On its 173rd day on Mars, Curiosity stumbled upon a metallic-looking, shiny protuberance on a rock. The protuberance seems different than the rock on which it sits and looks pretty smooth. It is, however, quite small — probably not taller than 0.5 cm.
The unidentified object that Curiosity spotted a couple of days ago has now been identified — it’s a benign piece of plastic, that probably got loose during the descent stage. Humans and their littering ways...
This image was taken by Curiosity on Sol 61 (October 7, 2012). After examining the image, the rover team decided to refrain from using its arm on Sol 62. Instead, the rover was instructed to take additional photos of the bright object to aid the team in assessing possible impact, if any, to sampling activities.
A reader alerted UFOEyes to the fact that on Sol 50 (Curiosity's 50th day on Mars), a mysterious shadow appeared on one of the images sent back to Earth by the rover. At first glance, it sure looks like Curiosity is being cleaned and/or repaired by a backpack wearing humanoid clad in protective goggles.
On August 6, 2012, Mars rover Curiosity reached Mars and started its descent through the red planet’s atmosphere. Now, post production specialist and philosopher Bard Canning has put together a truly amazing video of Curiosity’s descent into the unknown. This is simply awesome folks.
A reader sent UFOEyes a link to a recent photo taken by Curiosity on its 34th day on Mars (thanks!). In it, we see a dark object seemingly hovering over the Martian landscape. While interesting (after all, the image has travelled many millions of kilometers), I'm pretty sure we're looking at nothing more that a speck of dust on the camera lens.
