Propguy:

"Saw a few images today ... that show the 3rd footpad and my cruise thrusters."

Do we know which sol these were taken? I'm eager to see them.

I took that to be the second footpad. And no thrusters, or am I missing them?

I think the cruise thrusters are there on the left side.

I am intrigued by this land feature.
It looks like a rock(s) was pushed down an incline (by a dust devil maybe?) ??
Any ideas? This 'smooth slide' is something I've never seen...
(BTW...That distant hill is on the horizon right above it)

I am not convinced that it is a "slide". Could be just the way the rocks are placed that makes it look like it. Not enough resolution to be sure.

"I think the cruise thrusters are there on the left side."

Makes total sense now. I had been interpreting Propguy's comment as meaning there was an image looking under the lander, back to the other footpad and revealing the landing thrusters. Just call me too impatient!

I'm probably breaking rules...etc., however, is it possible to determine reflected terrain detail from the so-far instrument images posed (might add to the location controversy)?
