I wonder if we'll complete the approach this weekend. Anybody know yet?

I'm looking at Comanche as being a preview of Homeplate/FirstBase. It seems to me that the light-colored pavement-forming unit is the same as Homeplate and the reddish Comanche is the same as the cap-forming unit of FirstBase. Remember that one of the maps of the Inner Basin early in the mission had zones of "layered deposits" identified.

We'll know soon.

Yes, that's maybe the most scenic vista I've seen from Spirit (Larry's Lookout came close). Ansel Adams would approve.

Hi... a newbie here...
This is an another amazing image.
The Comanche outcrop rise up in front of us as a giant monument,
to show us via the great explorer Spirit what this terrain had to offer.
In the background, the inspiring El Dorado aka Ultreya.

Wait a minute... what's that over there between the outcrops?!?!?tongue.gif

Does this mean Spirit will be making gunpowder with the RAT?

Seriously, MOST awesome - I even like it better that the top of the hill shot in some ways. Can't wait to get home and try the 3D glasses!

edit- doh - meant to post this over here, sorry. Doesn't make as much sense in this thread.rolleyes.gif

NIX, dilo, mhoward, et alii - great work

Wondrous! Thwack it with the IDD ASAP. I see fine laminations... sedimentary or clastic?

As I've mentioned I think we'll find that many of these "layered outcrops" are on the same page, stratigraphically.

I've taken the Sol 671-675 panorama by mhoward, leveled the horizon and drew what what I presume to be be horizontal lines between outcrops. It seems that these outcrops are at the same elevation. FWIW, I might be in left field or up the creek since it's difficult to eyeball "level".

Wow! Look at the texture of this thing! Almost like a coarse sandstone or something.

Heh...Nix posted a version of the Comanche pic while I was assembling one, and two others....

I ran extra edge sharpening on that pic, so I brought out too much of the @#$@ CCD texture.

The other two pics are from two days ago.

2P187706697EFFAJ2EP2416L2M1_25.jpg is misc rocks in the vicinity of the last stop. It's a band 2 and 5 composite, band 7 was too much missing to fiddle with. Part of the band 5 frame <lower right> was missing, so I copied it from the band 2 frame and matched brightnesses. There's no color there, but it's cosmetically acceptible rather than a giant magenta or other colored patch.

2P187619161EFFAJY0P2575L2M1_257.jpg is the rat-brushed target on the last outcrop. *STRANGE* texture on that rock.

WOW, that is beautiful all around. Great idea for a seperate thread

Marco, please add that frame to the right

Nico, can you please make an anaglyph from Alan/Dilo pan and a bit brighter please

These have a story to tell for presentations. Steve showed a slide of the approach to Comanche at the Hayden this week.

These images will thrill and captivate you.

From the most recent Pancam imagery from Exploratorium, pair of x-eyed stereo pairs of Comanche. One is full-frame, the other is cropped.
