It looks to me like a spring or screw that may have come off the rover. However, as of now it's anyone's guess. (An armored worm? :roll:)
I have sent an inquiry to NASA/JPL and hope to hear back soon. But still, I'm not holding my breath waiting
for a reply. If they do, I'll let you know.

It really looks a lot like a spring or a screw. Any idea about the scale of the object?

About the NASA replys. It usually takes few weeks if they bother to answer.

I've been racking my brains to remember where I've seen that shape before. What about this? It's called a worm gear and would be used as part of the mechanism that moved and controlled the arm on the rover. But they should know that they have a problem moving some part of the arm when they ask for a specific movement. Which they may not have done as yet?

If you zoom right in on the second picture and look at the end of the arm just before it meets the bundle of instruments you will notice a small white spot appear for two frames. This spot can only be caused by a reflection from behind the arm? The sun looks to be in the top middle left of the of the screen judging by the shadows on the ground. But the white round spot on the rear of that arm brings into question the reality of what looks like a moving object on the ground? Could it be a reflection on the inside of the lens? There are plenty of possible light sauces that could be the candidate?

I was taught by the best of them to question everything.....Thanks for the lessons Will. :flop:

It just might be a spot reflection of the sun from some highly reflecting part of the rover focusing the light on a small area. It would be good the know how high the sun was above the horizon at the time. What was the ambient light amount at the time? Has this been seen in any other images before? Telemetry data?

I'm guessing it is a few feet in front of the rover, but really have no way to tell for sure.
The fact that the anomaly is seen from two camera lenses leads me to believe it's not a reflection, but
I wouldn't rule that explanation out either. One thing I do know, I've looked at hundreds of Hazcam images and have never had an anomaly show up on both the right and left...much less move.

I've been staring at those gifs 'til my eyes hurt, and I agree, it can't be really minuscule & really close like a dust particle because it wouldn't be on both cams, & not far away (or rather where it appears to be) or they would both show the same locations (I'm assuming they are the same times ) so a few to several feet is likely....so what is it ?

A flying insect ?

Speaking of which...who pinned that idiot post? :hell:

Let's just say it wasn't one of us mods :peep:


As far as I know none of the mods has pinned a topic except me, (even then maybe 3 so far ? ), I pick threads created for "original content" (where a member has put real time & effort into making a vid for example) that has plummeted down the active topic list, not much point pinning anything already at the top lol.
