Given this:

and that NASA took the trouble of brushing it off:

and got that intense reflection, after which they also checked it out with the ChemCam:

myself, I'm into something like a gold fever...

Doesn't yield with pictures like:

and many more.

Of course, there's no word from NASA on the analysis, but what do you guys think:
Is there any known mineral, other than gold, that would give off a reflection like that after x million years of exposure to the Marsian C02 athmospere?

If there were truly gold on top of every other rock on Mars, a manned mission would be our nation's top priority as a permanent solution to fiscal cliffs and so forth.

I was curious why they are taking all these pictures of the same area with the Left Navcam. I found something really interesting. In every picture of this area when you look off in the distance of the left side and zoom in, you see what looks like the pixles ligning up.. Maybe some sort of tower?

Hey JCC. The image you posted isn't coming up. Sad I would like to see it. Smile

To everyone else - I made a Facebook page to attempt to make panoramas and mosaics available to more of the mainstream, since the regular joe doesn't know where to find them.

Here it is. Please "Like" and share if you can. And I'm not running the show on that page. I did create it, but I would like others to get in on it as well. - A group effort. The general public deserves to see up to date images and mosaics/panoramas.

I wrote a longish geology note on the 'blisters'. Why has it not appeared? I don't want to try and rewrite it unless it is lost.

Ok, followed the link from here and it said that Flickr does not allow imbedding frames. Does the pro version allow it?

I had a colleauge test this link, try it Laughing

JCC I see many other lined up pixel in the sky nearby though. That one you pointed out stands out cause it's near a triangular rock, thus giving an antenna impression.

Horton explained several times on those Flicker Quirks,,Maybe he will come to the rescue one more time?


To share a Flickr image:

click on the "share" pull-down just above the picture
select the "grab the html/bbc code" pull-down
select the HTML radio button
select a size ( I use mostly medium 500 )
copy the code
paste it in the comment

Flickr will not let you use a direct link to a picture.

sol 0147 Bayer RGB processed images:

Why do these rocks need the maximum resolution available? Why not just drive up to them and use the MAHLI???

I don't get it. Somebody 'splain please.

And here is a peculiar white pattern on nearby rocks:

With respect to Horton and impreprex beautiful sets of images and panoramas there is one thing which bother me. I've seen in many occasions features that really really reminds me of biologic fossils. Is there anyone here that share my thoughts? I'm not specific, but what do you think? The aeolian force and the ancient flows of water can't do all this?

Martian life is staring you right in the face. That's your microbial mat.

The triangular pinnaclely-looking guys in a symmetical saw tooth pattern coming from a straight stem-looking object. The "rover plastic" objects are also associated with this.

The broken rocks that are greenish-pink just below the surface of the rock we keep seeing after they are ran over? Cyanobacteria.

Notice the deafening silence from the chemcam guys.

And they also have an excellent tool, the MAHLI, which is not used then ...

We don't know they aren't using it. All we know is that MAHLI photographs are not being publicly released at the rate one would expect considering its superior imaging capabilities.

I am still waiting for the MAHLI night/dawn photographs of frost. I highly doubt they haven't taken one with it yet.

People are going to want too identify ''life''' with movement,,,water looks better flowing,,,unfortunately the drops hanging from the Pheonix substructure,,,were not enough.
Everybody's Right and Until we have better proof there is no discovered life on Mars,,That leaves the field open from ghosts to goblins I suppose,,or perhaps a bit of restraint be used and the Scientific Method allowed,,Put in the words of Kurt Vonnegut,,we could end up with a condition described as chrono-ssynclastic infundibulated.,Today being day five of the year 2013

Also it is kinda sorta hard to think of life when all you see is rocks,,,,,we need,,very badly to get below surface.Damm shame no auger.It would also be good to get above surface and explore the remnant of a Mars atmosphere.
Lets see,,,,,what gas floats a balloon in a vacuum?(google later)..
Thanks h> pictureposting stuff.
Hate to say I kinda miss ole serpens,,,the guy talked funny but you had to know he has a good heart.Maybee a bit over educated...but
hell,,,look at the dozen or so left,hello dana,dx,mpj,winston,,I don't see any Superstars in our group?
Does anyone else?
Horton perhaps,,,having probably one of the biggest flicker picture albums,,(guessing).
and all Mars.I love you Horton,,Man to Man,,,now about that collection,,,,,,,,,,,?&*&*?

All you new people are
welcome aboard indeed.
May 2013 be ALL our Year!!

Mars "flower"? Lots of other reports of this feature.

Why is that "flower" find more newsworthy than what Horton has just pointed to?

These are the people who were seeing Jesus in the window screen,,,sadly now we have the internet.
As usual outstanding Pictures Hort,,,,I liked the first,best,,,A very noticed difference
in the picture quality oppy-vs-curie,,,,

And here is a peculiar white pattern on nearby rocks:
Please,there can be no other answer than a reflection.?unless a transmission glitch?
We are in dire need of human presence on Mars.
Call your congressman today.
Find out who in your congress is friendly toward space exploration.Who knows,,,,there
may be more of them than you think.

On the other hand,,,,probably not.
No it doesn't resemble a flower at all.
