Using that BnW 20x20metre image they released of Oppy in its current 'situation' - and the colour self portrait from 100 sols ago or so... I made a preview of what Oppy might look like today to HiRise..



Cool eh smile.gif I've blown it up 500% from being at 33cm/pixel - but thats what the resolution is per blown-up-pixel...33cm a go.

As a comparison - here is a simulated CPROTO image from MGS - at 1.5m/pixel horez, and 0.5m/pixel down track..



A WORLD of difference smile.gif

Hey doug,
Can you try projecting a late-afternoon shadow onto that photo? For example, one made when the shadow is about 3-4 times as long as MER? I bet that's what they're going to show today...

Nope, what you want to see is right here:

The rover is easily spotted, as are the shadow of its camera mast and the tracks the rover has made recently.
