Also interesting are all the flat circles scored with symmetrical rays coming from smaller offset circles. Anybody want to guess?
No guesses needed.  The panorama photo is taken from Opportunity's landing site.  The "flat circles with symmetrical rays" are marks left by the airbags that were used to cushion Opportunity's landing while it crash landed and bounced forward until it came to a rest before deploying the rover.

As I've already noted and which is explained by NASA on their website that the image is taken from.

Why there are traces in the soil representing a sun ? Aliens sending us a message ?
Or they are obviously marks left by the airbags that the landers deployed before they hit the surface and rolled to a halt before deflating and letting the rovers deploy.

As I already noted and which is explained in the NASA link I provided above in this thread.

How about people read the freaking thread and the links and explanations provided within before blurting out an ill-informed opinion?

Whatever... Posting an explanation and pointing out that it has already been explained in a thread is not taking things personally, it's merely pointing out the typical laziness of forums users who launch into posts without reading the thread they' re replying to.

Did i say something that made no sense or is factually wrong?  If so, tell me what's wrong and I'll either try to explain myself or admit my error.  Otherwise, please let's not resort to this kind of petty nonsense.

What is your point, if any?

I've repeatedly explained the silly "traces in the soil representing a sun" idea as being marks left by the lander's airbags.

Just what are you (or anyone else) arguing for or against at this point in the thread?

That the object in the OP is of extraterrestrial origin?  That the "traces in the soil representing a sun" marks are of extraterrestrial origin?  I can't even disagree with you as I don't know what you're saying.  You seem to be arguing for the sake of arguing and I can't make out what, if any, argument you're trying to make.

Sigh...

This isn't Curiosity's landing site, it's Opportunity's landing site.

There was no sky crane for the Spirit and Opportunity landers.  They used a cruder method more suitable for smaller lighter landers and rovers.  They used a parachute to slow their descent and then inflated airbags to cushion their landing. They crashed into the surface of Mars and bounced along the surface until they came to a halt, then deflated the airbags before deploying the rovers.

The surface marks we're seeing are marks made by the airbags rolling the rover into its final resting place that it started its mission from.
Sorry, my bad.

It looks like all the mars missions failed to discover past or perhaps present life just because those looking for it don't even believe in it firstly ... Without faith is all a big waste of money.

And it seems you are examining the same images like everyone else but pulling some conclusions that must be necessarily accepted by everyone as entirely true and nothing else but the truth. Is your computer magical, do you know details we can't see?

Same as you're claiming to be signs from landing I am saying they are aliens. Big tall grey aliens. They draw a sun there to let us know this fact. You can't never prove me otherwise as I don't as well...

Wait , what?

You are saying that those land traces representing a perfect circle and it's line coincidentally looking like a sun have been created when the airbag snapped revealing the lander? Where is the airbag then?
In fact you can clearly see the airbags if you scroll about 120 degrees to the right.

have Nasa identified the pieces from the rover including the one was posted by OP? if this is truly where is originating? Nobody worried about it?

It's a rock for crying out loud!  What makes it look weird is that the majority of the light colored rock is covered with same dark dust (carefully examine to the right side of the "snail" and you'll see what I mean) as the plain it rests upon.

Not part of an ancient alien skeleton?  What makes you think it's not?

I find the irony hilarious - this came from someone who didn't bother checking even the most basic facts before posting these calm, well-considered words:

No drama there at all.  If that was me, I'd be meekly apologising for wasting the forum's time - rather than trying to deflect responsibility by criticising others...

Could you please identify the "perfect circles" you are referring to?  What is it that "looks like a sun"?

And no, I'm not making any claims about perfect circles.   I didn't mention perfect circles, you're the only person talking about perfect circles, which you have yet to identify or justify.

What are you talking about?
