I know Donald Duck when I'm looking at him. At least his ..

It's a pointy beak. Donald Duck has a flat-fronted beak.

SCIENCE!

Steam,smoke, dust, or sun glare in the upper right corner of the picture?


I haven't done this for awhile, but when I saw that a one-post edit new guy bothered to sign up to the site and come here to post a pic, I'd take a look and find something in it. And, lo nor behold, lots of good stuff right in the middle.

Introducing a Mars snow leopard (bottom), one of Funbox's sea slug creatures (middle) and something from a bad sci-fi movie (top).

The snow leopard, or, if you wish, a female lion or some other kind of large cat, lays on the ground with its ., neck and chest raised majestically, forever looking out over the sandy barren dusty rocks of the Martian plain. grrrrrrroooowwwwllllllll, it softly purrs every millennium or so, growwwwwwwowwwwllllorrrrr:

After a second look at a sol 173 image from Yellowknife Bay, I noticed this interesting 'rock':


There seems to be certain symmetry to it that IMO is not necessarily your usual kind of erosion. Note the top holes left and right of the center and the bottom one, also more or less centered. Could be just a plain rock, of course, but perhaps it would have been worth a closer look ...

Screw your find onto this somewhere and we're beginning to build a skeleton of some kind. Next Halloween on Mount Sharpe!

Your potentials on this post, we have to remember that the rocks on Mars are covered in the brownish-slightly red dust, and that when the Rover has brushed off the dust on rocks - especially in Yellowknife - the rocks are usually white underneath. If you had been in the control room of the Rover, with your keen eye for these shapes, the team could have discussed the potentials and at least brushed the dust off one of them to see if the real color of the potential matched the surrounding rock, or if the color stood out along the shape of the object. Could have should have.

Sifted through the older sections of the JPL archives and came across this sol 234 feature:

Fossilized Equisetum (Horsetail) perhaps? Here go some earthly examples:

Nice find. With the semi-expertise some posters have gotten from contributing to this thread going back into the older pictures seems well worth it. Knowing what to look for now, or at least better at it. Or, like Blue Shift, able to perceive the objects shape under the consistent dust on the rocks.

And am I not mistaken, but have there been no examples of the spokey things in a long time? Are they mainly in certain sections of the ramblin' Rover's trip?

Quite right, Aleister ... I also haven't seen anything intriguing in a while, eg. lines radiating from a central point or spiral-like features, except for vague hints under the crust & dust of the rocks.

You're also right in that it becomes increasingly easier to spot interesting features due to the comparisons we drew between early fossilized lifeforms on Earth and what we see on Mars. So one does know 'roughly' what we should be looking for!

One of the more curious things about looking for these anomalies is that they do indeed have a tendency to consistently correspond to different areas, and perhaps even different depths through which the rover travels. An imaginative person might consider this a suggestion of evidence that the anomalies being found are not all just flights of the imagination.
