There are some images from MASCOT at the following website, showing the area that we have seen before, but at four different times of day.

At first I was having a hard time connecting surface features but then I realised that MASCOT moved a bit between the late morning and noon images. This is confirmed in the Science paper posted yesterday (23 August 2019).
QUOTE
On the morning of the third day, the lander slipped ~5 cm sideways by executing a mini-move to enable stereo imaging for photogrammetric analysis, reaching a third location (MP3)


I've constructed a 3D anaglyph and a black-and-forth .gif that shows the move, and the 3D perspective of the surface. The 3D image is kinda crude, admittedly.
(Edit: Added a cropped .gif that shows less, of course, but should help look less like a light-switch as that seems to mess with one's mind after a bit)

Similar in theme to my last post. This animation blinks between the Noon image and the Late Afternoon image, showing differences in illumination angle. It looks like the lander has slid a bit between these two images as well, and I'm pretty confident it is not an artifact of the changes in lighting angle.
