One of the Sol 1272 ChemCam RMI mosaics from yesterday extends the Sol 1252/1263 mosaic of the northern edge of Peace Vallis.

It also appears that the other Sol 1272 RMI image set can be used in a mosaic with the first strip of RMI images captured on Sol 1257. However, since these are on the crater floor much closer to Curiosity, there is a significant amount of parallax between the two observations.

And here's a partial NavCam mosaic of Curiosity's surroundings from Sol 1269 and 1271 images.

Really nice! You can see the cliffs at the edge of Naukluft Plateau, and beyond them the rough surface of the plateau, and beyond them the individual hills of the Murray Buttes, which we have been heading for for a long time. And I just realized a little conflict in naming here... the Murray Buttes and the light-toned rocks we are just leaving, the Murray Formation, are both named after Bruce Murray, and for a long time they seemed to be geographically separated entities. But now they are coming together - you can just see a little patch of Murray Formation between the buttes beyond the plateau in Sean's image. So we will soon be sitting on Murray Formation, looking up at the Murray Buttes which look like they consist of the Stimson Formation.

Meanwhile, here is a reprojected version of a panorama from the last stop (thanks, Sean), and a reprojected Hazcam pair which I used to get the current location.

It's Monday and Curiosity did a nice drive over the weekend to gain some elevation onto the slope of the Naukluft Plateau so I'm splitting the thread here. Please go to the new thread for discussions of events of sol 1274 and later.

And there goes Flickr again -- "You've found a picture to download! Just sign in! Of course, you understand that we can't just let any riff-raff download these images..."

Disgusting.

Hey other Doug, thanks to Paul he advised a small edit to the Flickr url which should let you see the image now. Let me know if it helps...I'll amend my other flickr posts to follow suit.

Oh, I can see it. Just can't download it unless I register with Flickr, and I don't like doing that kind of thing on general principles. And that hasn't changed, it still tells me I have to create an account.

the fix for the Flickr problem:

in the URL box, after the last / you need to type in sizes/l/

It gives you the screen you want, where you can select the image size and it will download no problem. (Thanks to the person who gave us that tip a while ago, I forget who it was).

Here is another view of the approach to Naukluft Plateau, this time from Sol 1151.

Finely layered outcrop imaged with MC100 on sol 1272 at 8h05 local time. Interestingly, there are bright rocks (calcium sulfate ?) at its base.
