Seeing those views of Homeplate, I can't help thinking that we waited so long to get to the summit, now I can't wait for us to get on the road again to these exceptional new places. I'm sure the rover team must be falling all over themselves wrestling with the possibilities of what to do next!

Note that with long-base-line stereo images from the hilltop, we can SEE WHERE WE'RE GOING!.... rather than mostly guess, as we did on the climb. and going DOWNHILL will help extravagently.. just as long as we don'g to downhill "oops"...

thump.
bump!
Crunch!
TINKLE!

Homeplate as seen by pancam L2!

(L5 and L6 are available too)

Sorry to repost the whole image, doug can you resize it down please.

It looks to me like the top of that little knoll to the right of home plate is made of the same stuff as home plate itself. it looks like it might be the same layer. there is another fragment of similar looking material above and to the left of home plate. Perhaps it is a harder layer, any thoughts?

Nope sad.gif

One downside of invision is that you can make an image smaller. I may see if V2.1 allows it - as it would be nice to have them at 512 x 512 instead.

The top of the knob to the right of homeplate is very red, while homeplate, especially near it's outer edge is bright, but decidedly not red. There are some very sharp outcrops to the 10:00 clock angle position <upper left> from homeplate. They're very red, too, but just to the left of them are some bright but less-red materials, rather like homeplate's color.

A simple L256 of a Pancam tricolor set of Homeplate, in glorious GeoColor.

Note that Homeplate is only one exposure of what has been termed the "Layered Unit" in the southern basin and the early interpretation of the "cindercone" is that it a simply a resistant caprock over a darker unit. Interesting weathering/erosion processes here.

Lovely area!

Good tweek.. that looks reasonably close to "real" color.

I wish I had access to serious NASA/USGS image processing software (I probably actually do, but no time to deal with learning modern stuff)... I was once able to extract some pretty spectacular stuff out of Viking imagery with "principal components analysis". The color distribution is dominated by red/blue color variations, but there's much more in this data, though at much lower spectral contrast. Be a help to pick out different geologic units if I had it.

Hopefully some of the flood of data can be turned into super-res imagery of Home Plate and environs... ...it certainly looks like cap rock to me (at present!).

Looking at the latest pancam images I could see one thing, the terrain closer to Ultreya is really getting darker and darker, and then I look closer and...

Is it a rock on the hill?
Or...Is it the first glimpse of Ultreya?... blink.gif

What a great time!!! smile.gif I'm wandering around in a "realtime" Mars exhibition...

Can you imagine there sit some of the MER team in their room and behind runs a computer with Unmanned Spaceflight.com, then suddenly someone call "hey a next image coming in" after that the answer "copy that, take it on the left screen"... cool.gif biggrin.gif

Doug, thats a beauty again! smile.gif

I would love to see a Photoshop of a ocean on the lower plains to get a feel for what this area looked like millions of years ago. smile.gif
