Actuallly I'm willing to guess where we are - this is not based on data at all, I just stared at navcams and the orbital view for a bit:

I just extracted the latest info from the pancam website and this is the result. I did no manual corrections at all for the time being but most probably will have to. Your guess based on the navcams should be more accurate.

Right... that whole track needs to be shifted to the left about one diameter of that crater at the top left edge of the image.

Do we have enough images for a 360 pan from the recent stop at Augustine?

Fantastic - thanks. And with a little bit of geometric magic, it becomes a circular version of the area.

Power levels up to 574 Whrs - that was a good level at the best part of this past summer!

I don't totally forget Opportunity, and I found myself processing this color panorama of Sol 3609 smile.gif

Spectacular! What a great place. That picture just makes me think I could walk right up to that ridge and peek over it. It seems that we have still not seen the layers under the impact ejecta that we saw at Cape York (Whitewater etc.) - obviously we were very lucky to find that exposure. But there's lots more crater rim to explore.

They identified those layers as the pre impact surface / sub surface, only a few metres above the Burns formation level, so I don't think we could reasonably expect to see it high on Solander. The interesting thing is that Larry Crumpler's LPSC paper identifies that the unconformity between impactites and the pre-impact surface had a dip of some 11 +/- 2 degrees towards the crater centre. This correlates quite nicely to Parker and Bills paper hypothesising that the bench does in fact reflect a previously level coastal geomorphology and there was subsequent tilting towards the crater. Circumstantial, but worthy of thought.

Sol 3613 Pancam panoramic smile.gif Is that some crater we have behind the crest ?

Very nice mosaic Damia! Oppy is really doing mountain hiking smile.gif
There is indeed what looks like a crater on the left part of your panorama. But I can't figure out where it is located on fredk map.

Wow, beautiful! The best view from Oppy I've seen in a long time.

Nice view indeed. I think this is the crater in question over the near crest:

I don't think we've moved much since the 3610 location.
