This is the one that actually gets to me the most:
Those of you that know me, know that I tend to declare 'rock" right away. However, this image gets my attention.
I know it's not a data problem as it's in two different images from Curiosity:
Midway full right.
and of course Arken's original shot:
Zooming in doesn't help of course....but that's okay. Looking at it while also taking the surrounding rocks and terrain makes me.......take pause.
If it's a rock.....it's a very thin rock (along with the other one in the upper part of the original picture).
To me, it even looks highly reflective. If you look in the picture I posted, it looks like it might actually be reflecting light on to the larger rock
looming over it it (the large rock to the left of it...there's a whitish rectangle on it).
I guess we could say that it's just a very shiny, very flat rock.......that just looks very out of place....
But I have to admit that this picture here (out of all the ones I've seen posted by Arken and others) does make me furrow my brow. All the others,
nope. Looks like rocks.
This? I don't know what it is, nor am I suggesting that it's alien/human/part of Curiosity, etc, etc, etc.....
But what I am suggesting is.....it's out of place. Does not look like it belongs there at all.
Has anyone bothered to ask JPL? This is SOL 66, so the rover has moved well away from there by now.
But still, this is one instance where I would like to hear them comment on it.
