Now this probably deserves it's own thread. I believe Arken posted something similar to this story earlier this week, in fact. While at the time
everyone said it was difference in the angle of light and such, the photos in your link appear like the real deal. I wonder if Mars has tremors or
earthquakes that could account for moving rocks....?
Back on topic...
If you look at some of the other rocks within the photo, you will notice that not all of them have sharp edges - some of them have rounded areas from
erosion. I think that's what the "tail" is in these photos as well. Mostly jagged-edged rocks with some rounded weathering and that is what makes
these rocks appear to be just jagged rocks with something smoother-looking sitting on top of them. In reality, the rocks we are looking at are jagged
in some places and smooth from wind erosion in others, creating strange shapes on them. Nice find though! Even though the answer is always "It's
just a rock!", I enjoy seeing the photos from the surface of Mars
