Whatever it is, it protrudes past the rock face quite substantially.
Hmmm........curiouser and curiouser

As on the time of my post, sol 132 raw images (Mars Hand Lens Imager page with 'flower' pictures) has just 20 images in 'Subframe' division,
including the following 8 images:
two 'flower' area images, time stamps 17:44:33 UTC and 20:10:10 UTC
two images of rock A (my designator) with deep vertical crack, time stamps 17:39:49 UTC and 20:15:20 UTC
two images of rock B (my designator) with deep horizontal crack, time stamps 17:56:19 UTC and 20:04:38 UTC
two images of rock C (my designator) with deep horizontal crack, time stamps 18:01:05 UTC and 19:59:43 UTC
According to the time stamps, time difference between the first picture and the second picture in each of the above mentioned pairs is:
for 'flower' area - 2 hours 26 minutes
for rock A - 2 hours 36 minutes
for rock B - 2 hours 8 minutes
for rock C - 1 hour 58 minutes.
However, the shadows length and shape in each pair of images looks the same, as if the sun did not change the position on the sky. Does anybody pay
attention to it? Why can it be?
