Yes, ArMaP has it right. That's the brush.

Of course, NASA being NASA, they can't call a brush a brush, they have to give it a zippy three-letter acronym. It's the DRT!




You can see it in action in this video:

I haven't done one for you for awhile, so here's the cannonball pile, not exactly round, and if shot from a cannon would flail in the air. I should get searching some of the pictures myself, haven't had a good one in awhile for lack of trying. And where did Char-Lee go? I hope she comes back for the Buttes.

thanks aleister nice to see you. No good ones for a while. Iwas looking forward to a indepth look around those asteroids but shiny metal does not seem a priority.

I thought i had found a stone warrior but maybe not , bottom right mars.jpl.nasa.gov...
That whole area looks unatural to me, cannoballs or blueit balls?

Looks very much like an imaging artifact to me. Notice how the lines are totally horizontal and vertical, and not only that but they exactly fit within a single 8 x 8 JPEG compression block:

This image has loads of potential anomlies , and yes armap, a black rod sticking up from the ground mars.jpl.nasa.gov...

I think curio has stumbled into an interesting area. So much for the rapid transit,curio seems to be heading away from mount sharp. And where are those shiny"meteorites"?
I always thought meteors were black

Interesting area, indeed. I believe the 'black stick' is just a crack in the rock, if we're talking about the same thing (9 o'clock-ish, left of center).

Yesterday, I made a panorama from the latest sol 646 MastCam images (of which the image you posted is a part):
www.gigapan.com...

The formations & features there look a bit different from what we saw during Curiosity's trip on recent sols. Will have to look into that again later on but thought it might be worth posting the link.

I don't think it's a crack, it's just the shadowed right hand edge of a squarish rock that is lying a little way in front of the similarly coloured long rock behind.

Adding a bit of contrast, you can just about make out the outline of the rock:

a reply to: lambros56

Much appreciated, Lambros. The background does look a bit like a river due to the dark-coloured sand and the typical windblown patterns on the dunes (with less elevation than where Curiosity is now).

The larger stones in the foreground look interesting to me, IMO they display some erosional features that are rather distinctive ... perhaps I could be more specific in what I mean if we had some MAHLI close-ups of that area.

Looks like we're going to get a "drive-video" of Curiosity with a straight down view from the MARDI descent camera. It's been the the biggest upload of images to the MARDI archives since Curiosity's landing:
mars.jpl.nasa.gov...

Looking forward to the final clip, should be cool watching Curiosity kicking up dust on the martian surface!
