There's a few more frames down - it should now be a complete 360 with no trimmed horizon anywhere smile.gif

The Slab appears to have shifted to the right?? Compared to prevouis sol the rover was nowhere near it. Cool. What did that

There seems to be minor subsidence at the edge of the slab but no movement of the slab itself. This is a reasonably common phenomenon observed by MER and MSL and could have something to do with rover proximity.

Jan's last two panoramas in circular form to show the local area in map form. Soon we will be seeing a broader view of the ridge and the slope we will climb.

Not as polished as some of the nickel-iron meteorites spotted earlier by MSL! Not sure if LIBS was used on this target? Presented here in its Sol 1739 R-MastCam context image to support the RMI image Link
Interestingly (or not) it failed to get a mention in the latest mission update Link
