Hopefully they'll name a feature Pumpkin, after Cinderella, & give the frost a fitting place to collect. unsure.gif

Tweaked and enhanced and generally messed-about-with-in-Photoshop "Frost Patch"... Very Viking 2ish I think... smile.gif

I think these are early morning (sol 84) clouds..? (Maybe someone could confirm that for me? I'm not enough of an expert on this to discount the possibility it's just noise). If they are, others will do better, I'm sure. smile.gif

Hey Stu,

By far not an expert, but from what experience I do have I would say absolutely -- nice catch. I'm not able to check at the moment (hope to soon though), but were those taken through one of the WV filters?

(Also interesting is the bright point near the 10:00 position. I figure it's a 'hot pixel', but again will hopefully be able to look better in a bit.)

Not sure about the filters, sorry, others will know I'm sure. Amongst the Sol 84 images there is a sequence of 9 very similar looking ones... I thought there was a hint of something on one of them ( http://phoenix.lpl.arizona.edu/images.php?...222&cID=235 ) so I just took a chance...

EDIT: much clearer view through the right "eye"... both animations up on my Gallery site...

Pshaw..... No problem. I decided to go look 'quickly':

Left is filter C (12) which is IR between what our geostationary WxSats use for seeing WV and cloud top temperatures.
Right is filter C (12) which is Blue.

Thank you for your gallery.

Many thanks to all who have posted imagery of that frosty bowl. Isn't it curious that frost is not apparent in most of the wider angle images? Is that a function of the time of day the images were captured? I'm too tired tonight to explore that avenue.

That was quite informative, but I think we need our workspace map to be updated. wink.gif

The Spoof: Phoenix Mars Lander Discovers Life on Mars, Asks It For Asylum

QUOTE
Smith displayed a copy of a document that Phoenix referred to as its "Application for Asylum and Withholding of Removal, form I-589." On the standard U.S. Immigration Service form, Phoenix had painstakingly scratched out every appearance of the words "United States" and replaced them with the word "Mars" in a childlike hand. Phoenix used the form to outline its possible contributions to Martian society, if and when it's offered protected immigrant status: "I'm a professional photographer with my own cameras, I possess a modest oven that allows me to heat small samples of dirt, and I am capable of digging a three-inch wide trench up to 1/2 a meter deep in only a few Mars days.

The state of the work volume on sol 84 - what a mess. smile.gif Does that hill beyond Dodo-Goldilocks have a name? Very pretty.
