Working on the assumption that it's never too early to start analyzing images here on UMSF:

[attachment=43759:sol_0_im...nnotated.jpg]

The small arrows outline a skid mark on the surface made as that rock was pushed by the thrusters, as also seen twice at the Phoenix site.

EDIT: Now I'm not certain that thing on the right is a footpad. There may be some more small rocks over there.

i was assuming it was mini dune formation by thruster blast, but yep probably same scenario as Phoenix.

presumably the image is from the Instrument Context Camera, does anyone know if the lander is situated as planned with the workspace oriented to the south?

The landing site looks a very good place for HP3 instrument since the land is smooth, almost lack of stones and is sandy.

About the Lens of the camera, I thought that the next mission, this must be covered by a protective and after a landing, it should be opened before taking a picture. This is to prevent the lens of the camera from getting dirty

But it is! The cover is transparent and will come out later. Just as has happened with Curiosity.

Now waiting for the post landing conference at 22:00 UTC. Congratulations to the whole team! What a great job they've done!

I did a quick and dirty cleanup of the initially tweeted image (not the better version that came out later) to capture the feeling of the scene.

Superb!

Shadow seems to suggest that: toward lander and image-left, from mid-afternoon southern Sun.

Veronica and Emily both look like they've gotten younger in the 5 or 6 years since I last saw either of them.

Forum note: Okay, not sure when the next update from NASA will be, but we'll keep the discussion here for now. Solar panel deployment confirmation expected no earlier than 1735 PST (0135 GMT), so hopefully we will receive word of that and possibly other data as well.
