This Sol 1925 MAHLI seems to open an option for varve chronology.

The thing I find intriguing is that there does not seem to be any indication of a freeze - thaw cycle.

Looks like the outstanding images for the L-MastCam 1903 pan are finally down. Looking forward to see what the image wizards can do with them smile.gif

I seem to recall Phil predicting some interesting terrain on the other side of the ridge based on the satellite images. Looking at this roughly assembled 1928 partial L-NavCam pan I'd have to say 'Good call Phil' smile.gif

It's got the usual stitching errors for MS ICE, but it may help get a rough fix of drive direction etc until the remainder of the images come down and they can be properly assembled. Feel free to delete once the proper version gets posted.

When I saw the pictures taken by the Curiosity rover on Sol 1903 which came online last week, I told myself "WOW !", because they reminded me the early morning view taken by the Viking 1 lander in 1976, the famous one with the backlit dunes...
Although the Curiosity pictures were shot in colour and are distributed in panchromatic 'raw' format, I think that the most artistic view is to leave them in black and white, because processing them to colour would erase some of the exquisite details inside a quasi-uniform yellowish-brown.
So, I decided to process the pictures as if they were taken in a panchromatic format.
Here is the resulting panorama from Curiosity, a truly spectacular one that is presented alongside the Viking lander historic view !
Enjoy it ...and also as a tribute to the Curiosity/MSSS team and the past Viking Lander Imaging Team smile.gif smile.gif smile.gif

(P.S. : Please, note that the distortions inside the Viking and Curiosity views are not fully corrected : the horizon was not straightened)

Nicely done Olivier! It really puts into perspective the dramatic landscape in which Curiosity is roving smile.gif

Thanks Olivier wink.gif

Sol 1930 complete navcam pan. There is a gigantic gap behind Vera Rubin ridge, some deep valley.

The preliminary name of this valley seems to be Phyllosilicate Trough (PT), and the contact between Vera Rubin Ridge and PT seems to be of particular interest, in order to help select the most likely formation option for Vera Rubin Ridge.

There is a nice view of the area ahead about 1 minute into this video when we clear the ridge...
