[i][Justin Maki, an imaging scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory who is the lead for Curiosity's engineering cameras] isn't writing off the phenomenon as a double-shot of cosmic rays or data dropouts — even though other experts went to that explanation immediately. In his view, that spot of light really did enter Curiosity's right-hand navigation camera, even though there's no sign of the spot in the stereo imagery from the left-hand camera.
Instead, Maki and his colleagues think it's either a well-placed flash of reflected sunlight, or light shining through a chink in Curiosity's camera housing.[/i]
