Another quick one tonight...

Spirit's on the move. We've done a nice little rotation to the right, and now we've got a bunch of new stuff within reach of the arm. We'll do our business here, and then it's going to be time to do some real driving. Everybody is really itching to start covering some ground again.

And on the other side of the planet Opportunity is on the move too. The pictures of the eastern of Cape Verde were specacular, and finished up our business at Cape St. Mary. We just did a 43-meter drive to the northeast, and there'll be more driving in the coming week... though it may be slowed down a little by a checkout of more of our new software. Once that software check is out of the way, our next target will be the southwestern side of a really big alcove that we've named Bottomless Bay, or Bahia sin Fondo. It's going to be like this for awhile, driving from one lookout on the rim of Victoria to the next, taking spectacular Pancam images of cliff faces.

One more thing: Keep your eyes peeled for some new images of both rover landing sites from our friends on the MRO HiRISE team. That's one heck of a camera they've got, and we're expecting some pretty spectacular new images soon.

Bahia sin Fondo, today's San Matias Gulf, where some say the Grail lays.

Another new MUBSS which talks about the recent Spirit MI's and future target plans, and Opportunity making it to Bottomless Bay and why they've not had the arm out much.
