The emission angle is only 10.6 deg for that shot, so isn't the turret more likely? Knowing what azimuth the camera view was from (ie 10.6 deg in which direction?) and where the turret was at that time should decide it.

The end of the arm is largely dark. That's the top of the ChemCam housing on the RSM - no doubt about it.

It was Sol 2423 for MSL

https://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl/multimedia/ra...00#/?slide=2423
Plan Description
https://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl/mission/mars-...cks-at-our-feet

"Then on the second sol ChemCam will acquire observations on 2 autonomously selected AEGIS targets, along with some Navcam dust devil and suprahorizon observations to monitor the atmosphere."

It's the second sol of a 2 sol plan that had a drive on the first sol - therefore the arm remains stowed.

That includes a ChemCam AEGIS block (Navcam images with a CCAM sequence ID are AEGIS) a dust devil movie and supra-horizon movie, and then the RSM would have stowed - which is 0az, -48 deg in rover frame. i.e. pointing forward and down.

The arm was stowed at the time it was taken.

Jan's sol 2463 panorama in circular format, another small drive on the rocky hill. I'm running a bit slow on the map update as I am roughing it in the bush at Ucluelet on Vancouver Island. Spent the day on Long Beach... it's a tough life being retired. Map update will follow when i can get to it.

The MSL web pages have recently been modified (upgraded?)

Like many I'm not a fan of change part way through a mission but I'll likely warm to the revised format eventually. But that is not the reason for this post.

The image server changes may have had a serious effect on Midnight Planets and Joe Knapp's image pages. Unless they have both have had issues at the same time

There are recent images on JPL's server that are missing from both Midnight Planets and Joe's page. Sol dates look OK, but published dates appear to have reset to the beginning of 2000. Selecting thumbnails on MP's sol 2466 page goes straight to 404 errors (both on PC and APP versions). Joe's 2466 page has no thumbnails, just image placeholders.

The new 'whereistherovernow' page has all the map thumbnails, but clicking any of the recent maps gives 404 page errors.

Hopefully these are just teething problems with the new design that will be fixed soon, but not sure if fixing those teething issues will fix Joe's and MP pages.

Joe's site has been showing only mahli images for a couple of weeks now, so there seems to have been a different problem there.

But a completely new official public image site would mean both Joe and MP would need to completely rewrite their image harvesting code, I'd think. That's a big job.

Are you saying that there's something on https://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl/multimedia/raw that is actually wrong, or just that the page format changed? If there's an actual problem then you should report it to https://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/feedback/
