Very nice find.. Quite safe to say this is no natural formation, indeed.

Out of the context of knowing scale and the distortion effects of a fisheye lense....this seems interesting to me. Although I check other pictures and videos out and read the comments, I usually don't comment on things such as this. But, this is interesting from a unknowing point of view. It definitely his clear to a degree which seem par from the norm. Could be an odd shaped rock...who knows but definitely is interesting. When zoomed it...it reminds me of the so called photos of Noah's Ark. The rock or whatever on the left looks like some sorta concept car. :) The one on the right reminds me of a Hobbit dwelling. :)

Maybe someone with superb technical knowledge of photography scale and lense distortion can explain it away but it is more interesting than most these things I have seen with my lack of photography knowledge.

I assume that whitish stuff is a dust storm or cloud formation or something of the like?

Sorry guys, but the building is a part of the rover

Please don't confuse us with facts :D

Good catch...

I was just about to point out that the distortion caused by a fisheye lens would have made the "building"'s roof appear smaller than the base, which is the opposite of what we see in the photo. But now i guess the point is moot, ha ha.

Part of the rover as in how? Something that fell off of it or something reflected back into the image? Just curious. What shadow...the once cast by the rover directly on the ground or the one bouncing around in the top right corner?

One thing the shifting photo appear to do is to show the rover stuck in a rut. :D

Care to elaborate on the 'is part of the rover' conclusion??
I see no evidence of this. I see a large structure with straight lines with no obvious relation
to the earthly rover. Please be so kind as to base your statement with logic / facts, sir.

the rover image that you look out to, has like a lense cover which you are looking out from, the building is and upside down reflection from the rover you can see this by the shadow in the second clip moving top right of the screen? if that makes sense? you can see this clearly in the moving images.

I think Megadon's point in using the animation (and it took me a second to see it) is that you see the landscape moving in relation to the rover.

Which is an illusion in itself, because of course, the landscape isn't moving - the rover is - but we see it from the rover's fixed viewpoint, which includes the "building" as well.

Understand?

The "building" appears to be part of a translucent(?) lens cover maybe? Or as DJ said, a reflection of the rover onto a lens cover.

Either way whatever it is, it moves in sync with the rover...

If that is actually the case.. Then it should appear in all Rover pics. Or at least some anyway.. But it does not................ Not that I can find yet. I need to see a comparison to another pic that would show similar.

:cheers:




if you look at the horizon that the buildings are on you will see that this is the rim over a cover over the lense
