Blown out highlights that just happens to take the shape of a rectangle? There are more of those in the picture (bright whites), probably different types of material within the rock that gives of a bright reflection.

Here is a crop with the highlight slider put at min and shadows at max. It reveals a little more detail



Common trail marker

I must've been looking at the wrong place, I was looking at the rock that looks like the deep sea viper fish (middle left.)

As for the item of interest ill take a shot in the dark and I dare say that it could be ice crystals and if I'm right that could hint at a stronger atmosphere than previously thought, Or I could be wrong and it's just a camera processing anomaly. I'm backing the former because in many cases i'm more wrong than not. But in most cases i'm right so now i'm confused.

I inverted the colors and zoomed in real close on the rectangle and the white pixels on the bottom half of the rectangle are darker than the white pixels on the top half. They all look bright white in the picture because it`s a black and white picture.
if it was a color picture we would probably be able to see that the bottom half of the triangle is less white than the top,and the top is less white than what it appears to be in the picture.

I looked for a mast cam color picture of that rock but there doesn`t seem to be one.

I believe the white in the original picture is made up of the same material we see in other pictures from the same area.
These are some of sol1668 mastcam images.


It also looks like this rock has the same eroded features except it's not the same white material.

Could be a mix of both?

To it being a trail-marker doesn't there has to be a somewhat (visible) trail in the first place?

But you're probably right, it's a Mnt. Conner trail mark.

Nice. I played with the color scale a bit but it didn't do much.

What has me most intrigued is the symmetry of the anomaly. It seems to be very rectangular and the mark on it is fairly centered. Its unusual contrast to the surrounding landscape combined with what seems like manufactured symmetry make this very interesting to me.

there`s always the possibility that it`s a piece of debris from one of the many probes and landers sent to mars that disappeared or crashed.

if I remember correctly there were about 8-10 probes/landers sent from various countries to mars that either broke apart or they lost contact with them as they orbited the planet or tried to land on the planet.

Nice find, no idea what that could be but it's very interesting to show up in 2 pics, sort of rules out artifacts I would think.
Also, Those pictures look like a dried up ocean floor.
