At first glance the landing site looks a bit less rocky to me than most of the earlier landing sites did.

Congratulations to the Perseverance team!

On the JPL feed there is a map that has been in view a few times. If the green dot is the estimated landing site it looks pretty dead center of the landing ellipse.

Except for the Viking and Pathfinder sites.

Looks like it landed amidst a small cluster of rocks in a field of sand (hopefully not spirit killer quicksand).

Fantastic, and not as rocky as the Viking or Pathfinder sites. A few blocks with angualr edges upright, and maybe some low sand drifts further back. The excitment of landing on another planet never pales...
