Are people still this dim??? Really you don't know 'why' the photo's are taken in black and white? Really? I mean seriously? You don't know why?

The chance of an image artifact that fleeting?
I dont know the picture timing, but think the artifact, if stuck to the lense, would leave at least a trace in the next shot or more....
maybe not if it were some windblown object x distance from the lense...(close or far, no matters)
or perhaps a dry whisp of Mars grass or something similar.....lichens come to mind....
But the abolutely aero dynamic apearance still bugs me......
aside, ill bet the announcement has to do with water.......perhaps even a new form of it?
Asked before but not addressed....is there any way to judge the distance size speed etc?
through what we have?
