Sand on the lens... [NEXT]
Good to see a veteran member making every post count and trying to add something substantive to a thread, but guess what bud? We know who you are, you
don't need to tack on your initials and some cheesy emoticon string to finish your post off, or were you just trying to get a second line in there?
On topic, interesting pictures to be sure, and it wouldn't really surprise me if they turned out to be drones of some kind, whether ours or...
If they are some kind of high-technology drone, I imagine they could be deployed by NASA, it's not too far-fetched in my mind that
they have some other types of scouting aside from just the rover. Then again, maybe whatever kind of ET presence is present in our solar system has
these things constantly scouting for items of interest.
Of course it could also be a piece of dust on the lens or imaging artifact, but I've never seen a piece of dust or sand on a lens that is that well
defined, of course I'm only an amateur photographer but I do have some small degree of experience.
Just for comparison-

Dirt on Lens
Not really the same at all, but who knows, maybe dust on mars has the tendency to look like classic UFO shapes, cause you know.... space.
