THE MISSING MENAGERIE...

Might have posted about this some time ago...

To my mind one of the most convincing demonstrations of life on Mars.

Two pics of the same location, 15 sols apart. 

In the later pic there appears to be something that looks like a dead creature on its back, a nearby mouse like "rodent" and possibly another creature moving towards the dead animal.

I would like to agree with you, but upon closer inspection it is the rover being ref, back to us, with one of its wheels on the right, so it changes since the rover changes position, sorry.

PS my previous image with the flowering plants may, well it probably is the rover being ref, back to us also, (the one with the circles) have to be really careful.

I have seen sand reflect the landscape back to us, so yes it can.

Re: The Real Mars

In that detail at that distance for a rover? No.

Re: The Real Mars

There appears to be some Egyptian Hieroglyphs, here, but l can't make out much, flying machine depiction?

Either way too many shapes, that are separated by equal distances to dismiss as an anomaly.

Re: The Real Mars

Interesting video from Art Alien TV:

The rock does look very barnacled.

Re: The Real Mars

Still at the 3D images with some more of the native plant life. or as you will see fluffy prickles.

Bottom image shows the one l am scouring, and l have marked the general location, using the rover as a reference point.

Ok, first, shows the rover and one of its legs, (left) but also shows these green things littering the landscape.

Next same thing, green, tall things.

aowS6D4.jpg

Next we finally get a good look at them, and this is why we get the Truman show type sky, since showing furry, martian prickles might upset some, (the mars is a dead, rock, NASA loves me crowd).

The fur is to protect them from the cold, (as it does on Earth) and not the minus 200 crap, more like minus 2 at night.

And to top if off l found this, plants or tall prickles on the right, and l would like to say rain clouds up top, but they are reflecting the landscape so they are the rovers robotic arms, sniff.

But yep, orange clouds, and a landscape dominated by tall prickles, and prickles eventhough drought resistant still needs liquid water, and with a lanscape full of these things, rain, (groundwater springs at that scale is unlikely).

Re: The Real Mars

Went to a big nursery today, (Mothers Day) and spotted these things in the desert, prickle area.

1s3H7Jy.jpg

So these are tall and have a large amount of green up top, or flowers getting ready to open, which is very close to the ones above.

The top one has white furr, and enenthough NASA has probably blurred some of them in the second last image, in the previous post, (not this one) this don't fit with it being rover related, but strongly relates to martian, tall prickles.

We know Mars has rain, and air pressures similar to our own, (pure water droplets on the rover) and plant life, (green in Google/Mars and orbital images) or it does not go down to minus 200, (-200 is arctic blizzard conditions, or devoid of desert plant life) so there should be of no surprize that the rover is driving past tall prickles and photoshopping them out, to avoid spooking the herd, apart from what we see in the rocks.

cool

Re: The Real Mars

Ok, back to the last images from Sol 595. And the first l know that l have mentioned rectangular rocks that look like mirrors held up, here is the back of one, and yep, it does look like a stand, which means the locals and NASA have already mapped out the general path the rover will take.

jSQ8j1N.jpg

UfgRhnX.jpg

This is a good example of ref, sand. The rover is probably the left hand arrow, and this artificial thing on the right. Letterbox, abandoned machine? But whatever it is, it is not the rock, (found it again in another ref, rock).

hFA4CEJ.jpg

Rover is in the middle, this thing on the right, and some plants on the left, (CP shows mainly green).

cool

Re: The Real Mars

Had another look at the 3D ones, and found something pretty cool.

First possible sculpture on this rock, that looks like a house in the shape of a fish. The head on the left and fins, door on the right.

Next one is showing a pink house on the hill, (sun is still setting) surrounded by tall prickles, which are close to the ones, l saw before at the nursery.

fEN2gXL.jpg

The last one that may be drawn into the rock, but l like to think that this is a structure, with a rickety ladder in the middle, and something up top.

Considering the fan blades up top, this may be some ancient wind device, possibly to bring water up to the top or to generate electricity.

Australia has something similar to bring up boar water in desert areas for cattle.

cool

Re: The Real Mars

The usual today, sunsets and plants.

rXOZnvP.jpg

On the right a distant hill, or possibly pyramid, sun setting and some green here and there; CP shows plenty of green, so plant life, maybe prickles but definitely shrubs.

The left one is more interesting or there appears to be something on the left, that l ititially thought was the rover, but the CP shows strong green up the top, so the prickles l previously showed, (that do have big leaves) or spindely tree's.

gxIeVkB.jpg

This one shows the previous and also something new, l thought that this might be a raincloud or the rover, but strong green is showing, (CP) so a windblown prickle is my guess.

cool Sol 597
