Here is a picture I compiled from two pictures taken from Opportunity's Pancam on May 8th.



The pictures are from almost the same angle, however there is a bright "anomoly" in the sky on the later picture (left).

Original images can be found here:

qt.exploratorium.edu 2

There are thousands of pictures from the rovers on the following sites as well.

Interesting.
Is there an 'official' explanation for that feature?
I don't kow what it is, but its certainly interesting.

Probably a meteorite, a sattellite (as Mars has over a dozen orbiting it now), or Phobos or Diemos.

I've found more images.

Two anomolies and SUN

Multiple anomolies and SUN

Looking at the second one, they quite possibly could be stars. I've seen pictures where stars are visible in daylight on Mars, but with the sun in the same field of view?

Those could be anything from dust on the lens, or a moon, or stars or even just some glitch with the digital image sensor. It's really hard to say.
