This is Jan's panorama from sol 1792 in circular form. We were supposed to have a drive on sol 1792, but it didn't happen, so this is the same location as sol 1789.

Lower temperatures than expected! So the drive was rescheduled for 1793, but the actual drive may be a tad shorter than planned? link

I had a little bit of freedom targetting the left-most image of the upper tier, so I managed to stretch it out beyond our normal 30 degree overlap to try and get all of Mt Sharp in. I think it actually gets the entire horizon without getting cut off anywhere smile.gif

And a magnificent sight it is. Thanks for that smile.gif
Here is a partial L-NavCam pan after the drive on 1794 reported by Phil earlier, assembled in MS ICE, it may assist in confirming the location until a full pan can be assembled. Now I've just got to find the reference for 'Bombazine' smile.gif

Roughly assembled (MS ICE) 10 frame Sol 1795 ChemCam RMI Mosaic
The Mission Update for this sol made a reference to this activity: Acquire a long distance ChemCam RMI mosaic of a contact between bright and dark rocks in part of the ridge.

Curiosity has been zigzagging through an obstacle filled path. A few more stand between it and VRR's top, but hopefully it will reach it next week.

Every once in a while I speculate (for myself) about the upcoming path (and I'm wrong more often then not). This time I'll paste here two alternative routes that seem ok to me - weekend filler wink.gif - and I'm happy to be proved wrong once again.

Looking at Fernando's proposed path and the images of the more direct path I'd have to concur with his choice to save the wheels smile.gif

Attached is the arm weekend workspace for 1796 L-MastCam (MS ICE - sharpened) I dont think JPL published the weekend mission update, but there has been plenty of contact and remote science so far and likely more will take place today (1798)

Thanks, Jan - I like the larger format you are giving us now. Here is the sol 1796 panorama in circular format.
