Sol 166 NAVCAM Left view. This one went down kicking and screaming; tons of parallax with such close in images....

I was hoping for something like that as well! Shooting images rapidly as the rover is driving - then making it into a movie like we did with the MAHLI images. It would be incredible to see a motion picture like that from Mars!

And my take on Sol 166, MR. GigaPan - while I'm here smile.gif :

Here's a MAHLI mosaic made from some of today's (Sol 168) MAHLI shots:

Nice Ed. Mayhap it is just that I am more comfortable with false color manipulation of Opportunity's images compared to Curiosity, but doesn't Glenelg seem to lack rind formations which would possibly indicate either less chemical weathering even than at Meridiani, or higher levels of mechanical/thermal weathering?

Just one more frame to go, and the full panoramic will be complete smile.gif.

Color view of sol 168's proceedings (with some APXS action) via a Mastcam-34 pano:

This same target shows up as brushed on sol 169, but was it already brushed for the sol 168 APXS observation?

Hey folks. I took 6 of the left HazCam images and made them into an animated GIF (Sol 169).

But... Do I see a star, planet, or moon directly over Mount Sharp in the last 3 or so frames?

That would be cool if it weren't an artifact... biggrin.gif

Edit - I appreciate the answer below. Thanks...

One test - does it also show up in the corresponding right hand image? It does not in this case, so it must be an artifact specific to the left hand image (plus the sky is too bright for any such object anyway).

Compare the two. It's an imaging artifact
