Hi Ray.

When I first posted this I was surprised that JPL would use the
"U" word. That's like government using the "R" word. Then along
came the Cosmic Rays and Charged Coupled Device explanation
which was a bit of a hoot. They shot from the hip on that one.

You'd never be able to see anything in the photos if that was
the case. And impacting the CCDs is such a nice straight line,
too.

As for a meteor, the trail looks to thick and too short-not
forgetting of course that it would have to be much lower in
Mar's atmosphere to have the same appearance as one in Earth's
atmosphere. Would it not then be much closer/larger, and more
easily identifiable? I think we can rule out a short duration
con trail-or can we?
