Is the current plan to find the smectite deposits, and are the clays expected to be near Argos, or further down slope into Marathon?

ADMIN: It looks like this is a good point to transition to a new topic from Sol 4078 - welcome to 'Marathon Valley'

Please continue to post pre-sol 4078 comments here. Post that date in the new topic.

Sorry if this has already been covered, but what of this "dome" seen atop the hill in this image from Sol 4073? http://mars.nasa.gov/mer/gallery/all/1/p/4...6P2413R1M1.HTML

That certainly got the "anomaly crowd" going. http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread1094170/pg1

Could anyone please calculate the coordinates of this feature so that we could have a look in HiRISE imagery smile.gif

Check Jan's post just a few up from yours to see this little rock in context. I think it's the one I have pointed out in this crop from Tim Parker's JPL map.

I don't have a sense of the size of the dome, but its shape reminds of something called an exfoliation dome. No need to invoke ETs', these form by a completely natural geologic process. I've seen a few in person at Big Bend in Texas. Those measured tens of feet in diameter and occurred more-or-less in a cluster. Hopefully, Oppy will get a closer look at this in the future!
