For a moment there, I thought that photo was showing a tin-foil covered, marshmallow 'peeps' with long ears like a rabbit -- yummy. Once again, it's difficult to tell what that object could possibly be based on a photo taken from several miles away.

The object isn't several miles away -- it's only a few yards from the rover, which itself was only a few yards from the rest of the lander when the picture was taken in 2004.

That's why I think NASA's theory that this is a piece of the lander makes sense -- since the lander is close, and another photo was taken of a similarly colored object right below the lander itself.

...and the fact that it seems to move in the wind lends creendence to the theory that this is perhaps a piece of the lander's airbag. However, we will probably never know for sure.

Peeps are certainly tough enough to withstand the harsh Martian atmosphere::


Rumors of Peeps' purported indestructibility have evolved into a myth that has come to define the product's place in the lore of pop-culture ephemera. In an effort to establish this legend as fact or fiction, scientists at Emory University performed experiments on batches of Peeps to see whether they could be dissolved. They concluded that the candy is indeed difficult to destroy, according to CNN reports.

NASA's secret agenda

The analysis of the rover being driven deliberately over the thing, and the way it just left a smear, rather than torn cloth or whatever if it was Earthly, leave the question of the thing's identity very open IMO.
