Well, in that case I'll have a large McKimberly menu with fried ammonites and a box of BBQ crinoids to go!

sounds like a good hearty meal ,,


one from that what's up in the sky' frood again

sol620mast

are these the rover tracks he asks?

what were the whereabouts of curiosity prior to these photos taken on sol620? something odd or curiositys mars graffiti ?

from this pic


blow up and contrast adjust



to me it looks more ridge like than track like, and if its not the tracks it sure is odd looking

What a strange photo.
That doesn't look like Curiosity's tracks at all, to me.a reply to: funbox

Well it clearly isn't a ridge - look at the shadow and compare to the light direction shown by all other shadows in the picture. It is a depression, not a protrusion. A depression caused by the rover's wheels.

Didn't move from 609 until 630 but made a pretty sharp turn between 606 and 609. That would be when those tracks were layed.

great investigative teamwork folks
all inconclusive of course , especially your picture ArMaP , shame on you .. where's the other track ? did it hit a ramp and one track roll to the spot of non description, returning on the same wheel? and if so why aren't we seeing that reflected in the camera frames pre-shot before the currently discussed, they'd be skewiff wouldn't they ?


one of those expansive panoramas would be useful in clearly establishing the track mark theory


one track is just not enough
or even one picture

Well, what about part of a panorama?

Is it better?
PS: the change in colours is a side effect of using Microsoft ICE to make the panorama.

its an interesting comparison ,certainly. scale and distance from the camera may obscure and distort the zigzag pattern to the apparent hexagonal looking shapes on the color photo

from your presented picture



side by side they sit



hmmm im still unconvinced , and after looking at ArMaP's panorama I'm inclined to plumb for skellington of an ancient mars worm, resurfaced for a little sun bleaching

Nice work on these missing "tracks", funbox.

These are all the tracks I see.

Naturally, on the more rocky areas the tracks are much harder to see.

It's always a good idea to keep an eye on our favorite mars rover (and her tracks). We wouldn't want her to get "off track" unnoticed, right? And what a feat it would have been if they suddenly sent her up that stunt ramp! Disappearing tracks? Certainly the smoking gun when it comes to uncovering a potential "simulation".

At this point, however, I'm sure we'd rather stumble across a well preserved ammonite shell sitting somewhere on the edge of a chunk that's been protected from harsh erosional forces in the martian past. Can't await the anticipated influx of pics following up on recent sols where Curiosity was drilling into that sandstone slab!

I am very stupid when it come to some imagination. I can not reference size on the images as that would have help a lot. things that look like house size might be small or even bigger.

Below are some links with additional scale information from different waypoints:

1. Point Lake & Sheepbed Mudstone
2. John Klein Drill Site
3. Shaler Outcrop
4. Dingo Gap
5. Terrestial Comparison

In general, the scale depends on the inclination of the MastCam as well as focal length (34mm and 100mm) and distance to the terrain features in question. Nevertheless, the above images should give you a general 'feel' for scale in different situations.

The shape of the tracks do look quite different, when looking at the pictures anyway. Is this lens distortion, the angle of the tracks as compared to the camera, or a parallel universe Curiosity Rover with just a little different cut of the jib on the tires?

I think it's mostly perspective.
