    All I see are rocks and their shadows.

    (But I was never any good at pareidolia. Is it the face of Jesus? )

    Yep. (You can also click on the image to make it larger.)

    Maybe you need to clip the bit of the image you are talking about and post it.

    Do you mean the long thin rock at about 45 degrees (going downwards from left to right)? Where all we can see is the shadowed face of the rock.

    Not seeing the one that looks like a trilobite, but then again maybe I look at them too often at work and am too specific.

    The original link doesn't seem to work (as a link) so here it is again:

    When you say "centre of screen" do you mean just horizontally, or horizontally and vertically?

    I just think when you magnify it it has some strange contours for a rectangular rock
    The rest of the rocks look a bit different on the edges. I am not saying it is not a rock.
    I am stating it has somthing different to the rest of the rocks.

    And........

    What contours are not strange and what ones are for a rock? Especially one that is only partially exposed on the surface of a planet and subject to thousands of years of weathering

    I'm not even sure which object you are referring to. They all look like normal rocks, to me.

    If you can magnify it and put it on the forum I will point out what I see , uniformed patterns within the rock I am not saying it is anything more than a rock. But I cannot belive no one else can see them.

    I dont see anything out of the ordinary for the rock. Why do you feel they are unusual for a rock?
