I know it's the edge of a rock but when you zoom right in it looks good.
Just a bit of fun !

I believe this was answered a little while back. If I remember it right it went something like this;
There is a tube like item that comes out from the rover, and moves down until it hits the ground. Then another skinnier tube, or little scoop comes out from that, and takes a soil sample. I believe the outer tube stays on the ground during the sample taking, so that the whole device does not move around......(?)

If this is wrong People, Please correct My statement, but go easy on me for messing it up! LOL!!!

My memory is terrible anymore, but I like to try to help Others out......

Here's a possible explanation for the feature you're referrencing:


Image Source

The alleged "celtic cross" indeed made some headlines recently and explanations for what it is only came in slowly ... for all we know, it's part of Opportunity's APXS sensor.

Either made by something at the rover poking around, or if not, a riddle within an enigma wrapped around a whatsit leaning against a disenfranchised-illogical question taped to a fnord.

My experience with that camera is that the images make more sense if you turn them 180 degrees:

It looks like they're having some trouble with the brush. It has a loose part right in the middle that is likely gouging out holes rather than just brushing away the dust:

What do you think, concretions or fossilised life forms?

Those are interesting, but they look too different from each other to be some kind of fossilized life form.

Mud bubbles. They (and I) were looking at some of these a few weeks ago, although they weren't as flat as this.
mars.jpl.nasa.gov...
They were apparently caused a long time ago by briny mud oozing out of small holes or cracks in the covering layer and hardening upon evaporation. It oozes out, then builds up, then oozes out some more. That's the way I see it, anyway. I think this is some of the same stuff.

This area of exploration is not thrilling me. Hopefully, we'll get some more interesting rocks to look at when Curiosity starts heading toward the mountain. Otherwise, this area is pretty boring:

Yes, I keep reading that Curiosity is just about there, is at the foothills, dug into the foothills, has the mountain just ahead of it, and I have no idea where it actually is. There are links, I know, somewhere. The only NASA/JPL link I keep in my signature links to the new picture uploads, and even those I haven't looked at lately. You guys are steadfast on this thread, which has slowed...slowed...like Marlasses....and thanks for keeping the lights on so the rest of us can come by and warm ourselves occasionally. I can sense the whatits just popping out willy-nilly soon, and then Curiosity will rev this puppy up like a summer's day on the yesteryear slopes of Mount Sharp.

or one of the wheels will giveway on loose ground and unveil a huge cave entrance into a mystical blue-it treasure trove of antiquity, all cave like and mysterious , I hope its charged up it's lantern and donned it's 70's fashioned cardigan ..

blueshift's right , they need to get out of dodge to somewhere that isn't made of mud cakes..
