does anyone know what the shiny metal object is in the far top left rim of Bonneville??

"false" color Bonneville crater pic

I know a thousand people will speculate that we put it there, but it was odd that in each of the black and white photos of the same crator ive looked at on previous sols have had some sort of image fault there.

for example:

white spot photo


ideas? opinions?

Could be the heat shield, parachute, i dont know. But i'm quite sure that it was just a piece of metal or something that came off of the lander.
