"I think the big block on the right is Tisdale 18"

I thought it was El Capitan 3792, but I may have lost count.

A false-color look at Tisdale 2 from sol 2697:



The flicker gif loses quality because animated gifs only support 256 colors, and the anaglyph definitely loses most of the color with your red-cyan glasses on. I suggest opening the left and right images - the first two images - and flipping between them manually. I notice you can see the reflections change between the two viewpoints; these rocks appear to be shiny. (!)

Holy crap! I didn't even know about this!

Can you say "take an extra long lunch break"?

Just call it "Big Joe 7012". But I think they are way too creative at JPL and NASA: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_rocks_on_Mars

El Capitan is one dangerous (and very large) rock ---14 earthlings have perished visiting its environs this year! I'd keep Oppy away so she doesn't lose her footing and fall over a cliff or get swept over a water fall. huh.gif

I'm wondering if the telecon press conference happened as advertised? At 11:20 PDT, I noticed the tail end of a press conference on NASATV that featured Squyres, Callas, etc. At 12:40 I tried to tune in to the advertised audio conference but it didn't seem to have any link posted. Maybe the NASATV event was a replacement for the telecon?

Press conference is tomorrow at noon Pacific time -- roughly 20 hours from the time of this post,

If Occam had heard my theory, things would be very different now.

"Trailbreaker" Sol 2702 Pancam false-color anaglyph. (Don't know exactly which rock "Trailbreaker" is, or whether it's the whole area.)

Some of these shots are just

un. real.

Love it. The MER folks love the flicker gif's too, so we don't look like idiots with the anaglyph glasses on.

Just seen this entry on Scott Maxwell's twitter:

We are driving away from Tisdale_2 today, heading out to the east. Ultimate destination is northeast, but the long way is the better way.


And that's today, sol 2703. Actually, she may be moving right now.

I bet for the bigger one at the background.

If it was the one at the foreground (center left) the imaging sequence would be named Tisdale-N+1.tongue.gif
