Hey you may like this video of Mars ! All these faces all over the planet that are smothered by NASA editing. If you bear with it, it gets crAAzy:

NASA was really interested in this anomaly,on SOL 189 they took 4 pictures of it, then again 4 days later on SOL 193 they returned and took 4 more pictures of it.

Here are the pictures that were taken on SOL 189:

Has curiosity ever returned to a spot take a second look at something?

The MSL did not change it's location at site 6 between sol 166 and sol 215.

It did not "return".

Phage is correct, the rover was stationary between those Sols. It was at the "John Klein" site, drilled holes and analised the rock sample.

And here's what I've just discovered - the "coin" appears on MAHLI images taken on Sol 181: mars.jpl.nasa.gov...

Sorry guys, it's just a pebble. But it's interesting why the Chemcam picked up those patterns. Maybe it used a specific filter to distinguish mineral composition?

That`s correct, I didn`t mean to imply that it physical moved and then came back, I meant that they came back to that spot with the chemcam a second time.

That`s a good picture, it doesn`t show anything unusual about that pebble.

The chemcam uses a laser and the difference in colors that the camera picks up tells them what material the rocks are composed of, that`s why I asked in a previous post if i would correct in assuming that those marks on the rock are composed of a different material than the rock is since they are a lighter color?
