|After careful examination of photos from Mars rover Opportunity, a strange object begs further study. This object appears to have two large, tentacle-like protrusions casting a shadow onto the slope of the crater in which Opportunity sits. The object is clearly not part of the outcrop of bedrock (also shown in the photo) because the color of the object is strikingly different from the exposed rock. There are no footprints in the soil around it, but there are noticeably darker regions on either side suggesting that it came up from under the sand.
Some possibilities to ponder:
Examine the photo below and judge for yourself. Don't believe this is a real photo? Get the same image from NASA here.
