Looks like a creature, a living creature on martian surface that take the sunbeams on a rock on Curiosity Sol 173 It's some sort of reptile? It's some sort of mantis? For sure this amazing "Object" cast many questions and seem alive. At a closer look you can see front and posterior legs and a strange head and eyes that point to the SUN.

Definitely casting a shadow, but not many questions...


It's an interesting rock, but that's it...


Maybe next time Arken..!

You know what Arken, I may not agree with you 90% of the time. But you are a dying breed on ATS, which is unfortunate.

As for the pictures, I'd have to say that we're looking at rocks, but thank you for sharing

The only way to know would be to see a later shot of the same place, did it move...or be there and touch it...could bite!

Maybe I just WANT to see something as much as the OP does in the hours he must dedicate to analysis of these photos in what I only guess is his own time. I have a hard time saying that's natural though. On Mars, we're told natural is a dead planet with no life OR SIGNS it ever existed. Nothing to see here, move along now.

It may very well not be intelligently created...and I'd say not. That doesn't mean it is or always was dead rock either. Looks...too streamlined a shape. Like natural evolution of form.

Just my two cents and S/F for the wonder in continuing to bring these great topics!

Not saying it isn't a rock, but this is ATS. It could be riding a small red tricycle and wearing a stetson...and it'd still be a rock..

Yep, I agree, it is a "crature"

Whatever that is.

Well, this is a nice one if nothing else. Did you find this on a gigapan (op impaired has made some great gigapans of Curiosity's travels)? The "legs" make the question of "is it or isn't it" remain unanswered for the moment. Odds are - rocks. But this is one I wouldn't put at 100 percent if I were a Vegas bookmaker. "With legs that keep on going", is that the expression?

Even though I think this is just pareidolia effect I must say this is one of the best ones I have seen.
Personally I think it is just the shape of rocks that gives this illusion. The head for example does not seem perfectly symmetrical.

Hobbyists have been making panoramas of these areas.

The interesting rock is over to the very far right in this pano

It is very shiney, so I wouldn't neccessarily think living creature but it is very interesting.

That's a cool find. It does resemble some kind of lizard, but the top or "head" looks like some kind of shiny metal... I got it! Robot lizard


Seriously though its an intriguing pic.

It does look more consistent in the panorama context, but still not entirely consistent. There aren't other rocks around that have the same appearance...

At first glance it looked like a piece of rock. But with the color enhancement, it resembles something sitting on the rock. Almost like a reptile sunbathing.

I am so bored with saying this
If it looks like a rock smells like a rock and is tested as a rock
It's a ****ing rock

Well I just spent a good deal of time trying to find a picture, that was linked in one of the recent Mars threads here on ATS, of a crashed module of Mars with it's debris field, that included some close ups, one of which was clearly a spring. But I couldn't fink it. Maybe someone has a link to it?

I was thinking that what you've found here might be something from that crash site.
