Here's a funny, kooky 'extra, extra' to APoD members. The Yahoo! article also has a very nice photo of an Identified Rolling Object:

Another UFO Captured on Mars Rover Camera
by Jim Kane

Is Mars really teeming with alien spacecraft? Well, yet another Mars rover photo is generating interest on the Internet, because it shows what appears to be a UFO hovering in the background.

What is your opinion? Are Martians watching the NASA craft, as it monitors them? There definitely is a strange object visible in the latest picture, but who knows what it is. Perhaps it is merely a blind spot on the camera lens.

Click view for a video expanding the latest Curiosity photo. The 30-second footage provides a great closeup of the anomalous sight hovering over the Gale Crater landscape. Watch the footage, and decide for yourself whether this UFO proves the existence of life elsewhere in the solar system.

Since the Curiosity rover landed on the Red Planet, there have been several photos raising the specter of UFOs. NASA, however, doesn’t really do a very good job of explaining what these pictures show, so people’s imaginations run wild. Maybe, even the scientists are baffled by the anomalies.

I watched the video. It didn’t seem to be moving. Maybe it was dirt on the camera lens.

Thanks SunkenCiv. Curiosity finds a curiosity?

Could it be a marsquito carrying the MARS virus? Also the first photo looks like a large helicopter. Are they on the planet Mars or are they out in the desert? ;O)

I’ve seen spiders hang motionless off webs like that. Or maybe it’s my visual floaters.

The delivery truck for a new plastic genechtagazoink to replace the syrup encrusted one? Just a guess. Really it’s the Illinois Toll Road cops. NASA didn’t pay at the gate.

It’s a K’Cherr class Klingon scout ship. Crew of Eight. Probably in a bad mood too.

It’s obviously a speck of dirt on the lens. You can see it in the same spot on most of the pictures, whether they are sky shots or shots of the ground.
Or, maybe I am missing something.

That was my first reaction, but the diehard UFO squad will never allow it.

I consider all UFO sitings to be anecdotal reports of
seeing something in the sky that the observer can not identify...No big deal.
As for ET, I will believe in them only when they make contact with us humans.
My own opinion is that any ET that exist is way too far from
our solar system to ever get here.

I think we've finally figured out where Emilia Earhart ended up.

Seriously tho, given the amount of debris kicked up by the landing rockets, looks like dirt to me.

It has been a long time but I have done astrophotography where you would get off axis camera effects from time to time and I also was a contamination control engineer for the Hubble Space Telescope and having looked at particles at various magnifications I too think it is dirt on the lens, *sarc* not that Mars has much dust or dirt and that.*/sarc*

It’s a piece of dirt on the lens. If you go to the Yahoo Photos gallery, it persists in the same spot in photos 4-6 despite those photos taken of entirely different subjects.

It could be some of the space debris that continually drops down onto the Martian surface, or a captured temporary “moon” of Mars in its death spiral. Or (as others pointed out) some schmutz on the lens. Thanks all! G’night, I just dozed at the kbd again.

Then why does it have a “I DON”T break for Romulans” bumper sticker?

... it would have to be underneath Curiosity for this one.

And how about that penny! Check out the penny. You can see the dust that settled on Curiosity from the landing. In fact, in that reprocessed panorama shot I thought I could see a large cloud of sorts that was still persisting.

You are right. It is in the closeup of the penny and the picture before it, of the undercarriage. You can put your finger just above it on your monitor and move back and forth between the three pictures and it is so stable at first I thought it was a piece of junk on my screen, but it’s not.
