Job Opening Arizona Desert....

We need a rock prop specialist. Detail orientated a must.

Must be willing to lie with a straight face. Call Rocky at NASA.

Just waiting for the above add to appear in the paper.

I don't know how far of a hop these two are from each other, but the shapes seem right.

interesting,seems like the original place for pinnacle island. Maybe the snapping ruler explanation is the correct one. Does not bode well for the life explanation. Doh
Can not see any blueberries on sticks though?

Is the rover really on mars or earth? something seems fishy.

The Opportunity rover was reported by Dr. Steve Squyers of NASA to have never been nearer the mysteriously appearing object than 1 to 2 meters. The object would have had to have been flipped or skidded at least that far. Given the apparently rough texture of the object and of the Martian surface, friction would seemingly prevent such a lengthy transport.

Everything points to it being on Mars: the ground looks different from everything I have seen on Earth, the Sun looks different, the clouds are different.

Friction is irrelevant if it was flipped and jumped from one place to another.

In the 'tiddlywinks' scenario, the object was supposed to be lodged between the rover wheel, and the surface of Mars. It was then squeezed out under pressure, and flew through the air to its destination.
If the friction between the rock and the surface of Mars, and between the rock and the rover wheel was sufficient, the rock either wouldn't have flown at all, or would have traveled only a very short distance. The surfaces would resist movement, relative to each other.
The analogy of tiddlywinks is misleading, as these are very smooth and slippery objects. The mysteriously appearing object on Mars, and Mars surface are patently rough.

Here are more moving rocks I found today....

Thinking that this discovery by BuzzDengue linked below (and the pics and gifs by funbox in subsequent posts, it goes on to the next page) needs more ATS eyes and expertise. This may be the "big one" in terms of fossils on Mars (or may be a rock, but that's why it needs more people looking at it). Start with Buzz's original post, which was way too small of a graphic, and go on from there to funbox's pics, my enthusiasm ("This is on Mars!!!???") and some analysis. It needs geologists eyes on it, and anyone who wants to see something reallllllyyyy interesting:

the clouds are different.

Still believing the claims mars has red skies? you in Photoshop i can easily edit a location and turn into an Mars setting with ease.

I have seen that happen with rocks on a an asphalt road, being projected by the weight of a car passing over them.

I suppose the rock, the asphalt and the rubber tires that were part of the events I have witnessed were not that smooth or slippery.

Mars has red skies in the same way Earth has red skies, but I was not talking about that, I said "the clouds are different".

I have posted many photos from Mars that have a blue, white, orange or red sky.

If I understand what that sentence means, I doubt it. I have seen other people trying it and they failed, the rocks in the Mars photos have a characteristic erosion that I have never seen on any place on Earth, although some places in Antarctica have a similar look, but the type of rock is different and the way the rocks are broken is also different.

If I'm not mistaken, based on the pics from 3544 and 3552 it seems like NASA figured out exactly where the rock was sitting prior to being dislodged and hasn't said a word about it since the original story. I could be mistaken, though. Maybe they are waiting for the press conference.

oh may be they dug that hole so they can keep hiding the truth. We will see how many detailed pictures of this anomoly and surrounding areas are released. To me that hole looks like the triangle rock that was south east of the anomly in the original image.

The rover doesn't have tools to dig a hole like that.

obviously they can dislodge a rock lol. We will see in future images, but if they did know all along ,well thanks a lot!

I suppose the rock, the asphalt and the rubber tires that were part of the events I have witnessed were not that smooth or slippery.
This happens with bicycle tires, too, as I know from personal experience. Most of the force is from the rock compressing a spot in the tire, which propels the rock when it snaps back into shape. One can even hear the odd 'thrump' sound, when this happens, as the tire suddenly rebounds. Opportunity doesn't have pneumatic tires, though.
If NASA can show this happening with the relatively hard wheels of the duplicate rover back on Earth, then I'll give this explanation more serious consideration. As it stands, it doesn't look as if the force involved could sufficiently overcome the friction between a rough stone and the rough surface of Mars, and between the stone and the wheel.

so we're inbetween a rock and a hard place?
