand looks like imo.

That is not sand; it is blood. Everyone can clearly see that the Martian Rock Monster has just engulfed a martian wildebeest.

Meh, some people just don't get it....
