The BGR article NASA’s Curiosity rover saw something flash on Mars, and people are freaking out is one of many nearly identical clickbait articles about a recent image that contains a bright spot.
None of them I looked at so far indicate where curiosity was exactly or which way it was pointing, but the image in the BGR article does link directly to a JPL repository of images:

sol 2438 so it shouldn't be too difficult to track down.
Question: Where exactly was Curiosity when this image was taken and in which direction is this bright spot? Is it possible to estimate where a shiny rock would be to produce this spot if it turns out to be a reflection?
I have a hunch that it's not going to turn out to be a rock at all:
