On Mark Lemmons raw image site for SOL 134:
http://www.met.tamu.edu/mars/134.html

It says "WCL 3 Poke Pose" where the scoop is over WCL 3.

Some interesting action coming up trying to get the sample into the cell I think smile.gif

"Sol 134 Spoil Heap" in my Gallery, if anyone wants a look...

... and if anyone else is confused about which trench is which now, there's a very useful labelled pic here on the Phoenix site.

(and while I'm here, can I just cheekily invite people to take a look at my new blog, set up after AOL's genius decision to just scrap all its Journals... probably for the best, Wordpress looks much better!)

Colourised image of dust grains seen on Sol 137... as usual, no claims of accuracy or scientific worth, simply offered here as an unashamedly Pretty Picture smile.gif

Sounds like the hatch-battening was for stormy reasons

Up to your usual high standard Stu! Looking at just how undulating the ground is, it makes you realized that Phoenix was quite lucky to land so flat. Suppose it had landed with solar panels tilting away from the sun............

I still can't get over how much the Phoenix site looks like the mine tailings in my home town. (Sorry; couldn't find a closer view.) At the ground level, it's downright eerie, complete to the frost humps/upheavals, which I am convinced are responsible for this topography.
