I sent a U2U to Aleister explaining this, and he said I should tell you. I will copy and paste the message. It was about trying to find another location of this anomaly:
I have already checked. Nothing. The area is either obscured by a rock (which I will believe), but for that Sol 170 ML panorama? See that big black box towards the right?
Object of interest is supposed to be there. But here's the funny part:
When images come down, they're in a sequence. Images 1, 2, 3, etc. That panorama contains ALL images in an unbroken sequence, which means without equivocation that the area was PURPOSELY not imaged.
Purposely. Something to think about...
I'm not saying they didn't image that area because there is/was something there, but it just seems strange that in an unbroken sequence of images, that area was purposely not imaged. I do see that there may have been a camera exposure problem, but still - usually they image the entire area for a panorama like that, and they go through the thumbails and choose which ones they want.
But there were no thumbnails of that area, which means they purposely didn't image the area.
Now, whatever that means... But I thought I should tell you and the community.
