Drive during 1944, L-NavCam pan roughly stitched in MS ICE be should be good to help pinpoint the location. (the plan called for a 25 meter drive south)

New thread! Please keep sharing sol 1943 self-portrait work in the previous thread, and carry on discussing the ongoing mission here. Curiosity should be driving east across the top of the ridge for a little bit, chasing interesting CRISM pixels, before driving down into the valley. If we're lucky we might see a little action with restoring the drill to service, too.

Sol 1944 Navcam pan smile.gif Do we have a name for "the Valley-Behind-the-Ridge" (my temporay proposition for this place) ?

The most common informal name seems to be "Phyllosilicate Trough", see e.g. here.

Since Phyllo means "sheets/dough" and silica means hard, are we going to get placenames based on pastries?

The phyllosilicates form a large class of silicate minerals, with the clay minerals as a subclass. Phyllosilicates have been identified by CRISM in the Phyllosilicate Trough (see e.g. fig. 6 on page 1723 in the paper).

Drive on 1946, here is what I could salvage from a rough stitch of the available L-NavCam's, hopefully it may assist in refining the location (mods to delete when the full version is posted)

Incoming !

Still some pictures to complete it, but Sol 1946 is pretty, we have a good view on "Phyllosillicate Valley".

Edit : complete smile.gif

For location purposes I did a rough patch of Damia's panorama and made a circular version:

A long distance RMI mosaic, roughly assembled from 9 overlapping images acquired on sol 1948.
The early pointing data on Joe Knapp's image page suggests that it is located Southwest of the rover, if confirmed then it could be a valley Mesa or a section the north side of 'Phyllosillicate Valley'.
I see a possible candidate on the NavCam images, but my monitor is poor (like my aging eyes). It could be mentioned in the weekend plan, but I've not found it yet. Thankfully we often get associated MastCam context frames with these image sets, hopefully we'll see it soon so we can establish the actual location.

EDIT: As often happens, another image from this set has come down which extends it to the left side a little. I wont flood the server by posting the updated version. Maybe we will see one of those rather nice pansharpened versions (hint) providing the MastCam images have enough detail smile.gif

Looks like a nice drive (>20 meters?) on sol 1949. MS ICE does not want to play ball with the available images, but there is a lovely view West of the rover's tracks as it drove back onto the top of the ridge. Looking forward to seeing the full pan with a nice view of what awaits us in the valley.

Sol 1949 Navcam panoramic. Just one missing frame but a very nice view.

I roughly patched Damia's panorama for location purposes - here is a circular projection of it.

I thought this might look amazing in 3D. I wasn't disappointed.
