The spot is in the same spot so was it even moving.

Sorry, I don't understand what you mean by that.



As far as other rocks not moving, most seem to be part of the bedrock, all the little bumpies but they would know if there had been some heavy wind.

To me they look like independent sedimentary rocks stuck on the surrounding dust, and there are many small rocks that are not attached to anything.

That's pretty awesome. I wonder what it is.
Whats the odds of a meteor event occur and having fragments land in the exact path of the camera.

There's a few minor differences.


Why didn't we put a microphone or video camera on the unit?

Is there any reason to think it was not the result of wind, gravity or some natural, explainable cause? Perhaps even the Rover itself knocked it loose, picked it up in a track and it fell off?


No no reason all of those are possibilities people have been contemplating, except the pros have ruled out a couple of these things i believe.

thank you very much for your re explanation you're welcome in the ball of gaffer-taped fun anytime


an yes it was me that did the superimposed images, there is some movement unfortunately , the perspectives are slightly out due to differences in the cameras angle on the images, I tried to get them to fit , even resorted to warping as you can see from the unusual outline surrounding the blow ups , so with this in mind there maybe slight destortions [snip]

Could be, but can we be sure?

I meant there is a shape already in the rock before the interesting object appears, to me the shape is very much the same as the object which appears on top of it.

Imagine a life form in a small rock cavity flip itself over.

Er, they did:



And they still are. Please read the whole thread for sources and pics.

And to me it looks a lot different than its surroundings. Just sayin.

Look at the symmetry of that object! It really does look like a sea shell.

That's just one tiny "corner" area of the rock. Wow! pictures yet to come (if there are any).

Pro's?


 




looking at that I'd say the most likely answer is that one of the tracks on the wheel picked up that rock and that it simply fell off between the first an second images.

Whether it could be a fossil is speculation unless it's retrieved and examined, so no way to answer something like that honestly.

Isn't this why were there? Examine it. Keep watching......

I would think there ate camera shots of the wheels, the thing moves pretty slow and the main thing is the picture before is nearly in the same spot as far as camera angle so was the rover moving during the time between not there and there? If it moved shouldn't the pictures of the are be very different?

Well at least now i know where they go the donut idea. From that first position it looks like a donut or more like a ring. I wish we could see the bright red color they said was on the inside.

The bottom photo you can now see more clearly the little horn like projections.

Someone obviously walked onto the set in the Mohave desert and placed the shell there so that they can slightly increase the glacial pace of admitting there is life 'out there' in the universe to the masses.

I wonder why they haven't just admitted this is real and get on with it?

BUT SRSLY: I'm sure it was flipped by the wheel. It's probably volcanic in origin if it has sulfur, though it would be worth investigating if the sulfur is reduced and checking for carbon content to see if there may be any leftover traces of a microbial presence.

Hasn't the rover been turning over rocks of sizes like that already though? If so, I don't recall seeing such surfaces before on any of them.
