Nasa shows Crusader Castle on Mars, or not.

The latest images from curiousity rover show clouds scudding across the martian sky above a Crusader Castle.

Yes, I know this is a processing artifact, but it is both interesting and amusing. See this link:-

It does indeed look like a low-lying castle on the right. I confess I was not familiar with the Crusader type, but I've now looked it up. Bamburgh is not too far from where I live, and to follow up from Andrew, that image could be north Northumberland on a poor summer day. LOL. David
