I have psychic powers. Somehow the moment I saw this thread, I knew with 100% certainty that it would be a picture of a rock.

I look at the picture, and it's a picture of a rock.

OP you're analysis is complete. What a wonderful rock.


No that was a "flashback" get of that acid man. LOL


Arken (sp?) caught hell for those posts that were the MOST interesting discussions on ATS along with the 9/11 stuff. Where is he?

It is still there, in the distance and to the right. It is definitely the same shape. It looks to be at a different angle to all the other 'blown-out' areas, as if it is upright and facing the camera and not on a flatter plane.

Well spotted, though.
Looking through all those pics of rocks is doing my head in.

That one is the rover catching a piece of itself in that pic, most of us believe.

OK, but why does the thing the funnels are attached to appear to be a stationary object, and not one that would be moving around attached to the rover?

Those images were from Sol 1669. Two days later it is still there and the rover had got closer. I am looking for more

mars.jpl.nasa.gov...






It looks much less like an attached object in these images. The dark bit that looked like a sign now looks like part of the eroded ridge that runs round the rock. The rectangular area still looks unusual and almost like the rock's been carved and it's the brighter, clean part beneath.


One of those rare examples of something genuinely extraordinary-looking out there.

If Elon Musk has his way we'll have much better views of Mars by 2025 lol

Not a chance..elon has accomplished zero and zilch..and is a known hoaxer.

I think it`s just an optical illusion created by the camera.

the pictures were taken by one of the navcams, the navcams can only take black and white pictures any subtle shades of lightness will be lost and the whole thing will appear to be white.
The white in the picture appears much whiter and brighter than it actually is.

here`s 2 pictures taken of the same rocks,
This picture was taken with a black and white navcam:




and this picture was taken with a color mast cam:




you can clearly see that there aren`t actually any bright white rocks,the black and white navcam just makes it appear that all the lighter color rocks are white.


here`s one more picture of the rock with the "white" rectangle on it, this was also taken with one of the black and white navcams.




Here`s what wiki says about the navcams:


The Mars Curiosity rover has two pairs of black and white navigation cameras mounted on the mast to support ground navigation. The cameras have a 45 degree angle of view and use visible light to capture stereoscopic 3-D imagery.[5] These cameras, like those on the Mars Pathfinder missions support use of the ICER image compression format



ICER is a wavelet-based image compression file format used by the NASA Mars Rovers. ICER has both lossy and lossless compression modes.
ICER is a wavelet-based image compressor that allows for a graceful trade-off between the amount of compression (expressed in terms of compressed data volume in bits/pixel) and the resulting degradation in image quality (distortion).

To achieve error containment, ICER produces the compressed bitstream in separate pieces or segments that can be decoded independently. These segments represent rectangular regions of the original image, but are defined in the transform domain.

Looks like a car kinda. The spot in the middle being the windshield, lol. Its almost mirror shape one either ends,almost same distance either side of the "windshield ". color would be wonderful, but that would definitely give away whatever it is

Secure Team 10 are a bunch of hoaxers.

We actually hoax their content as soon as we see it.

~Tenth


Who are "WE"

I think your just repeating what the debunkers started to try and discredit Secureteam10.
If you stop to think for one minute about your claim to them being Hoaxers then you might want to retract that slur .

I would agree, they/he, has interpreted various photo's and video's with a conspiratorial slant, but that does not warrant being accused of Hoaxing .

What you fail to understand about whats being shown by Secureteam10 is that the information vis-a-vis the videos, and photos, are predominately sent to him by the general public , therefore they are the property of the person who sent them in, and that means they can not be altered in any way unless given permission to do so.


I see you are new,
Tenth is a mod here, it's a part of the philosophy at ATS to exclude what amounts quite often to clicks to some of the material that SC10 or rather Tyler tend to play with, Tenth is aware that much of the material is tenuous to say the least, but in fact you'll see that the SC10 video is being used here in addition to the already posted pictures by the OP. It may be that Tyler feels obliged to upload to youtube material he has been sent if it hasn't been already, and thereby a need to say something dramatic about it.
However, a deal of his work has been explained pretty easily as being something mundane, (as in many of the ISS/shuttle pictures)...not massive fleets of UFO's for instance, For Tylers part, he could be a little more diligent, and a lot less sensationalist, that would garner a deal more respect for himself, as it is clear enough that he does spend some time working on each video.

I found this to be very interesting. I played around with the image a bit and it has me at a loss...

