Hi All,

Just surfed a lil around the web (guess I was a lil bored), I visited the Nasa website, and saw the Panorama inside Victoria Crater panorama picture. While I view the "big" picture I noticed something that didnt look right, and after I got the picture down I looked closer. In the left side of the picture one of the rocks got a humm "circle stamp", like something had put a pole or something on the rock with presure. The reason I think it is strange is simply I dont think I seen such a thing on a rock when not man made. Would like oppinions on what this could have been made from, personally I am confused cause an impact or something wouldnt make it perfectly round ?

the full picture can be found on :

www.nasa.gov... (pls be advised it is 26Mb)

A cut from the thing I am talking about can be see at :

www.oas.dk...

I did no alterations to the image, only cut it out.

Best regards
GilDon

I downloaded the full 25mb image. It took me a while to find it on there, but I finally did. If it is real, and if the image hasn't been doctored, it is a strange thing to find on an otherwise irregular landscape.

As to what it might be, or what might have caused it... if it isn't natural, it could have been caused by practically anything... lander of a vehicle perhaps?... or someone/something dropped a cylinder?... It's anyone's guess.

Well spotted

Looks pretty interesting. I scanned around the rest of the pic and couldn't find any similar looking circular imprints. The tracks don't seem to extend to that area either. You can also tell there are cracks in the ground within the circle.

So yeah, I don't know, but seems like a great find. Maybe someone who knew more about geology could weigh in on this.

Isn´t just that arm-device of the Rover?

There are several pics froms mars with that kind of circular abrasion. It is just done by the rover.

That could be a distinct possibility... but

Wouldn't you expect to see more of those marks in the general area, if it was the rover, rather than just the one?

Yep i have to fully agree with you; it is an abrosion by the rover. Its to get the samples of the dirt and such.

rover samples... you can see the dust .... on the upper part of the hole.... no big deal

Yeah, that looks like a spot where the rover took a core sample. You can see the rover tracks one the right that would position the rover to do this.

Yes. That's just the mark left by the rovers' Rock Abrasion Tool (RAT). The Microscopic Imager pictures of these little holes are more interesting.

Always catches my eye how "wet" some areas in pics look

wish it were though

Looks like nasa forgot to airbrush in the red sky.

All the different pictures put together are different colors but the sky is constant.
