... and the same pan in polar format, giving a nice view of the recent moves.

Here is my estimate of what we are seeing in the Sol 1820 drive direction pancam Fred highlighted.

Pancam is a stack of the left and right frames. Background is and 'inverse-polar' projected HRSC image for our current location.

Thanks Mike,
I'd have called it "Full Resolution" view wink.gif

Sure it's not the crater beyond that one? smile.gif

I love that projection trick. I also love the fact that there are people here who care about the long views as I do. There is no scientific justification for it - it must be hardwired into us. Seafarers all.

There's another "Resolution" pancam mosaic planned to be shot during this weekend stop (MIs too).
We're about 20m from the position where the previous pancams pointing to Endeavour were taken, but I suppose it would be no problem to stack the next pancams with the previous ones in an attempt to enhance the features at the horizon. Who wants to try it?

I love these shots too - especially as I have the luxury of two biggish screens sitting side by side that are perfect for long expansive photos!! To me, there is an awesome severity about Mars - so similar to us and yet not.

Beacon's still there in the center of this image: http://qt.exploratorium.edu/mars/opportuni...E0P1979L0M3.JPG
I wonder if it could still be seen "shinning" at a particular time of the day from where we are.

Oppy finds a new way to communicate her behavior. She's sending (h)eart(h)-like features (see top of this image): http://qt.exploratorium.edu/mars/opportuni...E0P2290R2M1.JPG

Ant 103 : How nice ! This is a great QTVR : thanks to you we are on Mars ! And a nice "premiere" much appreciated smile.gif
(votre travail est toujours aussi apprécié et vous nous permettez là une belle évasion martienne, d'autant + appréciée que je suis toujours sur "LUNE", presque épuisé en France, mais édité bientôt aux US...)

Since we are on the theme of percieved shapes, isn't this a
Picasso drawing of a Koala bear eating a slice of Melon?

Also there are some really nice new MI images of what looks like corroded blueberries..

They have a very organic look to them (even though I know they are not)..

With the latest batch of pancams, I think the reason for the little move to the NW on sol 1820 is pretty clear, I'd say. ......
It looks like they wanted to image a good long stretch of rover tracks, something that's easier to do from the "side".



actually looks like oppy decided to do a little sight seeing on her own

"Due to an unanticipated interaction.... Opportunity did not drive backwards toward its goal. Instead, the rover drove forward some distance..."

Yikes! If that had happened during the circumnavigation of Victoria crater, while backing away from a precipice! ohmy.gif
