Darn. We should have gotten here sooner. It's all dried up.

Nice. Looking forward to the stereo version smile.gif

Is it my imagination, or is Whim's floor anomalously smooth and depleted of smaller gravely material compared to adjacent terrain, almost as if it had been swept clean somehow? Curious as to how that might have happened.

Ok, so it's not a canyon, or a vertigo-inducing crack, but come on, this is something beautiful and special, isn't it..?

A polar....

This makes one feature quite clear. There's a rather abrupt transition in "fill" to the right of Oppy's shadow (marked in red in this clip).

Maybe the floor has accumulated more dust than the surroundings and so most of the "gravel" is covered?
