Somewhere in the Murray Butte Mesa area.

Lens smear, nothing to see here.


Rap is now more popular than rock, go look at that......

It seems like the shadows of the surrounding rocks are angled towards the camera, but the anomaly casts no shadow. That suggests that it is either laying flat across the image or that the image has been edited to remove evidence of it standing up. One of that dichotomy seems more likely

Looks like it's a crack or crevasse in the ground?

I don't think it's something standing up though.

its kinda blurry

reminds me of looking out to the horizon in a desert or on a hot road and you see that blurry hazey wavy stuff floating around

like a mirage effect

a sign of temperature variation ?

Ummm...it's a vertical crack in the rock face...the sand is silted around the base area and makes it appear a standalone object...

Enlarge the area (I used 300%) and you can clearly see what I mean...

The main reason it stands out so much is that it's a lone vertical crack in a hillside of horizontal cracks...

It does kind of throw you at first...

No, a sign of too much JPEG compression.

We've had a great discussion on it:

ATS: Did Curiosity Photograph A Plant Or Tree On Mars In Sept. 2016?.

It’s a rock. Just need to look at the whole picture.

Looks like many horizontal twig like limbs protruding off the center though.

That's amazing there was already a discussion of it. This one picture is one of many that are stitched together making up a panoramic view. I think, worth mentioning is that at the foot of this picture appears to be Quartz Veins. Signs that there was oceans on mars at one time. If man ever goes to Mars this would be an excellent spot to look for fossils and minerals.

Ummm...those are the eroded edges of horizontal layers of sedimentary deposits on either side of the vertical crack in the rock face...

Its a tombstone. A cross.
Seriously that's what it looks like to me.

I agree, without additional perspectives, it looks to be part of the terrain, not a 3 dimensional object. I am sure if more images were taken at different angles, the object will either not be seen or show up as a mark in the terrain.

One of the reasons NASA chose that location for the Curiosity's mission was the fact that everything appeared to show that that crater was once a big lake, created by streams coming from the north and accumulating sediments in the centre of the crater, creating Mount Sharp.
