ah , you got to have that one on here , its up there with the 'pharaohs head' and 'the face on mars'




funBox


Yet another human shaped face rock stares out at us and tempts the faiths to shadow it different - that's fun when the shadows and light, the essence of most great artwork, come together accidently to pop up one of these. Someone else might discover it independently, put up a thread here, and wow the community. On this thread that's a day on the beach Nice find. And I do like your blue rocks, the pyramid, and even the pyramid next to this guy here. Another one that a tabloid could run and sell some extra papers.

As for the jpeg compressions, which I know little about, they do seem to give out general outlines - although deep zoom throws up ghosts and skeletons.



ive seen less interesting things in tabloids that's for certain

a play of light and shadows , hasn't that always been ?
but like most things , double think comes into play and one day well be using zoomed into animated gifs , to show occultation data , and rock placement , to show up a perspective pareidolia , and the next day well be damming the zoom , hailing the jpg artefact as the liberator of anomalousness , ive seen a fair amount of bleed in my time, you have to have a colour there to bleed in the first place, and its not always caused by compression Interpolation, Chromatic aberration can cause colors to bleed and overlap too

its a murky game cgi


maybe the easter island statue know

Clean up on Aisle Mars.

Those holes in the wheels Blue Shift pictured are worrisome. I didn't know large holes had been punched thru. That tells me that one large pointy rock getting stuck in there can do more damage and either rip or get the rover stuck right on top of it (depending on weight and size), so NASA needs some new space-age material to construct the next set of rovers wheels (I think the next one is set for 2020 - and my often repeated wish of sending dozens of them off all over the solar system, dozens should be sent to Mars and its moons alone) or else this will keep happening. Strength of material versus weight of material factors in, maybe some new grapheme substance or other "exotic" light unpierceable material will be available by that time.

The several new faces (I like your easter island statue comparison) are very good, and so are the discoveries. The next big discovery is right around the corner....

There seems to be a spiral formation on a rock, in the top left corner area of this picture by Curiosity on Sol 551:


Another view of the same spiral, same Sol, unfortunately out of focus:


Probably assuming that it could be a spiral snail fossil would be too much speculation, still it should deserve further investigation.

tells me you have a good eye and enjoy this stuff. Good to meet you.

Yes, that "barnacle" (for lack of a better name) find by you guys, and it's nice to have someone independently second-the-discovery, might be one of interest to professional marine-exobiologists. I would think, anyway, it's a curious shape for rock formation to have taken - if so, another of nature's artworks - found somewhere you'd expect to find it, if I understand right, in the sediment of an ancient lake/seabed (or was it more like a pond? How deep would Gale Lake have been?).

That's a good question, for which I haven't seen an answer.

Mount Sharp is thought to be entirely sedimentary in nature. This implies that Gale Crater was entirely filled with water at some point in its history. Gale Crater is about 5 km deep.

Interesting ring at the bottom of the picture also.


Then your bottom picture is full of cool stuff including this alien Marsamal Octopi

If a probe came to the Earth from a planet where things grew big, like the Dinosaurs did here only much bigger. If the probe was really big and was looking for life. I wonder if our towns and cities would look like cracks or fissures in rocks with a somewhat natural looking grid pattern.

How would we tell them we are here? Our air force trying to catch up would look like dust particles on the cameras. They would cause a ton of destruction as they sampled their way around...seeing nothing.

I think the only way to tell a life form would be if we saw more than one exact creature because they may just be to weird for us to spot! Or if we see something move from frame to frame of course!

I have looked at tons of photos the last few days I no longer bother with the wheels or spoked things,there are so many!

that would be more than an eye opener for sure , a small herd of mars-a-lo , wandering acros the sands, yep if we spot them I might just do a gif in platinum ,

hey don't start passing up the wheels and spoked things! , we could get a catalogue on go,or a caravan.., drop em up,

The things are biting again, on Mars. Nice finds, the ring, the octopi clump. As funbox suggests, if you come across the spoke things near the camera, can you image those? Thanks. I think we have a very nice collection of spoke things now, and if there are more examples that just adds to the "case for the spoke things" being marine exobiology in nature, especially with that data from Phage I wasn't aware of.....

...and had no idea of, thanks Phage - so Gale Lake was actually Gale Sea. If it was five kilometers deep (3.1 miles in American terms) that's huge, that's talking deep sea here on earth. Much much deeper than a lake. So all these things we've been looking at were at one time five kilometers down at the bottom of a sea? That makes more sense, when finding and pointing out the marine looking examples of these discoveries (and here I'm talking from the point of view of yes, people on this thread have accumulated several good examples of specific shapes, but always including the high probability that these are rocks while leaving open a certain percentage chance that lifeforms are being found).

Gale Sea

defiantly more than enough room for little swirly thing to filter mars plankton,

blueshifts and Elfkrins swirly thing



sorry Blueshift , I couldn't resist blowing it up


@Phage , have you found that marsoupial yet ?

...and I couldn't help copying off the post and picture again, for emphasis. That sure looks like something marine in nature, especially given the color difference from the surrounding rock. Blue Shift blue shifted with this one, an example of a whatsit? that seems worthy of showing off to panels of experts positioned on the other side of the computer screen.

Someone found marsoupial tracks awhile back, but nobody has tracked down the critter itself yet. Tie me kangaroo down, sport.
