Well, with the Spirit Rover doing it's detailed analysis at Low Ridge and slowly building it's McMurdo panorama, what better time to stroll down memory lane and open up the old photo album. So have a look at my favourite top 20 photos returned by the rover and enjoy!

I'm also working on a Best Of Opportunity page, with the idea of making the photo pages a tribute to not only the MER imaging team, but also to the many Mars imaging enthusiasts who have shared their talented, hard work with us.

The link is on my home page.

Stunning gallery. One slight typo - picture three has von Braun in the top left not top right of the picture - at least if my understand that von Braun is Pitchers Mound is correct.

I would add in the Aviation Week cover image produced by Dilo,Doug,Nirgal and Mars Loon.

Thanks for the comments. Yeah, I noticed that typo at work. And I think I have to move the sun to the left in the sol 807 Low Ridge panorama.......Oh, yeah, and I agree about the Aviation Week photo, but I didn't want to get involved in copyright issues.

Ant103, hopefully the Opportunity page will be up in 2 weeks. I first actually want to include a page showing how the sol 813 sunset panorama evolved with each new posting.

Cheers,
Aldo.

Here's my page documenting the sol 813 Sunset panorama as it changed with each contributor's rendering. That truly was a special moment and is a testament to the sense of community that everyone brings here.

aldo,

EXCELLENT idea, very well put together. Gave me goose pimples scrolling down the page seeing the evolution of that image! smile.gif

Makes you stop and think tho, doesn't it, about the wealth of talent here at UMSF. Again, thanks are due to Doug for bringing us all together - and to everyone who continues to make UMSF such a respectful and inspiring place.

Aldo,

Your Sol 813 page is a great idea and an excellent compilation of an inspiring image. I had already added one version to my outreach talks and printed out the full pan for displays, most recently at the NEAF Astronomy Forum on May6/7 where it was admired by several thousand astronomy enthusiasts.

http://www.rocklandastronomy.com/neaf/NEAF_Schedule.html

And thank you for adding our Mars Team "Spirit" Sol 618 pan for Aviation Week to your top 20 images (ps: please check spelling of Doug's name in your caption). For displays, Sol 618 and Sol 813 make a great combo, looking out and looking back.
