Strange Streak in Mars Curiosity Photo

Looking at the Mars Curiosity raw photo from SOL 60 today I noticed a strange black line streaking down the screen to the left.  It appears to be solid on one end and have a streak going downward.  This does not appear in the other photos.  Appears to be either a glitch or something else.  What do you think it could be? Here is a link to the photo Wiki Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) is a robotic space probe mission to Mars launched by NASA on November 26, 2011 which successfully landed Curiosity, a Mars rover, in Gale Crater on August 6, 2012.The overall objectives include investigating Mars' habitability, studying its climate and geology, and collecting data for a manned mission to Mars.The rover carries a variety of scientific instruments designed by an international team  Thanks for your help and happy UFO hunting!
