This is a quick reprojection of the sol 1281 post-drive Hazcam images.

Here's the 8-frame MAHLI mosaic from Sol 1277 (tagged as Sol 1278) of some of the nodule field in the Murray formation.

There are also close-up images of three other nodules acquired on Sol 1278: Nodule 1, Nodule 2, Nodule 3.

Driving conditions look a lot better from this location smile.gif Mash up of a few of the 1281 L-NavCams and a crop from JPL's Traverse map. I guess they have choices for the path, but following the -4424 contour line looks a fairly safe path?

Here are Jan's last two panoramas in circular format. Ideal for location-finding! Thanks to Jan and all our panorama-makers for their contributions.

The fact that it's not in the R frame tells you it's almost certainly an artifact, since the L and R frames are taken close to simultaneously.

It looks very much like the negative of a typical cosmic ray hit, so probably was a hit that was dark-frame subtracted from the image.

I was trying to figure out the little hole in the sand sol1278 which seems to have been poked sometime between sol1276 and sol1277, from the MAHLI instrument?

Looks that way, but could not find the action on any of the Engineering images....

Curiosity Mission Update from Ken Herkenhoff (March 15th) Sol 1283: Driving over Stimson bedrock
QUOTE
The 26-meter drive planned for sol 1282 completed successfully, giving the rover nice views of interesting features in the Stimson unit. Some of these features appear to be the result of erosion by windblown sand and are the subject of a Right Mastcam 7x2 mosaic planned for Sol 1283. ChemCam will measure elemental chemistry at the edge of one of the bedrock blocks and Mastcam will acquire another mosaic of a fracture named "Welwitschia Wash" before the rover drives away. The view from the intended location, about 40 meters toward the west, is expected to be excellent because much of the Gale crater rim and Mt. Sharp will be visible, and the atmosphere is not as dusty as usual. Other post-drive observations include ChemCam RMI and Right Mastcam mosaics of features on Mt. Sharp that are so far away that they can be targeted accurately using available image data. Also, the Left Navcam will be used to search for clouds and dust devils.
