I don't think it is a dead pixel.  The pixel resolution of the picture seems high, so that pixels would be much smaller than that black dot.  In the posted picture, the black spot is 6 pixels wide and only 1 or  2 pixels tall.  That's an irregular shape for a dead pixel, even if the version of the pic posted here was down-converted from an original.

I'm going to go with spec of dust.

The picture taken from the left side of the same camera at the same time doesn't show it, so it's something to do with the camera itself.

The pictures from 30 seconds before and 30 seconds after the one in question also don't show it, so it's either a fleck of dust temporarily in front of the lens, or a one-time digital error.

The world is so exquisite with so much love and moral depth, that there is no reason to deceive ourselves with pretty stories for which there's little good evidence. Far better...is to look death in the eye and to be grateful every day for the brief but magnificent opportunity that life provides.

Is there another photo from the right side that would show the same mark?

I added more links to the above post. If you got it from the NASA website, why didn't you click through to those pictures yourself?

Even the post on /pol linked to JPL, so if that's where you got it it still seems like extremely lazy anomaly hunting to not check nearby cameras and times.

It popped up on a random google search but I didn't bother running through the index, and couldnt find a workable website that links to more pictures. Looks like dead pixels to me and if there is another photo from that lens it would easily prove this.

I dunno. Doesn't seem like there's enough clock or cock to be the blue man.
