People can go on and on and on about debunking rocks, but not one person wants to take a guess at my white spec?
Have you tracked down what specific image that spec is from (considering the image in the OP is a mosaic of many images stitched together).
If you want to start investigating the white speck, a good place to start would be with the original image, considering it may be higher resolution.
Actually, there may be several pictures taken on different days of that particular group of rocks in which the white speck you mentioned is sitting.
The different pictcures may give you different angles on the object. If you find one of the original images, please tell us so we can look for
The original images used for that mosaic were taken by the Mast camera (Mastcam) between October 5 and November 16, 2012 (Sols 59 through 100), and
could be found here (the mast camera image browser is on the bottom right of this page):
By the way, there is a second similar white object in that image. It is in the sand at about the "11 o'clock" position from the left wheel of the
rover, directly in from of the rocks. This white object is included on the panel on the right side of the webpage in which they were pointing out
interesting features. They call it "Shiny Object".
