This was cropped from IAS viewer image PSP_008938_1750_RED.NOMAP.JP2

It appears to be an upright being walking across a sandy Mars surface. The long shadow shows the height of the creature, while the head and shoulders are clearly visible. If this were indeed a rock rolling across the sand, it would leave a straight line of imprints, not a zig-zag pattern. The height of the "rock" from its long shadow would indicate that it would leave long flat imprints, not footstep sized prints.

Very cool picture. If we only had a distance scale we could work out exactly how tall this thing is by it stride. Unless is something like a tumble weed here on earth where it kind of roll hops along in a strong wind.

im gonna flag this because...

a rock isnt going to skip in oblong pattern's to mimic footstep's.

and it's kinda tall or as the shadow is implying .

so wind is out if the picture .


hmmm by gosh this could be footstep's.
but by what.

It is an interesting theory, but I think that what we see in the image is just bouldertracks. This doesn't resemble a walking pattern, at least not in my eyes.

You also say that a tall rolling rock would leave large flat imprints. But how do you know that the "thing" is so tall? Which references do you use to establish that?

The 'footprints' appear to be too inconsistent for my liking.

Nice find none the less, an idea of the size would help us a lot I'm sure.

My guess would be a 3 or 4 foot tall being with an oversized head compared to its shoulders.

Maybe it's bigfoot? Sorry, I just had to.

Great find and a very thought provoking picture.

My guess would be that this is not a completely flat surface, more of a slanted deep sandy surface. Imagine walking along the sides of some dunes at the beach, looking back the footprints would seem random as its not easy to walk in this type of surface.

If it is a slanted surface like a somewhat steep hill, then a rock could very well roll/bounce/skip down the incline and make marks like that im sure.

That is an interesting photo! The thing about it that is bothering me is the difference in the size of the tracks, they seem to vary somewhat. Also some of the tracks seem to be ths same size as the "being" who is making them. I would like to believe there are beings or Mars but this does look like a rock trail to me. Maybe the rock is oblong in shape, therefore creating a sort of wobbled track. I don't know, it IS an interesting photo, although I can't saw for sure exactly what I am see.

Very interesting find.
starred and flagged.

I have no idea at the moment but am looking at the pic in detail at the mo.... don't think it's an entity but then, doesn't look like boulder/rock tracks either?

hmmmm



The closest shadow to it on the right is also longer than any of those in the full size pic and almost equal to that of the "being"?
What could the other one be?

I'm thinking rock now....

Edit: changed my mind slightly lol.

Even if it weren't a sloped surface the wind on Mars is intense, right?
What if the stone were made of pumice (lava rock) it could be fairly large and still be light enough to be moved by a strong wind.

It certainly looks like some dude. The shadow of the "walker" is just twice as long as the rock's shadow. I don't know how big Mars rocks are, but i doubt they are massive, so if anything this thing is about 4 / 5 feet tall. I don't think it's a rock, as it is taller than is is wide, as shown by the shadow relative to the rocks, and rocks aren't long, and rocks don't stand upright. (And if they do, what fluke would it be that it has been blown along by a strong wind and landed "sticking out" of the ground?)

Good find, certainly interesting.

Another theory is, a sunset is casting long shadows, and the "rocks" are only slightly protruding, where the "walker" is a slightly larger rock, but the shadow exaggerates it's height.

Edit: To write more stuff.

Dude! How did you know I blew coffee out my nose when I read it!

Anyway responding to anothers reply about boulders, have you ever been to the American SouthWest? there are some really strange rocks and boulders out there in the desert, standing on end or perfectly balanced on top of hills. I believe anything is possible, It could be some dude walkin' around on Mars, But.........................

What really intrigues me is if you look very closely at the 'rock' it appears to have two appendage like arms sticking out.
Funny looking rock. Interesting none the less. S and F.

It is impossible to place a scale on this picture. The alien could be millimeters tall or hundreds of feet tall. By definition a boulder is an odd shaped rock which means that it will NOT roll in a straight line. Especially if it is rolling diagonally down an incline. From this image it is impossible to tell the elevation, i.e. which direction is uphill and which is downhill.

The OP's guess seems to fit with the popular description of a Grey....interesting...

There is no question there are rocks that have very odd shapes, even some in Arizona that seem to stand on end, but you don't see these rocks rolling around.

From the length of the shadow, the rock (if it is a rock) would be long and slender, not round. If it were round, it would roll, no question. If it is long and more slender, oblong shape, it would not roll, unless it was laying on its sides, which it clearly is not. If by some strange occurrence this oblong "rock" were to roll down the hill, it would almost certainly not hop up and down, but roll "head over heels" style, leaving large flat imprints, then short "end" imprints, then repeat the pattern. The pattern visible does not show this action happening.

Strange!

It is very possible to put a scale on the image in question, just wait until ArMap takes a look at it, then we will know the approximate scale.
