Mars Rover crash or landing streamed live

Just heard this mentioned on the radio, so for the night owls http://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl/multimedia/nasatv/ ; maybe a landing or probably a crash streamed live ish some time in the next 2 hours.

There is supposedly a fossil.
Go to the "Lumpy" shadow just to the right of the black masked area on the left of the screen,
on the left of the "Lumpy" shadow, place your X cursor in the dip of the "m"
Click to enlarge and then scroll up the image, two rocks next to each other the face of the nearer one has what appears to be an Ammonite.

@sprite was looking more in the area indicated by the second arrow, but in the cold light of dawn after the effect of a few glasses of wine have worn off I'm not so sure.  Still a stunning image
