    On looking at the picture there is a solid horizon line segment that looks like an image artifact.

    Not sure what is happening there but the fame rate (assuming they were in video mode) is 10 FPS black and white and 4 FPS color.

    I tried Google's reverse image search and they were all C2C. On that site is the link to NASA.

    HiRISE Spots Curiosity Rover at Mars' 'Woodland Bay'

    [​IMG]

    A dramatic Martian landscape can be seen in a new image taken from space, showing NASA's Curiosity rover examining a location called "Woodland Bay." It's just one of many stops the rover has made in an area referred to as the "clay-bearing unit" on the side of Mount Sharp, a 3-mile-tall (5-kilometer-tall) mountain inside of Gale Crater.

    The image was taken on May 31, 2019, by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera aboard NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO). In the image, Curiosity appears as a bluish speck. Vera Rubin Ridge cuts across the scene north of the rover, while a dark patch of sand lies to the northeast.

    Look carefully at the inset image, and you can make out what it is likely Curiosity's "head," technically known as the remote sensing mast. A bright spot appears in the upper-left corner of the rover. At the time this image was acquired, the rover was facing 65 degrees counterclockwise from north, which would put the mast in about the right location to produce this bright spot.

    Mirror-like reflections off smooth surfaces show up as especially bright spots in HiRISE images. For the camera to see these reflections on the rover, the Sun and MRO need to be in just the right locations. This enhanced-color image of Curiosity shows three or four distinct bright spots that are likely such reflections.

    The University of Arizona in Tucson operates HiRISE, which was built by Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. in Boulder, Colorado. JPL, a division of Caltech in Pasadena, California, manages the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter Project for NASA's Science Mission Directorate in Washington.

    I wonder what this is all about, likely a natural phenomenon?...

    Mysterious Mars nighttime pulses baffle scientists as red planet's magnetic field emits never-before seen events

    Never-seen-before bursts of magnetic energy on Mars have puzzled astronomers, whose space rover has gained fresh insights into the mysterious Red Planet.

    The magnetometer fixed to the cutting-edge NASA InSight spacecraft detected a bizarre jump in pulsations on the surface of the planet at nighttime.

    Since November 2018, the InSight capsule has been harvesting information from the Red Planet - including recording the ferocity of so-called 'Marsquakes' and taking the temperature of its upper crust.

    Scientists have not yet determined the causes behind the sudden magnetic pulses, which were 20 times stronger than previous observations, according to National Geographic.

    However the baffling aspect of these most recent findings was the clockwork-like frequency of the midnight pulses.

    The InSight lander is currently placed on Mars's equator. On Earth's equator, no such pulses are ever recorded.

    Meet the women and men going to Mars! Thirteen new astronauts join NASA under the Artemis program that aims to put humans on the Red Planet by the mid-2030s


    [​IMG]

    It's been more than two years in the making, but 13 astronauts have finally joined NASA under the mission that will bring the first female to the moon and some may be the first humans to step on Mars. The group includes six women and seven men, all of which were chosen from record-setting pool of more than 18,000 applicants. The 13 astronauts, 11 from NASA and 2 from CSA, are the first candidates to graduate under the Artemis program and will become eligible for spaceflight, including assignments to the International Space Station, Artemis missions to the Moon, and ultimately, missions to Mars.

    It looks like a fossilized rabbit/iguana. :eek:
