A view from the "Rocknest" science stop of MSL Curiosity to the west, spanning a north to south arc and time/lighting ranging from early afternoon to the evening. Shadows and contours in the right part of the pan (northern direction) are quite pronounced due to low sun angle. Most deep shadow-areas in the northern section of the pan have been reworked to show deteials if possible.

    aside from the obvious mess to the far left. there is something in this image and the raw image (SOL 67 ) that deserves a real answering for - we are not alone in the universe, and certainly have company on Mars! Thank you for this Gigapan Nev, it has broken the "anomalies" mold of pareidolia and misinterpratation wide open and hopefully will one day be not only evidence, but proof. It is to me. I cropped it and then found the unique SOL it appears in and did it again and am sharing it wherever and whenever I can - Now, my challenge is to find it again, if it exists it will appear in other SOLs, and when I find it,, I will share it.

    Hey Halley Valley, where is the image you mention with the language, MU?

    Yeah, its not a disc half burried to ground and yeah those are not lasso and rectangle selection marks in the blur effect also the rover arm cast shadows meters away on the ground, these things does happen in mars its normal. What not normal is the thing you are trying to do. Is it a disc shaped unmanned spacecraft with a crescent opening on the edge and Turkish letters on it? no, it is the half of it. The real question is do you really believe that you can turn this circus that you acted for 50 years back around? You can not do it by not deleting but blurring the artificial artifacts from moon, mars, saturn, titan, venus etc. even from the asteroids. IT IS OVER accept it and shut up like the way you shut down the shuttle program. By the way, on one of the rocks in the panaromas you published, there is a symbol from MU, its the symbolic language once all world spoke and it reads Mehen(Human). You know which language it is. Delete that before anybody sees.

    Where can we see raw the raw images that are not blurred out?

    Bruncie - that is an overstitch from the rover arm. The raw images show this. Do you seriously think it's a space ship, or are you just joking?

    Why is that object on the far left photoshopped out?

    Do not let people tell lies any longer. That is a real spacecraft!

    That is a true spacecraft flying over Mars!

    Somehow these extreme foreground rover parts (out of focus due to close range to the lens)found its way into the panorama. As images of the panorama are from different Sols this is kind of the same method which made the complete rover self-potraits possible - in this case not for benefit though.
