Haha, the comments are pretty entertaining! Here I was thinking this is going to be another the 'Face on Mars' debate again. Good stuff. Personally, just looks like a a near perfect rectangular shadow. Next, we'll have photos from the International Space Station showing Earth with a huge perfect circle over a few states wide and people will think it's a Mothership hovering in front of the sun when it actually was a solar eclipse.

Here's a curious plant-like item I found sticking out of an apparent triangular shaped hole. I've shown it in two wavelengths for comparison, and closeup. This is one of the strangest items I have found. It led me to believe that the [spherules] found, mostly by Opportunity, might have a life basis of some kind. It's just speculation. However, I have a gut feeling that this thing is or was living, whatever "it" is. Note the curious spherule arrangement adjacent. There are more of these objects, but they're rare in these photos. NASA didn't screen out or blur everything, but I do have clear exa...

Well, scare-crow, that looks like some of that fine marsotee cactus that the space brothers traded me a WII for. Good stuff!
