In my part of the world it was afternoon so i was fortunate enough to watch the entire Curiosity landing and get the very 1st raw images before they
we updated with slightly bigger ones. It should be noted that the only difference between the 1st raw ones and the next batch is photo size, the
details of the image remain the same minus some slight alterations to the background of a particular image.
Here are the raw images i posted the other day, the actual image, the object on the horizon outlined, the zoomed raw image with no alterations.

As you can observe there is an object on the horizon with right angles, and two distinct vertical lines. At this stage in my findings i was about 75%
sure this was some kind of structure.
Now as some quickly pointed out these haz cam photos still had the dust covers protecting the lens or the lens had dust on them. This makes logical
sense i guess, then i started thinking does dust really form right angles & straight lines what are the odds?.

Here is the same zoomed image again, this time the bottom image has had some contrast and brightness adjustments revealing the dust is actually in
front of the object/structure. What does this mean?
1. I would now say that the dust can be seen in front of the object/structure on the horizon, proving it is a seperate entity i feel it is a high
probability of being a real object/structure. i'd say about 85% chance.
2. This is somehow a reflection of some kind, but it would have to be curiosity reflecting itself which would indeed lead to alot of interesting
I'm sure more answers will come in the future but for now this is what we have.
