Default Mars hollow rocks

Has anyone looked at the rock that is just below center in Opportunity's Sol 14
navigation camera? If you look in 3D you can see that it is mostly hollow with
a top and a bottom hollow. Also note the "rod" that is above and to the left
of it.

Hey Mad.

Are you talking about the "post-hole" stone with the rectangular hole,
with a few crystalized bits of wood inside? These pictures were no
doubt taken on the eastern coast of Australia's outback ("Marra Mara" -
not "Mars" at al).


Anyone interested, please come join us at:

If it looks like a geode it must be a geode.

Those images aren't high enough resolution to make such a determination.
Most likely what you are seeing is simply weathering in a soft area of the
rock outcrop.
