It's not so much a new location as a new, extended view...

EDITED Having no luck with the 1727 end-of-drive NavCams using MS ICE... So here is a roughly assembled long distance (~100 meters) RMI Mosaic of a section the Vera Rubin Ridge, only four of the 5 frames have been released as 'enhanced data products'.

Here is 2km square of Vera Rubin Ridge & beyond made with best available HiRISE data & compressed to fit within Sketchfab constraints.



Vera Rubin Ridge @Sketchfab [ 2km square ]

The 8k texture limit covers approx 2km sq.

Scaled for VR so you can start wandering from Sol 1727 location.

Cropped 1727 R-MastCam mosaic (2 frames in MS ICE, sharpened with 1 meter-long scale bar added), features what I believe to be Spaulding Mountain The sedimentary layers appear to be a little odd / puzzling for mudstone? Likely a valid explanation for these cross bedding like features (thin mineral filled fractures?) smile.gif

Slightly ahead of schedule...here is the 2km tile beyond Vera Rubin Ridge using best available HiRISE data squished into Sketchfab & scaled for VR

This is Jan's panorama for sol 1726 - the one clearly showing the ridge - in circular form.
