What fascinates me is that Opportunity is showing us what was once the interior of jumbled, potentially overturned crater walls themselves made up of material from a Miyamoto ejecta blanket hundreds of metres thick. I look forward to seeing what the science team make of this particular jigsaw.

This one, from a Sol 5103 pancam, is also a bit different: a darker coating with perhaps a slightly fluidized appearance.

A few images dribbled out from Sol 5105. In the above, the ground cover between the rocks may hold some interest.

I'm working on the 360 color panorama, It will take me a little while to finish pending if any more images come down when Oppy is able to do so. So here is kind of a rough quick peek of what it will look like using just the L2 filter, and rescaled to 25% of original resolution. pancam.gif

Some pebble and dust grain movement from the wind over 3 sol's. The rock (which I am nicknaming "Jason's Mask") also moved, but this is likely caused by grain evacuation from under and around the rock.

Mods: are we going to discuss the dust storm and its aftermath in this thread or in the dust storm thread?

Good idea. Folks, I've now moved all the dust storm-related posts to the dust storm thread. Keep posting image processing of images Opportunity returned to this thread, dust storm stuff over there. Best wishes to Oppy and the whole team that we'll have new images from Perseverance Valley to post here in the future.

Thank you for this image Sean.. I was always having trouble visualizing how steep a grade we are navigating. This really helps with scale.

Wonderful renderings Sean! smile.gif

I wanted to take my time on this one, in fact, it will probably make its way onto my living room wall. The last 360 panorama from Opportunity before contact was lost due to the storm and I'm hoping it won't be the last from the mission. pancam.gif

Thanks James & excellent work as usual. I often use your images to help me get my bearings and plan compositions.
