To me it looks like either sand on the metal piece or corrosion of the metal piece rather than a reflection. However, if it is corrosion it means the atmosphere is rich in humidity thus corroding the metal. if it's dust then, well, it's dust.

nice find tho!

I wasn't looking to enter into discussion on this but I thought I would bring this to ATS's attention.



Well It ain't a rock at least


EDIT TO AD - In the interest of not spreading confusion - this image is highlighted on the site as being laser shots from one of the instruments. Sorry about that.

By the way, this is how Curiosity has been driving around and shooting stuff with ChemCam laser. (video based on the actual movement and ChemCam data)



Pew Pew!

No idea what this could be but it looks metalic?

Here is the original higher-res image (many images taken between sols 59 through 100 were used to make that billion-pixel mosaic) that shows the area in question that the OP mentioned. This image was taken on sol 78:

mars.jpl.nasa.gov...

I don't see any "vulture" spots on this image. It could be just a noise artifact from the creation of the multi-image mosaic, or noise from the white-balancing that was done.
