That's my favorite rendering of the view so far.

NickF, in your panorama it looks very much like a dust cloud is traversing the bottom of the crater! Is this the first Martian haboob we've witnessed?

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.

Here's my take on the sol 2681 L2 pancam images. I've combined L2/R2 imagery in a central frame to mask the missing data.

Awesome!

Now that I have all of the oohs! and aaahh! out of my system, I can't wait to get to work, check out some MI's, and see what this place is really made of. smile.gif
There is some really fascinating geology waiting to be discovered here!

I guess it is stating the obvious, but the bedrock here appears to be a planed off jumble of ejecta blocks.

Hmmm, I'm not so sure, Tom. Here is a quick photo interpretation of a piece of Mike Howard's pan:

The unit the rover is on now seems like it could be a highly fractured eolian sandstone, maybe similar to the lower part of the Burns formation seen at Victoria and Endurance. Some of the fractures are filled with bright-looking minerals. Also intriguing are the horizontal features on the slope and crater floor in the distance. Here is a key of my interpretations:

red lines: large-scale trough cross bed foresets
black arrows: apparent sediment transport direction
yellow lines: mineralized sub-vertical fractures
blue lines: receding shorelines?!?!?!

The nature of the contact between the sulfate sediments and Cape York is going to be a fascinating puzzle in field geology, which is probably solvable eventually, given the combination of Oppy's ground truth and the HiRISE and CRISM context. The contact certainly looks very peculiar. I'd like to have Oppy eventually inch its way across the contact, taking a downward-looking color pancam every six inches or something.

Wow, I can't believe we're finally 'there' -- what a long strange trip it's been.
