Observing the sky with the green filter of it panoramic camera, the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit came across a surprise: a streak across the sky. The streak, seen in the middle of this mosaic of images taken by the navigation and panoramic cameras, was probably the brightest object in the sky at the time. Scientists theorize that the mystery line could be either a meteorite or one of seven out-of-commission spacecraft still orbiting Mars. Because the object appeared to move 4 degrees of an arc in 15 seconds it is probably not the Russian probes Mars 2, Mars 3, Mars 5, or Phobos 2; or the American probes Mariner 9 or Viking 1. That leaves Viking 2, which has a polar orbit that would fit with the north-south orientation of the streak. In addition, only Viking 1 and 2 were left in orbits that could produce motion as fast as that seen by Spirit. Said Mark Lemmon, a rover team member from Texas A&M University, Texas, "Is this the first image of a meteor on Mars, or an image of a spacecraft sent from another world during the dawn of our robotic space exploration program? We may never know, but we are still looking for clues."

The inset shows only the panoramic image of the streak.

Its a flying rod, they have been spotted all over earth and in space studying our technology as well as us. They must be wondering what the hell we are doing on mars. There is no way that is a sattelite like they say, it is a flying rod investigate it for yourself you'll see.

I hope aliens invade. They might be able to teach us a thing or two about more advanced technology. Maybe share a secret or two. Or maybe they can destroy each other? Become friends with one brain wash 'em turn 'em against their fellow aliens and BOOM you got aliens killing aliens...most likely humans killing humans...but what the hell if the zombies come along me and Steve-w will kill the zombies as a team...defeat the world and all will be peaceful...or maybe you can lock me up in a jacket that ties in the back and throw me in a padded room? Sounds good to me Very Happy

A spacecraft in orbit wouldnt leave a "trail" now would it. A meteor would have left a much longer streak and would only be visible for a second at max. So what does that leave?

You guys remember that Russian Mars probe back in '89 ? Remember that thing it encountered seconds before it short circuited back in '89 ? There's a picture of it somewhere on the web. Anyway, it was a 50 mile rod similar to that thing in the Spirit photo...
I think it's an artificial satellite that's been up there for millions of years, orbiting
Mars.

Ok guy's firstly it makes me laugh how scientists say there was a big bang firstly how the hell can they prove it? and if so where did space come from or should i say what was space before space? see its to big to even comprehend.Its some thing humans will never ever find an answer for.We will never understand life death and our universe because we are no ment to.There was no beggining there will be no end to our universe.It's all apart of the show. i believe we are a shell and inside our bodys we are a solar energy-soal if you like.And i believe when we die we travel across our universe blink of an eye speed because we can we are energy at death not flesh.And i believe we get a tour of what life is all about and our universe.So we shall see one day.

What is the time exposure of this image? How long did it take for this object to go start point to finish point? Can anyone speculate on how high the object is?

What is it?

Unfortunately the image referred to by WolfKiller (2N134687551ESF2700P1962L0M1.JPG - the single navigation camera image from Spirit for Sol 94) has no "right" counterpart. 2N134687551ESF2700P1962R0M1.JPG is missing or at least not available on web. Without the second image it's hard to say anything about distance or whether it is just "dust on the lens" (a small Martian mosquito? - Sorry for the joke!) or "something on the film",i.e., some damage of the camera CCD matrix. Lensman - it may happen even to a high-res digicam! In, fact, there are two unusual objects in this image (http://www.rense.com/general51/curious.htm). The minor one (just at the upper edge of the image, 7% of width from the right side) seems to be just a camera defect: (1)it is visible in all left navicam images at the same location in frame from the very beginning already and (2)it is missing in right images. As to the bigger object ...
