It looks like one of those pod racers from star wars episode 1.

That is why my initial question was for the dimensions of the crater.

Interesting Thread , maybe someone can Confirm or Deny these Anomolies on Mars as being Something out of the Ordinary , or Explainable Tricks of Light and Shadow.....

That's the back shell and parachute from the Mars Rover Opportunity

Those are dust specks on the "Left Eye" of the Navigation camera, or "Nav-Cam" (the nav-cam has two cameras for binocular 3D vision). These spots appear on virtually ALL of the left-nav-cam pictures, but they don't show up on the right-nav-cam pictures, which are taken simultaneously with the left.

Here is another left-nav-cam picture (taken on a different day the ones in your link were taken) with those same spots:

...And here is the corresponding "right eye" picture, without the spots:

Here are more left-nav-cam pictures showing those same spots:

I can see the dark spots, but it's hard to tell what they are. Perhaps they are sink holes similar to what NASA's LRO spacecraft has seen, described here in this link:

...or maybe just craters.

That's the heat shield of the Mars Rover Spirit

Those are the imprints left by the air bags when the spacecraft carrying the Mars Rover Opportunity made its "bouncy and rolling" landing on Mars.
Click Here for Link (picture and caption in the news article)

You can see them here in this 360-degree panoramic image (images below), toward the left-center and all the way to the right. You can see the path the airbag-encased rover took while rolling to a stop in Eagle Crater:
...By the way, it was named "Eagle Crater" in part because the airbag-encased rover rolled right into it upon landing -- which is like a hole-in-one in golf, hence the name "Eagle" (which is two under par in golf; a hole-in-one is virtually always on a par-3 hole).



NOTE: The file is relatively large (8.5MB)


Here is a smaller version of the same image:

There must be a lot of those imprints around.

Nice video
Can you confirm the source is from NASA?

Nice perfect blue sky, nice stars at night... but I can't seem to find it at NASA

Thanks


Funny though, I seem to recall that the Rovers didn't have a video camera. This film must have been dshot by one of the Secret Astronaut corps....

Either that or you are hoaxing the thread with a video taken in Nevada... oh nice tripod shadow too... don't recall THAT on a rover

That's obviously not Mars. You can see the shadow of the tripod and camera that took this footage (and that shadow didn't look like a mars probe, but rather a simple common tripod.)

If the video uploader is claiming it's Mars, then they are either blissfully ignorant or they are trying to fool us.

So I take it you don't think it was one of the Mars colonists who took it?
I mean the colors are right and all...

sigh.. it is just so hard to tell with NASA these days.. I mean John and I were out by the mine a while back, driving around in the ATV's and we spotted this old Pathfinder

and you didn't even take it home with you???? Zorgon, I am disappointed in you..... If I had the chance, I would have taken Pathfinder home with me

Yeah well no room on the ATV


I wonder if Carl Sagan kept the one he found?
Somewhere in Death Valley as I recall.. One of the Vikings... but I wonder what they are hiding under that 'fake' hill on the right



I think I recall someone finding an old Surveyor on a beach somewhere. Will have to find that picture

Time lapse videos are taken as stills, then made into video.

The bright blue sky is obviously not Mars, I was just waiting for the NASA colorists to chime in, (was rewarded).

Why wouldn't there be nice stars in the night sky from Mars? One would think with tiny moons, 100th of Earth's atmosphere, and 59% solar irradiance earth gets, stars would be more prominent.

What is it about that hill in Death Valley suggests it's not real?

Ah so posted a know falsehood to get a reaction...

Just put it in any photo software and zoom in on the pixels... easy enough to spot

As to the color. even ArMaP agrees Martian skies are blue


But even on Earth, the skies are red during a sand storm
