I am saying UFO because it's simply an "Unidentified Flying Object".

This was brought to my attention by a friend. I blew up the 3 NavCam images (Resized them) then uploaded them to an animated GIF hosting site.

The object in question is in the sky - top-middle towards the left.

You will notice a black dot in the sky. Those are just overloaded pixels. What I see is towards the left of that. It's whitish.

Does anyone else see it? I will try to crop them and keep them aligned and try again if anyone thinks it's something worth looking into.

If it's nothing, no big deal.


From Sol 154 - NavCam Left (animated GIF):

makeagif.com...

Raw images from NASA/JPL:

mars.jpl.nasa.gov...

mars.jpl.nasa.gov...

mars.jpl.nasa.gov...

It moves in somewhat of a triangle trajectory, based solely on the 3 images.



And with the colors inverted:



The three white dots in the inverted images are overloaded pixels.

Edit - Added cropped version and negative version to the OP - courtesy of my friend.

are you talking about the lighter faint dot in the top left quarter of the pictures?
I thought I saw other dots but turned out to be grub on my monitor!
Ok, if it is the light dots I see them.

The light dots, yes.

Here are the time-stamps. All three images were taken within 26 seconds.

ooOOOoh that is pretty fast movement then, if it is an object in the sky and not a 'bug'..... assuming you get bugs on mars.

From my friend who may make an account tomorrow if this is something out of the ordinary:

Ordinarily I ignore or poke fun at most of these but credit where credit is due , you look like you might be on to the most legitimate head scratcher yet . It's a crying shame there's not more of it though .

Very interesting...

I have no idea what it could be.

Me too. I'm a skeptic these days...

And I put raw images together to make mosaics and panoramas (and other processing) on MSL Curiosity images.

So this doesn't appear normal to my everyday viewing of these images, and I've been through thousands.

But I just don't know on this one...

could it be a meteor shower?
having a completely different atmosphere than earth , any meteor would just pass close without actually having to burn up in an atmosphere with no oxygen.

I am no expert, just puting out something from outside the box.

This object appears to move in ways inconsistent with meteors.

But it could be a possibility.

The object in question seems to move upwards, then it appears to make a sharp turn... So I don't know...

I noticed from looking at the animation that in the file timestamped 07:21:53 that there is also a little black dot that is not in the other frames.

I was of the thought that it was not 1 meteor, but rather a cluster of them which breifly show a few of them as they hit the atmosphere

It's always possible...

Could it be a satellite?

My first response is that it's one of -- well, for those who watch and carefully, a certain type of...this is too vague, I know, but partly because I have noticed whenever evidence of them pops up it is quickly buried in disinformation, but to think they come from or can travel between here and Mars somehow...is it us? I always lean toward that but these...critters, if that's what they are and what this is, which is very much debatable, I don't know...

Based on the time stamp sequence, it looks like the white dot starts upper left, then goes down, then back up to the right at about the same level as the first frame.

I wonder what that means it could be...
