Thought this was a bit of fun, all the HiRISE imagery I can find of Home Plate as a 10 frame animated gif (frame 10 = a map)

VERY obvious is the near total obscuration of the surface during one observation at the time of the dust storm.

Sharon, Byron - be warned - no wreckless driving, we're watching you smile.gif

Brilliant Doug!!

Except that, speaking for myself, I would prefer that Sharon and Byron do perform 'wreckless' driving tongue.gif

Just because I am English, don't expect me to write it properly smile.gif

The matching 'chute animation. Dropped a few frames because of visibility, and on a few it wasn't actually on the swath.

I did it the dd-mm-yy way, but it says 23-08 not 23-00 (unless I've got something really wrong )

Oh, that's just great......the first traffic cam is already on Mars.

And I suppose SHARAD can be reconfigured for a speed gun?
