It appears that the globular drops are on another strut or two also. (The strut in the foreground appears to have a few blobs.)

Again, it pays to flip the above photo 180 degrees because it is upside down.



For comparison, here again are the photos compared prior regarding the large increasing set of blobs:

It is still odd the globs only appear in a few specific places. I still think this may indicate leaks or spills from the chemical analysis areas. It will be interesting to keep an eye out for further growth though.
