So what might these 3 plus billion year old clay deposits actually look like to Opportunity's cameras? Are they likely to be dramatically obvious ...?


I'm thinking that without the mini-tes, it might be difficult to distinguish them. Now the loss of the MTES starts to hurt.

I love the crazy lustre of the bedrock in the latest pancams - Chester Lake perhaps?

How much information does the lustre give the geologically minded here about the rock? Can't wait to see this in colour...

I continue to be stunned and amazed, not only at the imagery coming from Oppy, but the gorgeous processing y'alls are doing. Thank you so many times!

"Chester Lake" looks very interesting. Ridges of harder, darker rock jutting up out of lighter rock... cracks... pits... it's got it all...

Some of the shiny bits do look like knobbly inclusions of a harder material, but others look like flat quadrilaterals bounded by
the surface crack patterns, as if they could be places where thin flakes of weathered surface material have recently broken away. I wonder if any of the loose flakes lying around the vicinity can be matched up shape-wise to individual shiny patches on the rock?

Chester Lake in 'false but trying' and 'stretched to within an inch' colours.




Fascinating...

That's so much better than my paper version, thanks! smile.gif

And while I'm at it huge thanks to everyone for all the wonderful rockscapes and Endeavour vistas on this thread.
