I noticed some little serrations around the upper edge of the object. Looked up the proposed genus comparison-- Eldonia. This invertebrate had a round body, made up of many fine, radial segments. The serrations observed could well be traces of similar structures. They'd be most obvious at the rim of the object, as they're further apart and more distinct there.

Indeed, it seems to be a pretty good match, at least if it were really a fossil of some kind.

I also think there are some radial segments visible, but for the fine details the resolution simply isn't high enough. But it's of course sufficient to clearly recognize the circular rim.

A close-up image with MAHLI could have provided certainty, but for some reason they chose to move on instead of inspecting this potentially intriguing feature.

Awesome Thread! And Great find!! There are also many anomalies present. I see faces on several of the stones here. Up to left corner, a small 'spider' like insect sits on a small stone. There is another insect right by that 'Spider'.

When those are together it looks like some symbols are on it!

If you look really close at it it looks like some sort of pick hammer type head that pointy piece looks like it's part of it.

I can see how You would think that! I can see that somewhat too. Do You see all the intricate stone work, with faces, and other symbols on a lot of rocks here?

Also, use a magnifier and a lot more will be revealed! Look at that yellow rectangle, go to the right vertical line, and follow that down about half way to the bottom of the image. Looks like one maybe two tiny people lounging on a layed out recliner.??! LOL!!

If you look towards 1:00 on the 3D Cross Eye photo, you see a sphere that looks like it might fit the black circle like a jewel set in an ornament.

Damn i really wanna go play around in that dirt.

I kinda wonder if its a peice from one of the failed Mars missions or something like that.

If it was a picture of unknown origin, I would have said that it looked like a limpet or Hipponix fossil. Neat formation whatever it is. It does appear natural.

When I first saw the image I straight away thought it was shell, some kind of mollusc

I'm pretty sure the spheres are "blueberries". The main object in question looks like a hollow concretion that got broken in two.

Yeah, there are a lot of those lying around, actually. When I was looking more diligently, I tried to look more for spirals or some other shape that would be more difficult to have formed without the delicate touch of life.


There are odd shapes all over the place, however, it's pretty hard to say if they're fossils. Here's one from the other day, Sol 1996.

Here's another one, this one from Sol 2004. It's very small.

that third image certainly does not look natural. it looks like a chain

Boots on the ground, not this NASA BS.

They won't send me. Something about smoking.

My qualifications?

I'm willing to fight martians.

Are you?!

Looks like somebody just left there junk all around a desert.

Looks like a Martian toilet.

I sometimes get tired with all of this "natural" stuff. Even though I'm no blind believer. But whatever gets found is labeled as natural. can't we entertain a notion that it's a remnant of extraterrestial presence on Mars? Imagine this: An element of a long-crashed spacecraft that hit surface of Mars epochs ago, in time when the Earth was different and man was different. Or a part of a forgotten alien base, forever striped and laid bare by unrelenting Martian winds. Or an artifact from a time long lost when previous human civilization reached to Mars. Or a proof of Alternative 3! (okay, this one theory is bunk but fun to visualize nevertheless).

I mean, next time they bump into an alien spacecraft they will label it as natural as long as it's immobile, lights out and not broadcasting anything. I'm half-joking, half-serious of course.

We need to get a mission to Mars, and not a single landing that gives f all, but we'd have to travel the entire planet and excavate under the dirt (good luck with that) to conclude whether something really was there or not. The surface and climate are actually pretty good in concealing any evidence.

Just thought I'd add some imagery to what you mentioned above.

Patella vulgata


Hipponix Antiquatus

This is probably the best evidence i've seen yet.

I usually say 'meh' when it comes to these Martian anomalies but what makes me think is the rocks surrounding it-it could be the effect of flowing water and the resemblance to a mollusk makes it seem to good to be true.

However there could be a mundane excuse such as erosion from millions of years of sand storms (Mars can nail sand storms) and and of course their is electrical equipment-but still it's the best yet IMO; after all some folks' pareidolia lead them to believe a rock formation was an ape like creature.

Obviously its an interior door handle from a 65 Ford Mustang...

Before we get too excited about the prospect of Martian hip joints, I'm thinking this is probably pieces of something that fell off the lander. It seems to be very clearly artificial, and the most likely source for such a thing is, sadly, the Mars probe itself.


Fell off the lander???? ....R I G H T .... just like THIS object fell from the sky!

It also looks to me like an iron oxide “blueberry” that eroded and split in half. You can see examples of them doing a simple picture search. images.duckduckgo.com...
