I second that emotion!

perhaps a dual refraction near bottom R hazcam frames sol 380-383 (similar in L hazcam)

Ad hoc, I'd say reflected sunlight looks more likely.

Yeah, those reflections have been visible in hazcam before. Can someone suggest what the reflecting surfaces are?

The arm, the rover chassis, the suspension, the organic blanks, the spare drill bits, the dust observing tray, the wheels.

Some, one, none, or all of the above.

Knowledge of the time the hazcams were taken will tell you where the Sun was. With some basic geometry, that would let you recover the orientation of the reflecting surfaces. That should narrow it down.

Closing in on "Waypoint #1"...

According to JPL's recently published Route Map we should now be some 300 meters or so away from the first geologic waypoint. The green triangle identifying it on their map is centered just to the west of the large depression at the bottom of the maps below (Phil's "Outcrop 1"). Here's a full resolution anaglyph (and reduced resolution cross-eye version) covering the terrain between our current position and the waypoint area. Though I added color, the anaglyph has not been reduced from the 29cm per pixel HIRISE JP2 master. The cross eye version has been reduced to about about 50cm per pixel. As Emily had pondered a while ago, I wonder which of the several bright outcrops in this area they'll be focusing on? There are two distinct light toned features to the west and NW of the depression. Perhaps one of those? There looks to be some really interesting geology in the depression too, and given the stereo elevation is slightly exaggerated, it looks like there might be few theoretically "safe" paths into it as well.

Anaglyph - 2064 x 2292 pixels:


X-Eye Version - 1169 x 915 pixels:


Edit: ...and for good measure here's a slightly higher resolution cross-eye version close-up of the waypoint area only (1800 x 743 pixels). Should be a about 35cm per pixel I figure....

Another drive on 385.
Hey, I'm a poet and didn't know it.
Looks like it little west of south but maybe I'm just flapping my mouth.
Tomorrow I'll update my map, but now I've gotta ... case of poet's block.

144 meters? It's a new record. The USGS blog said they were going for 100 meters with an autonav portion at the end. Looks like that's what happened:

Sol 385, 144 meters

Also, a decided turn to the south, towards that region of geological interest.

Just an amazing drive; 132.5m direct, over hills! Usually the tracking data needs to be taken with a large grain of salt, but in this case, judging by the dusty patch to the left of Curiosity's stopping point, it seems (maybe) to be about right to me. These images link to Flickr.

Sol 385 - Basin dead ahead - and I'll be doggone. What a nice drive. Judging from the position on Joe's Map then we ought to be overlooking the big basin, and sure enough - it's dead ahead and completely visible below us. Even from this distance the geology down there looks pretty interesting. The anaglyph really shows off the elevation drop ahead...

...and mhoward - placing the MC's over the Navs and tracing that path - nicely done.
