DD 039 Title

As much as we’d love every anomaly to be as crystal-clear as the nose on your face, sometimes it takes a bit of study, a refocusing of not only the eyes but of the biases that inform what we see.  Images we call “blurry” can nonetheless reveal the tell-tale properties of being non-fractal, a product not formed by natural processes.

Other times we see images like “Curious Compound” in this edition that require us to ignore the surrounding geology, only to realize that structures and buildings are hiding in plain sight.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but often the intellectually-lazy will be the first to say “They’re rocks!”, today’s variation on the old “swamp grass/weather balloon” proclamations.  And who knows.  Maybe that’s all they are.  You be the judge.

Thanks for viewing!

Thank you to Todd who is one of our forum moderators at http://www.whatsupinthesky.com for sharing this one in the forum.  I am sure others have found this before although NASA sure did hide it well in the Black and White footage on their website.  Making it harder for the public to see things like that if it wasn't for people like Todd and oh so many more going through the 100 percent lossless files as well as the 8 bit versions of them that come directly from the rover.   It takes us six months to between PDS dumps which often have older images on them as well.   So let me know what you think below?  Artifact or Natural?  My mind isn't made up on this one yet!
