From the same pan-scape. Tucked away in the lower left hand corner of this crop, a dusty spoke thing, maybe too far away for any meaningless extravaganza, but maybe not. Another one bites the dust (literally):

great gifs there ArMaP, interpretation is good, shaded face will do when describing the side in shade, as different from the lines created by the outline that are cast on the ground plain, I don't think there's a specific name in English for it

its odd on the first pic , do you read the word too? strange how the highlights formed that


maybe there will be some color pics to give us more of an idea of its textural make up

did you notice in the pic you posted of the lands slides, the spoked thing ,center top?

You mean this little fella'?



We should breed them and call them Mars Monkeys.

This one is a medium range from the camera, but not too much, and seems to be broken up a bit. But if a fossil, it's at least imbedded in some rock correctly. It sits patiently, waiting for the next dust devil to stir it up a bit.

edit: I see you did a placeholder as I was looking, so now I've got sand and dust all over my clothes and shoes for what? For nothing. Stuff gets into the shoes and in-between the toes, have to get some Mars flip flops for the next foray.

_______________________________________

By the way, ArMap, a very good find. The sand has surely shifted there, and I don't remember ever seeing that before either. Good eye.

ahh the dustdevil, ill bet them things can chew through sandy rocks, after a long time , and plenty of repetition , I could imagine that more denser areas (less susceptible to errosive forces), could end up preotruding at times the slower rate of attrition slowly smoothing , making them less distinct , and of course the build up of sands, further adding to obscurity

its a minefield of visual deceptions alright

No, I didn't see any word.

I hope so.

No, and I still do not, as I don't see any spokes on that rock.

Well, maybe not spokey spokes, but it has a shape which makes it another object in the "maybe, but not likely, but maybe" column, the column itself being a storehouse for things to look at when the stuff goes beyond ATS if it ever does. That nice close-up object noticed by Blue Shift, I hope NASA did poke a camera down near it, at a minimum.

ahh , let me take a guess at what you see then, a textured top that has mildly elevated sections that rotates haphazardly and only in certain parts, around a central point, the highlights of these roughly concentric features, conspire to make the illusion of a broken spoked shape

No, a textured top that has mildly elevated sections, without any rotation around a central point, on the side of the rock that is farther away from the camera. On the side near the camera another mildly elevated sections with no relation with the other section, perspective makes them look closer than they are.

ahh ArMaP pay attention to the shadow to the left, on the ground plain .. this indicates how far back the rock goes its edepth along the x axis, there are no multiple rocks creating this illusion , it appears to me as one piece with a highly textured top.

While saving the images to make a panorama for Sol 540 I found the first signs I have seen of movement, even if it's just two mini landslides, near the centre of the photo.

0540MR2131022000E1_DXXX

What I find more interesting is that it looks like the landslide happened below those two areas instead of being a slide of the top part of the soil.


edit on 15/2/2014 by ArMaP because: adding a missing "the"


How does everyone get the shots like this from part of the panarama...humm I will never figure it out!

Is the black bug in that picture an image artifact?

How about the crawly Marsinsecteum in the forground?

it looks like a rock eater made a home of this rock!

edit on 14-2-2014 by funbox because: no way


The "word' on the rock, looks like a logo I recognize but can't remember, think it was a fast delivery something. Is it a reflected pattern from the rover maybe? It has an OT the O has a face, but I think actually the squiggly lines before O are legs and the O is a head with face and then the T. You can see it very clear with a magnifying glass.

im glad its not just me , I thought I was going mad for a second
, at the time it struck me as saying POT , but now I do see other details too, I don't think the light is projected from the rover tho, just highlighted part of the face in shade , it almost appears like its sloping , to left side of its shaded face looks like its catching some radiocity from it surrounding , highlighting it mildly giving it a gradated sloping look, , weird rock

No, no multiple rocks, pay attention to what I wrote.

I make my own panoramas, so I always know how to get the images.

That's something on the camera, it appears in all photos from the right mastcam.

Edit: just to add a link to the panorama I made with the right mastcam photos from Sol 540 and a smaller one made with the photos from the left mastcam (click the thumbnail below).

Funny! I thought it said Roy or Rot. I don't have a magnifying glass but
it looks like there is an an accent or mark above the "R"?
I can see what you saw though...strange that it is there.

, you see no relation , but I see interconnection, amazing how opposites can appear in such a localised space, ie no relativity from one park of the rock to the next against interconnectivity , connected parts converging to the point highlight

how amusing

It shows that interpretation of what we see is a personal thing.

That's strange, I tried 3 different browsers and I can see it in all.

Works fine for me in Firefox, including the latest flashplayer plugin.
That's excellent work, ArMaP, as usual ... thanks for posting those updates!
