Nice - and from it I have tentatively identified the so-called distant hill which I pointed out earlier. However, it may be a larger feature outside the HiRISE image, and I have not yet had a chance to check that.

EDIT - now I have checked it. There is a nice candidate further out, as shown below. I don't know the exact azimuth of the hill so the location of my sight line on the crater rim may be a bit off. When we have a full horizon panorama I can be more precise.

After processing, we have released the full observation images of our InSight on the ground pic that we posted in December. Now you can use HiView to look at the hardware with our JPEG2000 files! https://www.uahirise.org/ESP_058005_1845 NASA/JPL/University of Arizona
