Notice there is a strange sort of distortion in the photo above the "branch", like a heat haze. I wonder whether that is evidence of Photoshopping.
You have a keen eye for such things and to me people that let this just pass without a moments thought really need to rethink what they are doing on here. From the time I joined this site a year ago until now I have enjoy all of your works and I hope you keep it up.

No kidding... good optical illusion... as there seems to be a shadow below and to the left of the "hoverer" right where a rock hovering in mid-air would have one... sheesh.
Nice find... I can't get my eyes to stop seeing it either, if that's any consolation.
Edit: Hours later and that STILL looks like a rock hovering ...or thrown?? WTH? Looking at the surroundings that rock is in front of the surrounding scenery and that splotch is its shadow and that means it's in mid air OR that's the best accidental optical illusion I've ever seen. Could the rover's movements kick a rock up? I would not think so. Meteor? Either way coolest thing I've seen on Mars pics in a long time, heh.edit on 12/3/2013 by Baddogma because: adding incredulous head shake
