We couldn't see Tribulation from Victoria


Nice to have that reminder. I was wondering if you could also remind us of how much was/was't visible from the rise around Concepcion? From here on Solander the horizon does look paler and possibly somewhat more distant directly behind Sutherland Point and southern Cape York. If I recall right the plains do rise steadily in that direction.

if using Tesheiner's google earth kmz as an elevation guide we should have seen it around Mackinack 2024 as well since that even looks higher than the Conception area. though I ran out of time and cant look further..

The "Distant vistas" thread is a good place to look for first sightings. I don't think we could see Solander from Concepcion. There's a good inverse-polar showing what we could see here.

The first mention I know of of Solander was in this post. But it was barely visible a bit earlier, on sol 2269:

Anyway, this suggests that once we get up onto the first main hill of Solander to our south, we may be able to see clear across something like 10 km of plains to the west... pancam.gif

Happy Christmas and New Year everyone rolleyes.gif

Over Christmas I made a movie which I think you guys might like: -

Opportunity Rover: 6 Month Journey On Meridiani Planum Mars June-Dec13 [Movie From Haz Cam Pics]
http://youtu.be/I0xUEyMIvBI

Of course, following things here made it so much easier to make the movie. Thanks guys - love your high standards. And map makers like ET, I hope you like my little moving tracking map idea!

Must get back into making a few posts huh.gif . Hugh

Thank you, nice slideshow. (The soundtrack I could have done without though.)
It is funny how the trek of this little rover have affected me, since when I watched the youtube file - I considered it to be familiar surroundings.
Just as much as the images I did browse trough yesterday taken in one environment that at least superficially is quite similar - but that I have physically visited.

Given that our rover is currently on its winter campaign we thought it appropriate to have a dedicate thread to that and move several posts there.

Winter campaign at Cook Haven is the currently active thread so posts should be done there, unless it is related with something before sol 3512 in which case this is still the proper place.
