Please explain what we are viewing in this Opportunity MER rover view of sol 3168.
This is a MI view, and the oddest aspect I see is the upper right corner, where a shadow from an elevated item which marks a equivalent pattern in the lower right margins to the underlying and clearly separate materials on the solid surface. Is this a solar product over time, a cratering by-product, or a mineral alteration over time in this or another medium or chemistry mix other than the thin and cold current scene?
I see items, several in number, which are inexplicable in content, without elaborate extension of climate, causation, and active chemistry, not seen in the immediate image.
Spheroid shells, brecciated layering, rounded item shapes, gridded recesses.
The shadow lacks detail, and should be an item of extreme interest, as the objects have been interactive.
What was the positioning and the causes?
All across Mars items appear in unusual shaping, former interactions, and now seem without current climate causation.
Can a cratering cause these current surface details and still be present hundreds of millions or even billions of years later?
Is this a showing of an active local environment, or even a solar cause at a fixed point of timing?
How much of Mars is the product of these actions which we have no explanation for?
Does the Curiosity image in your topic give us a similar alteration climate/environment of unexplained solar directional cause?
Episodic solar activity?
