Ooo - does that put that color section inbetween my proposed target, and the previous ones straight over the columbia hills and Spirit's current location? We could end up with most of the traverse being documented in color, which would be very nice (and sort of a sensible thing to do anyway I would have thought)

Opportunity did us a favour by driving south, down HiRISE CCD paths.

Thanks for the details - I'm sure the selecting planning and sequencing is more complex than I'm imagining it. Keep us posted!

Yeah, the color swath on this one is right over columbia hills and home plate, although I don't think there is much, if any *new* color coverage, since this observation is part of a monitoring project. Just so you know, this observation will most likely be released the first week of April. We still need some time to validate it, and there's also a big data gap in one of the red ccd's that *might* still get filled in (although I think it is unlikely at this point).

I ran across a website from our local TV Station Channel 5 here in Seattle where the public can decide
what HiRise will photograph next.

Here is the King 5 article site: http://www.king5.com/news/slideshows/New-p...c=y&ref=%2F

and here is the site where we can decide what Hirise should take pictures of next: http://www.uahirise.org/hiwish/

I might suggest HiRise take pictures of Endeavor Crater and the area Opportunity will drive to get there?

Did it not occur to you that they might already have imaged those areas?

Through one of my latest granted HiWishes I recently learnt how remarkably unremarkable remarkable things in CTX images might look in HiRISE images.

This what the target looked like in CTX observation F03_036888_2278_XN_47N098W:

It more or less looked like a ridge that had (or consisted of) spines of some sort (and it looked liked the narrow shadows behind the ridge confirmed it; although in hindsight, maybe they have improper orientations).

This is what the ridge looks in the HiRISE observation:

Not remarkable at all, and I basically got cheated by Mars. smile.gif
