It has been known for years that Mars exhibits tremendous sand storms, sometimes they are planet-wide storms. The rovers, and most recently the Phoenix lander have taken "videos" (a succession of still pictures, actually) of cloud movement on Mars.
I'm sure the winds of Mars technically make a "sound", but since the atmosphere is very thin, I suspect sound waves would not propagate very well and Mars. Sound waves need "something" to travel through, and the thin atmosphere is probably insufficient to move the sound waves very well.
I doubt a human on Mars would be able to hear much of anything making a sound at a distance from our ear; HOWEVER, I think a human would be able to hear the wind blowing past the ear, or a microphone would pick up the sound of wind blowing past it.

The problem with this anomoly is its proximity to the rover, but scanning the rest of the terrain, it is the most oddest feature that discernable.

Thats the panoramic imaging technology of satalites. I think yes, there are like two or three humanoid forms in the rocks. Two toward the left, and one over on the right. I think the more important question to this image is not so much in rocks. The question I have is: Mars is allegeldy barren and void of life right? Why is there so much green in this image, and secondly, why is there water? The green looks like either algae, or lesser vegetation. Both indicative of breatheable atmosphere. Water: if you look to the upper right when in a greater view, you will see a small pool of water. Mars, if it really IS like we are told, would not have surface bodies of water. That pool up there, would have evaporated and been frozen simultaneously. Either way it would not have waves, nor would it be such a dark blue. I think I see the relevance, Mars is definitely habitable, either that, or someone got their hands on a test image from somewhere in the deeper Mojave Desert.

Why is most of it blacked out? I wasted 5 minutes of my time waiting for that to load.

What about the stupid LAKE in the upper right?
*walks away mumbling and shaking my head* It's reflective. It's translucent... what more do people want- a fishing boat in it? Geeze............

i can see patterns in the sand to the left of the "lake" - animal shapes , alien writing?
anyone else see this? helps if you zoom in.
is there a higher-res version of this image... might be something to do with jpeg compression maybe?
