That's a beautiful 360 view, jvandriel. smile.gif

The recent PS update said, "But then we got the hint that this was going to be something a little bit different because the Mini-TES saw a high silica signature that had also been seen in other rocks nearby." Might it be that high concentrations of silica were observed in this area of HP, and that is why they stopped to take a look?

"The general desire is to stay on top of Home Plate, but follow the outcrop exposures around to the portion that everybody really wants to get to -- the far end or southwestern portion of Home Plate," said Yen. That was the comment I found most interesting. That end of HP seems to be overlapped by some younger layers. I can't wait to see them.

(sorry for insistence but, please, remind to use always Right-cam Navigation images, which are less noisy and slightly more sharper, also in this case!).

Hello smile.gif

A few days without posting a picture because a lot of work at school...

So, the Sol 1192 panorama, taken with R2 & R7 filters, in the very late afternoon (no hard shadow, is due to dust who decrease sun lighting, or the sun is under horizon?) :


And a desktop picture :


It's so hard to update himself about rovers status sad.gif

I'm a long-time lurker, and this is my first post.

This image captures perfectly the beautiful synthesis of science and wonder that Spirit and Opportunity have bequeathed to us. I made it my desktop background on my work computer, and played the 'Guess where this is?' game with my colleagues. Their astonishment and awe when they found it was Mars (and not Nevada or Arizona) was wonderful to behold.

Thanks to all at UMSF for bringing a little bit of magic into the world. smile.gif

Beautiful as usual, Ant; first thing Monday morning that's going up as my work desktop, too. Thanks, and HAIL ANTS! smile.gif

It's nice to see new folks joining in the fun here - particularly someone that has come often but never posted.

Your experience has been mine as well... many have asked me what state various Mars photos were taken in, and I've much enjoyed the various reactions when I tell them the photo is a composite of many that were recently taken on Mars - and point them to this website. I know several that are still 'lurkers.' smile.gif

From the most recent images it looks like Spirit has moved off the edge of home plate and is about to explore some more exposed silica?

It looks like you are correct. Must be a change of plan.

That was a surprise, wasn't it? Thanks for the metadata update, Mike. I just can't believe how smoothly I am spinning around in these MMB panoramas. smile.gif I thought I saw several interesting targets in the pancams they imaged. Who would have expected them to return to silica valley. ohmy.gif

I was surprised too when I saw the latest hazcam images.
Let's see if the next status update give us any hint about this decision.