This is the original image as a negative. It really shows the contrast between the anomaly and the surrounding landscape.



This is a closeup of the anomaly zoomed in as far as I would go without completely ruining the image. I did increase the contrast and gamma a little.



What I found really interesting was the closeup as a negative...



It looks artificial to me. I wont go as far as to say its stage prop signage or something like that. But it definitely does not resemble the surrounding landscape in any way.

I'm thinking it is just a 'Ceres effect' where a material or mineral just stands out a lot more than everything around it. There are lots of brighter materials/minerals mixed in with the rocks and this is probably just a bright coloured block of those minerals.

The photo being black and white just enhances the brightness even more.

I see you are new,

What does my Newness to this site have anything to do with my post,

Tenth is a mod here,

Meaning that gives him/her the right to act as judge and jury over the validity of content on other sites, if that's what your implying then it would suggest that this site is constantly monitoring his daily videos to maintain the "Philosophical" status quo that he's Hoaxing.

it's a part of the philosophy at ATS to exclude what amounts quite often to clicks to some of the material that SC10 or rather Tyler tend to play with, Tenth is aware that much of the material is tenuous to say the least, but in fact you'll see that the SC10 video is being used here

Although i am NEW here, i have been browsing ATS over many years, and i don't see a great deal of difference between the material that SC10 promulgates to what can be found on this site, maybe the philosophy needs reassessing .


in addition to the already posted pictures by the OP. It may be that Tyler feels obliged to upload to youtube material he has been sent if it hasn't been already, and thereby a need to say something dramatic about it.

Yes i would agree that Mr Glockner needs to tone down the over dramatic speculative commentary , but no one can say he's not genuinely interested in the Alien/UFO phenomena , and as i said previously an over exuberant attitude should not be turned upside down and labeled a Hoaxer, ok he used to make a bit of a living by the advertising , which may as you say given rise to the tenuous nature of some of his material , and so now this advertising revenue has dried up we might get less trivia .


However, a deal of his work has been explained pretty easily as being something mundane, (as in many of the ISS/shuttle pictures)...not massive fleets of UFO's for instance, For Tylers part, he could be a little more diligent, and a lot less sensationalist, that would garner a deal more respect for himself, as it is clear enough that he does spend some time working on each video.

Yes i totally agree, at least give the guy Some credit for his commitment to the cause .

I dont think its artificial, but one day we will find a piece of a craft from a failed mission, and maybe the metal would be hot enough or travelling fast enough to stick on to the rock, and it may just look like this strange anomaly.

That is part of the Mars Rover itself...at least, I hope it is.
Great that you signed-up to ATS, it's an interesting place and you will get addicted.

By artificial I meant manufactured and not natural landscape, not that it is photo fakery. Sorry I wasn't more clear on that.

Whatever it is, its very unusual.

(shortly before that, the atmosphere generation vents)


mars.jpl.nasa.gov...
bigthink.com...

Nebra Sky Disk shows us 33 Degrees for Mars ... (so in 33 Days (8/21 - 9/23) both of Earth's Moons, that includes Mars has an observance, Mars Colony is Underground, evidence of a hollow space in mars, has to result from the overall structure of the plate corruption as evident on the surface of Mars) (the observance for earth's moon is the Sign of Divorce, since it is the apparent center of the Dark Matter Network, plus excitation related to that, in addition to some other things during this period of time).

When you look at the area there are other white rocks exposed.

A huge thanks to everyone who has so far contributed to this thread and I have been really interested by the variety of ideas and dilligent work in trying to gain more evidence in the JPL Mars pictures. After reading through them all, I think there are convincing arguments for the anomaly being either/or, especially considering the differences in the high contrast b/w shots and what we would be seeing if the shots were colour-cast.

To me, it is the shape that still perplexes me...it seems unnatural...however, I took the image into Photoshop and enhanced the details to the extreme. I got this...



Looks to me like there are three small outcrops or protusions in a line, following the contours of the rock, as previous posters have noted. The lighter bit also appears to follow the contours of the rock as it seems to arch over the middle on its right-hand side and it casts a corresponding shadow over the rock to the right of it.

The protusion casts a shadow onto the lower half, which appears to have some kind of 'prongs' or spike shapes to it and does not have the same depth of darkness as the two shadows to the left of it. In fact, the more I look at the rock itself, the more it seems to take on a strange shape, as if it is has roundness to it.

I think I have been looking at it for too long.
Thank you once again also, for all the S+F...much appreciated.
