Just to briefly distract you all from Pluto ... for once, and for a limited time, Solar images haven't been only for watching weather on Mars. MSL has been sunspot watching, and a couple of the active regions have become coronal mass ejections before the active areas came around to the side of the Sun Earth can see.

(STEREO-A is coming back online from conjunction mode, with the imager recovery set to begin tomorrow.)

Cool. smile.gif This is a bonus application that never occurred to me; what a smart use of resources!

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

I animated the relevant Mastcam color images from the PDS, resulting in three GIF views of the Martian sunset observed by Curiosity rover on Sol 956:

Pretty sure that's Deimos (way too small). Very nice though!

Of course it is Deimos. I don't know what I was thinking about when I wrote the post. Thanks for the correction!
