Please take a look at this photo, download and enlarge it.
Very easy to see things, I carn't believe that I pulled this from ...


Crater

From Nasa:
"NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity used its navigation camera during the rover's 1,278th Martian day, or sol, (Aug. 28, 2007) to take the images combined into this view. The rover was perched at the lip of Victoria Crater, which is about 800 meters (one-half mile) in diameter.

After assessment of possible routes for Opportunity to descend into the crater, the rover team selected a site farther to the right along the rim. That selected entry point lies near the ripple of bright soil visible just outside the crater near the top center of this scene. The driving distance for Opportunity from the Sol 1,278 viewpoint to the selected entry point is about 40 meters (about 130 feet).

This view is presented as a polar projection with geometric seam correction. "

Do you guys think that this is real, Iam very confused at the moment on this, maybe a slip up from JPL? regarding "smudging" or airbrushing it out?

If you guys have seen this before then the Mods here can delete it.
Thanks for looking.

Looks like a composite photo of Mars surface around the probe.

What did you expect??

The title of the NASA pic (look at the site) says "it's a crater". Now you say "I've found a crater!".
Remarkable.

Did you even look closely? You aren't seeing a special base nothing of the sorts, look at it, it's the satellite body.

In that picture alone I see multiple resistors, solar panels, antenna, what appears to be a camera. All way above the mars surface.

I don't know exactly what you were thinking, but that's all I see.

Would help if you actually said what you "see."

I see a polar overlay with the body of the craft.

The image is taken from the camera directly above the rover.

It looks like the top of the planet, but it is not.

If you look at the high res photo and zoom in, you can see what appears to be a landscape and a tower is really the panels and antennae of the rover.

IT IS A PANORAMIC VIEW OF THE MARS SURFACE.

Ok

Then try this picture... download it, enlarge it and tell me what you see, if the rover is sitting on top of the rim of that crater... the rover can not be in two places at once.
Sorry if I am confusing anyone here.

Look here: Another view

Thanks for looking.

Are you suggesting there is a second Rover inside the crater?
I´m sorry, i cannot see it.

No idea on that, is that picture a photo in a photo?
maybe someone here can explain how this is done.

its just a 360 shot made from the rover. the black part is the area the camera can not take a photo of. basically, the camera itself.

Exactly what nightrider said, all it is is the rover going in a 360 turn while taking a picture and then all the pictures being stitched together. Thus, dead space is black. Which is where the rover is.

Lyrian, nice to see you stealing my avatar


just kidding

Thanks to all for clearing this up.

It's a great Avatar... but if you want me to change it, just say so.

Umm...I don't see anything. So no I do not see what you're seeing.

My gosh, OP, you really have found something! Let's see those close-minded skeptics explain just how the Lord's own Ten Commandments ended up on Mars.
