I expected to find a thread on this already, but couldn't, I used to search function and browsed the Space Exploration Forum so appologies if I am double posting. Anyway a picture paints a thousand words so here it is.





There is a daily fail article here, I am not going to quote them because it is all pure conjecture, but if you want to look then here is the link.

I personally am at loss at to say what I think it is, it certainly looks metallic and it certainly has been erroding at a slower rate than that of the materials around it. But do I think this is synthetically made? of that I have no idea and was hoping to see some opinions on this from the experts, but alas I could not find a thread. I am actually leaning towards it being something natural as it is pertruding out of a rock, but there is the possibility it has been put there by a living entity. What do you guys think?

Thanks, I suspected there would be a thread on this. Obviously though my search criteria mode was obviously not set to outlandish.

Looks like an itty bitty ball peen hammer to me or maybe a car mounted on a pedestal with the headlights pointed down and the trunk in the air but at 0.5 cm tall it is tiny.

Cigaretteman also posted about it here. I lay no fault on you for missing it in search, I also have posted articles that have already been posted after a search. The search engine here is not all that great and seriously needs a revamp ... just my opinion.

As others have said, there are a couple of threads regarding this object.

Some people think it is a living creature, but it shows up in the exact same location in several pictures taken over several days time, at over a period of at least nine days. That leads me to believe it is part of the landscape (plus it even looks to be part of the rock, not just on the rock).

Just as you suggested, some people on those other threads have suggested it is a piece of some harder rock or metallic ore that is eroding more slowly than the surrounding stone. One person suggested it could be a fulgurite, which is a portion of rock melted by a lightning bolt. That fulgurite could be denser than the surrounding rock, and thus erode more slowly.

I suggested that it could also possibly be an ancient metallic meteor that became part of the sedimentary rock.

Thanks for the reply, that seems to just about sum it up for me, if it was anything more than that NASA certainly wouldn't have released it in my opinion.

Just came across this post and had to smile when reading about that "crature" again. I think Arken deserves a merit or prize for having chosen such a 'dramatic' title for that thread!!
