Mysterious Mars Curiosity Photo SOLVED!

NASA's Mars rover Curiosity beamed back this mysterious photo earlier this week, that got scientists and space enthusiasts buzzing with delight. It seems that they've got themselves a mystery.

Seconds after the NASA robot's landing Sunday night, Curiosity managed to squeeze off a handful of fuzzy, black-and-white photographs. One, taken with a device on its rear known as a Hazcam, captured the pebble-strewn ground beneath the rover and one of its wheels — and a blotch, faint but distinctive, on the horizon.

The images were relayed by a passing satellite. Two hours later, the satellite passed overhead again. This time, Curiosity sent home a new batch of higher-resolution photos. They showed the same horizon.

The blotch was gone.

What could it be? NASA scientists are suggesting that the mysterious plume could be a serendipitous photo of the crash-landed sky crane.

But we know better. Thanks to CSI-style "Enhance" algorithm we have here at NeatoPlex, we've solved the mystery:

Calcifer, something has landed near us, move the castle sixty miles west.
