It looks like a crawling skull on the surface of Mars. It probably isn't that - more likely a trick of the light - but it's intriguing nevertheless.
I would have said spider skull but it only has 3 legs visible and no pedipalps that I can see.
See Curiosity Sol545 - Rear Left Hazcam
about a third down from top and one fifth in from the left.
There's another pic of this object taken from a different angle and if you want to superimpose the two images in Photoshop to see if it has moved, go
for it. I did so but the angles are too different. Having said that, the surrounds seem a little different and the object is noticeably the same
shape. Legs seem to be in same position.
I'm surprised other conspiracy theorists don't do the onion skin trick more often. It's an old animation trick. Superimpose both layers, line rocks
up. It's how Pluto was found.
The object may have moved, but more likely it's another strange shaped rock. One of the better strange shaped rocks to my mind or (more excitingly -
although don't wait up) a possible alien a la John Carpenter's "The Thing".
I can only imagine the guys driving this remote control military vehicle are subject to committee decision-making processes, so I doubt we will see
this image in any decent resolution, but you never know your luck on Sol 545.
There's actually another image of a miniature cave earlier on Sol 545 from which the insectoid may have walked. It would account for the strange
scoop tracks we've seen on Mars lately.
