Is there a smudge on the Navcam left eye lens? Not visible in the right eye.

Yes - looks to be a new but of dust picked up on the optics. I'm currently on Paternity leave - but when I'm back on MER in a few weeks, I'll be attempting to acquire a set of NavCam flatfields using a technique already used on MSL that might end up being rather timely to calibrate this out.

It is not a bug, it is a feature. We got a nice cleaning event, about 100Wh more, so I'm not going to complain about it.

Sol 4973. Dark spot seems to be gone now. More cleaning?

And it is again: Happy Landing Day, Opportunity! It is unbelievable 14 years since landing in Meridiani Planum in the Eagle crater. 14 years, and still roving. wheel.gif wheel.gif wheel.gif
The rover has driven 45000 meters on the surface of mars. Currently it is the 4979th sol for Opportunity, and it is still functioning: hardware, batteries, software. Unbelievable!

And if no one notices: For Spirit it would be tomorrow the Sol 5000! (http://www.greuti.ch/oppy/html/filenames_ltst.htm)

Nice! And here is a rough projection of Navcam images of the current location (rough because it is not made using a DEM to remove relief distortions) to show the very interesting features here.

Thanks to Larry Crumpler, a new Rover Field Report from Mars - with a couple of new feature names.

This channel seems to have been pretty much swept clear of regolith including large rocks.

Parallel eye. This rock seems more cavity than substance. Perhaps pumice but is there any volcanic terrain nearby?

Also note the upturned piece of surface in the background. I wonder if these insubstantial fragments are light enough to be blown by the wind? Perhaps in the past if Mars had a denser atmosphere.

(Congrats on that wonderful MI self-portrait, by the way.)

Thank you Olivier for the kind words. smile.gif

I extended the Opportunity color image of the tracks with the single Navcam image that was taken during the "Selfie" for more context.

My attempt at the tracks from 5002 (plus 4998 as a bonus). First piece of processing I've done in about a year!
