She's there! Opportunity drove down to the "Cook Haven" bright outcrops on Sol 3512.

Even better, news via Twitter that currents on the front right wheel are back to normal. Phew.

It's been a while since we've seen DD/gusts at Endeavour - here's a new example from sol 3514:

Ooh, nice catch. I'm going to claim I missed that because I was looking at the ground.

Here's "Cape Douglas" on sol 3512, at Opportunity's current location. I'd guess that Cape Douglas might actually refer to the larger rocky area she's next to, but hard to say.

Wow, now there's a rover on Mars as well. What a world we live in!

Jan, did you noticed the wide dust devil on the left? I do not recall any dust devil seen by Opportunity before, but probably my memory is failing... huh.gif

Jan's panorama from just above in polar format. We are at the northern tip of a little outcrop that shows up clearly on the latest JPL route map.

Quick stitch of Sol 3527 Pan Cams with slight adjustments of contrast etc.

If I wasn't going out tonight I would do more on this interesting set of jpegs.

And thanks for the comments on the YouTube vid. Pitched at a different audience rolleyes.gif (although I went for as much accuracy as possible). But I hope they like it too. A great adventure.
