These are fun...couple thumbnails showing skulls and masks?
Curiously, no full size pics.

Some interesting shapes you've found there, they look somewhat different from the surrounding rocks ... at least on the thumbnails. Luckily, it's just a matter of hours/days until the fullsize images will be uploaded to the archives.

Then, we'll most probably be able to tell whether it's just geochemistry at work there, or perhaps something else that got 'buried' beneath the martian sands, long long ago.

those nodules a mildly reminiscent of the traffic light rock from a few pages back , a geological process of some sort I guess or at least the chance of fossilised eggs, maybe in the same Vein as those posted by Blueshift earlier ..

geodes even , talking of such , is there anymore news / pictures of that flipped rock? , they did say they had took some pictures of its internal structure, which if I remember rightly had a crystalline/Morpheus look about it. surely they have released something by now or is this a case of another one that got buried...

Havent all of you notice that Nasa is downsampling some Highres images? What for? The make them useless.

Examples or it didn't happen!


But on a more serious note: a batch of thumbnails (which you call 'downsampled') is usually uploaded 'first', in order to save bandwidth while still getting a first impression of the terrain. The fullsize images are uploaded with a delay, usually a few hours/days later.

So each thumbnail gets a corresponding hi-res image ... or were you getting at the supression-kind-of-conspiracy-theory regarding NASA/JPL?

I don't know what those nodules are. They're fairly large compared to your average blueberry, which tend to be BB sized. Makes me think they're some kind of metallic sphere of hematite or something, and somehow (magnetism? condensation? static electricity?) they attract a relatively thick layer of dust or mud on them. Then after time most of that stuff gets worn away.

That's my guess, anyway. I could be completely wrong.

something cyclical ? seasonal? around and around egg-u-lites so to speak ?

I suppose any kind of cycle will lead to re-occurrence , ..and to think its not even easter yet and we've seen so many spheroids .. im looking forward to next seasons crop of blue-it vintage myself


shouldn't be to long me thinks

Lol

You guys are runing my mental image of sacrifical altars on Mars with all your science!
Stop!

Anyway, I have gone over that day a few times and the rst of the pics imply it did a bit more travelling before 1900 when the rest of the mastcam images were taken...

It's probably a problem on my side, but I don't understand a thing of the above sentence.

, who would have thought the rover had been there since 1900 , no wonder the picture qualitys so crap

If it did travel a longer distance than shown on the images, then it should be possible to identify the additional tracks on future HiRISE satellite imagery acquired by Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter/MRO.

If that were the case, and provided you can prove it, that would make for a great new thread on the subject ... personally, however, I would be more worried about certain imagery (eg. high quality close-up views) which we may not get to see in the official archives. But that's of course pure speculation!

I wonder if that's their to hold and egg in position?, seems about the right shape for a uneventful breakfast

there seems to be a similar one north west of that one too

Looks like the two pieces in the top photo fit together.
I wonder what they would look like if they were put together ?

do you also notice that some of the stars have trails and some don't.. not seen an exposure like that before , even if the camera's polar alignment was incorrectly aligned they would al still streak , even the lower magnitude stars ,.. any ideas ?

Most of the dots in these images are damaged pixels, some of them longer than others. I'm assuming the "crooked" ones are meteors, however, I'm somewhat puzzled as to how a meteor can leave a streak like that in some photos, and not others, or how it can leave a basically identical streak in photos taken several minutes apart. The images from that Sol are interesting. I think they were trying to see the comet, but weren't able to spot it.

are you saying those streaks are something other than the comet ? the only difference I see in your gif is a slight turning to the right of the streak in the lower gif frame

I thought ide imaged the comet a few pages back , what was that dot that passed the camera and altered course then resumed course ?

I don't think it was the comet. Here's another gif with an additional frame added that also shows the thing.

The funny thing is, there are frames taken in-between these that don't show the streak at all. Like it's there, then gone, then back. If it was the comet, it would be in all the in-between frames. Not a cosmic ray spark. Not a repeating meteor. Maybe one of the moons taken in time lapse to show a streak. But where is in-between frames?
