well I would say its the closest thing we have come to a spiral, its a shame the other picture is so out of focus in the foreground, that would have shown a fair bit of detail , I wont insult everyone by blowing it up , as you've all no doubt seen it

kangaroos on mars? playing washboards?, well I suppose the mars-a-lo have to eat something ,food chain an all


ive lost the link for this one

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 ?

funBox


...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.


Is that another one on the ground below the rock and a little to the right?

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



When looking at this marvelous, white-balanced panorama (sol 551) acquired somewhere between the waypoints KYLIE & JUNDA, one really gets the feeling we're looking at the dried-up bottom of an ancient sea or even ocean.

This place seems to scream 'marine biology' and IMO you can get a good notion of features with spirals, spokes and other basic shapes (that occur so often in marine evolution) encrusted in rocks, especially at the edges & sides of some of the bigger chunks in that area.

It's a bit frustrating, though ... we can never zoom in enough to see the fine details. Not in the nearfield, nor in the mid- or farfield. So it's really just a notion for now. Hopefully, some of what we all hope to see and find will be clearly visible in some of the next images updates by NASA/JPL!

It's something. But look at the entire rock that the 'barnacle" is in (Jeep left the link to the picture) - the entire top half of the rock is out of focus, with all types of interesting shapes there in the rock itself, but out of focus. The bottom half, with barnacle-bill, is in focus. And even though the top half is out of focus, the sand right behind it is in-focus. Maybe it's me, and I'm out of focus.

IMO that's got to do with the panorama stitching itself. For that particular area there was only that one pic available. On that one image, the big chunk (nearfield, bottom part of this pic) is 'out of focus' in favor of having the mid- and far field 'in focus'.

Apologies if I'm just explaining something that's more or less trivial and obvious, hopefully we'll get another view of that chunk in some of the upcoming updates ...

I know about the stiching, but this one seemed odd because the out-of-focus section seems to only occur along the rock itself, so it includes the top half of the rock and not the sand right behind it, which still isn't mid or far field, but right alongside the rock (at least in perspective). Luckily the focus was fine on the part where Blue Shift picked up on the whitish spiral.

It's a blend of this image and this one.

The first one shows the bottom part of the rock 'in focus'. The missing top part, which is 'out of focus', was taken from the second image. There, one can see that the chunk is sitting on a small elevation, with a slight slope behind it ... that's where the sand gets back in focus again.

Judging from the thumbnails in the sol 551 archive, the total amount of images should add up to 440. That means 130 images are still missing, including those of MastCam Left. However, I'm not sure whether or not we'll see that chunk completely 'in focus' after those updates ... let's keep our fingers crossed!

discuss , and have some fun


*winding the large lever , a deep bellowing grinding can be heard in the looming foothills, funBox's head slowly decends into the deep clipped darkness of his neck*

for instance , what do you see in comparison to what ArMaP has explained so well



funBox


Yes fb I see plenty of problems all the usual stuff typical of these images on this and other Mars & Moon threads using HYPER zoom, various jpeg issues re colour and the very obvious pixel blocks.

Oh and the obvious lack of detail !!!

what do you see next to the pixels of solid colour , do you notice that these pixel change to a lighter colour of the original blocks of colour ?

Interesting shell shape indentation at the bottom of the rock



Also the front triangular smaller rock has a bunch of these circles

Also if you look at the bottom pixels of the colour bars one pixel becomes darker.

indeed , but not actually darker than the block colour , well done


looks like a small influx from mast 554 have a look see if you can spot something unusual

funbox, nice blow up of a pic of Char-Lee's find of maybe a Grimese on a Half-Shell. The shape of the rock, and the hint of a rimmed outline on top, puts another whatit? in the pokes bin. And there, above it, is the great find by Blue Shift, which hasn't caught the attention of the world as yet (and by world, I mean Mars) (I've used that line so much but it never gets old for me, so stop me before I use it again) (and by again, I mean Mars).

Here's an old one I haven't pulled out for awhile (or only once), entitled by myself as "Take me to your leader, bro":

I wonder why they didn't drill it , I cant find any other closer pictures of that region, what did team nasa determine it as I wonder?, given it warranted no further investigation from the other cameras , surely they didn't miss it

They may have missed it, although I don't know how many people NASA and JPL and whoever else is playng this game assign to scan the pictures and what their level of expertise is. Has anyone else on the internet found it, or just here on this thread (where it was found twice independently)?

Sometimes a cigar is just a symbol for a biological organ, and this thing may just be a cigar.

Thank whole are is full of interesting things! Maybe we have been finding to much so we have been cut off all the good pictures:-)

I wish i could see all the small images that come in...I know you can't really see but the upper left in this seems skull like
