In yesterday's briefing they said they were doing a DAN traverse, both active and passive, across the geologic contact between Sheepbed and Gillespie units. Both John Klein and Cumberland are Sheepbed unit.

She's pointed directly at "Point Lake". It'll be fun to see if her next drive is right up and over the shelf.

Decided to have a go at focus-stacking (never tried that before), seeing how there are two night-time images suitable for this: http://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl/multimedia/ra..._DXXX&s=292 and http://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl/multimedia/ra..._DXXX&s=292

Used CombineZP for this, and also adjusted the colour-balance afterwards. The LEDs seem to give the images a cyan cast. I wish there were an intermediate image, as some of the hole's wall is out of focus on both images.

A Few Anaglyphs of recent activities...

Sol 292 - Cumberland drill hole night shot MC34/MC100 pairing- The MC34 image was unrecoverably overexposed where hotly illuminated but it still makes for a pretty nice stereo view....


Sol 297 - Animated GIF of MSL drive movements from front hazcam - total of four frames (at different positions) with a 3 seconds pause for each...


Sol 297 - Navcam panorama from the new location after the short drive...


It's great to be moving again... even if just a few meters for now...

Interesting rock in the Sol 297 Mastcam 100 mosaic.

I presume it's white, some sort of calcium deposit perhaps? Would be nice to see a MAHLI shot of it.

Interesting! Could be a lot of stuff; many compounds are white.

Possibly some sort of depositional mineral, which if true might indicate a fairly long period of liquid water presence.

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.
