I agree with that crater location. And it was only a small move, 3 m or so.

Hi Bill,

Here is a Phil-O-Vision (10x stretch, vertical only) of that navcam 3618?

Attached Image


I don't know how to obtain azimuths from the pictures (some here do I think)
If I had a bearing we could consult a HiRise image for possibilities

First Guess:: it looks like a rock.
It is as dark if not darker that the surrounding 'horizon stuff', a more distant object could be lighter than the horizon material since there is more atmosphere and dust to see through.

cheers

I don't know if we can see out across the plains yet but if so there is a candidate small crater in that general direction that is quite prominent. I gave it the nickname Rockaway when we first saw it. It does look darker than its distance suggests.

Some crazy-looking "raked" or washboard terrain from pre-drive 3621:

I assume we're just seeing lots of fine ripples perpendicular to the line of sight. The ripples are hardly visible in the corresponding navcam:

That's the same nameless 5-10 metre crater we've been eyeing for some time now.

Very impressive!
As visible from following plots, in the last 5 years dust factor never went above 79.5% (record set on Sol 2313 or July 27, 2010):
