NASA Mars Rover Opportunity Reveals Geological Mystery: Spherical Objects Unlike Previously Found ‘Blueberries’

ScienceDaily (Sep. 14, 2012) — NASA’s long-lived rover Opportunity has returned an image of the Martian surface that is puzzling researchers.

Spherical objects concentrated at an outcrop Opportunity reached last week differ in several ways from iron-rich spherules nicknamed “blueberries” the rover found at its landing site in early 2004 and at many other locations to date.

Opportunity is investigating an outcrop called Kirkwood in the Cape York segment of the western rim of Endeavour Crater. The spheres measure as much as one-eighth of an inch (3 millimeters) in diameter. The analysis is still preliminary, but it indicates that these spheres do not have the high iron content of Martian blueberries.

“This is one of the most extraordinary pictures from the whole mission,” said Opportunity’s principal investigator, Steve Squyres of Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y. “Kirkwood is chock full of a dense accumulation of these small spherical objects. Of course, we immediately thought of the blueberries, but this is something different. We never have seen such a dense accumulation of spherules in a rock outcrop on Mars.”

NASA`s  explanation



new footage extracted from SDO archives from march 10 11 and 12 .

March 10:

March 11:

March 12:



Apparently the NASA footage no longer displays march 11 and 12 so there is nothing to see there anymore. Check it out 

And the news hit daily mail


MARCH 13 UPDATE: It appears that “the object” was stationed there for many days  and after a quick google search i came up with this picture of the sun from march 10, 2012:



Straight from NASA.

Enormous Spherical Mass Seen in Shanghai & Beijing Skies

Thursday, 25 August 2011 07:50

‘And now the Truth has arrived in Shanghai and Beijing! Following news last week of a UFO being the reason why Chongqing’s airport had to divert flights, an unexplained mass event occurred at approximately 9pm on Saturday night in Shanghai. A ‘huge white ball’ flying 10.7km (35,100 feet) high in the air was reported to the East China Air Traffic Control Bureau by civil aviation pilots, and apparently grew ‘bigger and bigger’ as time passed.’
