So you control it? There are some post C/A Iapetus images from Cassini we need to speak about. laugh.gif

It's quite hard to see, but I think in the middle of Mike's image, between the two large ripples, there is a small crater (more obvious in 3D) the crater is called Halfmoon and colour imaging is planned for tosol (1792).

Then driving again on sol 1793. wheel.gif

activity for two consequitive days: Does this mean we're in unrestricted sols again ?

P.S.: this was probably asked before but I could not find pointers/link to the answer yet:
what again is the formula for the restricted/unrestricted Sols schedule ?
I know they approximately alternate every two weeks or so (?) but it would be nice to have place/link (or formula) to determine the actual schedule ....

I just would like to say thank you (again, because it can not be said often enough) for your prompt "navcam-panorama coverage" which makes this Trek an almost live-experience smile.gif

Thanks smile.gif

I'm in a rectilinear kind of mood these days myself; I think it adds some realism. Now I just need to do something about the sky...

Thanks for pointing out that crater, James. I had suspected something was there based on the orbital imagery:

Here's an anaglyph view of the west side of the crater (the Halfmoon side?)

A nice little crater overrun and almost buried by large dunes.

Yikes - I was thinking they should drive that way. Looks like a sandtrap in the anaglyph version.

Actually it looks like my guess was wrong - now there is pointing data for the thumbnails it looks like 'Halfmoon' is the small crater further to the southwest

(in this navcam: http://qt.exploratorium.edu/mars/opportuni...00P0705R0M1.JPG )

I had assumed it was closer than that one, as multiple pointings were taken, which didn't seem necessary for that more distant one.

Still, the little one next to us does look like a small buried crater - and rover trap!

James, you are correct. 1/2 moon is the crater in the above NAVCAM. We were supposed to drive next to it but the rover decided it didn't want to so we decided to turn left and head south, then SW instead.

Nice to have a long view to the horizon again.

Part of Endeavor again visible on the left of this navcam image?

Yup. The terrain right ahead looks also a bit smoother in the HiRISE shots.
It would be great to have some pancams on the direction you pointed to see more in detail that feature on the horizon. I did this sort of "combo" including the background I'm now using on my map and a polar view from the current site to cross check the headings and whatever that feature is, it appears a bit off to be part of Endeavour.
Attached Image


OT: Can someone provide me a link to a picture like that on the background but including Endeavour completely?

Edit: Oops. I changed a bit the "overview" part of my route map to include the whole Endeavour on it and now I see that the feature on the horizon actually matches the northern rim.
