Interesting artifact or perhaps a celestial object out of focus as others have mentioned. It appears like it has an arced contrail behind it. Also
appears similar to the sts ufos that have the tails. Best UFO in awhile even if just some dust on the lens or post processing garbage.

Go all the way to Mars...And forget the color camera.
Somehow these photo's are always poor quality.
Come on folks and put on your thinking cap. Seems every thread the same silly questions.
Time and bandwidth. Your mission has a limited time and you want to send as much workable data before your robot dies along with all its instruments
including cameras. Obviously there are going to be different cameras for different purpose including different resolutions and color depth. As anyone
who's ever worked on a computer with pictures or a digital camera knows the bigger the files the more time it takes to work with them including
uploads and downloads. Again the higher the resolution or more colors the more memory space it takes and the longer it takes to download. So, you are
going to download x amount of data from the beginning to end of the mission no matter what, deciding the best bang for the buck is your mission.
So kids, if you're going to critique the engineers who designed these robots try to at least think logically instead of ..
