Like others have said, we need the scale of the object in question. We need to determine a size. It doesn't appear to be very far away from the
rover, yet it is very small. I would put my money on it not being any where near human type size.
Also, I don't see how any one determines how or where it's moving from a still image. This isn't a video, it's a picture. It's hard to determine
direction and movement from a still image, especially something on another planet, and something that could very well be part of the surrounding rock
Humans typically try and create a recognizable figure, something they know about, out of the unknown. The mind will use twists, shapes, shadows, light
and the surrounding environment and horizon to create anything that is even remotely close to something it's seen before and can identify. Of course,
it's only humans looking at this picture, so it will kind of be hard to accurately depict what is in this photo, unless the rover goes right up to it
and takes a picture.
Besides, if this photo contained anything worthy of discussion on the topic of life on Mars, we wouldn't be looking at it. If you all think NASA is
that incompetent, then they clearly fooled you.
The pictures that actually show something important are the pictures we haven't seen yet.
