Tesheiner, I read about the 10K mark, and was hoping that you had updated the route map to show the excursion that put us over the mark -- and you didn't disappoint!

By the way, I'm thinking that Oppy's getting ready to head back to Duck Bay, which looks like the past entry path, plus nice vertical cliffs to examine on the way in . . .

Tesheiner: "...a bit sparse..." laugh.gif That is such a nicely diplomatic way to say it. There are so many fascinating images waiting in the queue, especially pancams, that I am dying to see. Among those are the Ralls of Madrid and Alava, and...Oh heck, I'll just continue to wait unless someone has a better suggestion. I think praising the 1100th sol is a good reason to celebrate. smile.gif

... Lot of dark sand too, with some tiny dark "rays" that seams to feed it from above.
That has really fascinated me since it was first imaged from the other side of the bay. It appears to be a patch of dark material eroding from a layer between the ejecta and the "relatively intact bedrock."

It truly reminds me in many ways of the dark material we previously discussed in the Halfpipe formation topic. If that stuff really is some kind of patchy residual soil from an earlier period of erosion, it may not be so surprising to discover another patch of it here.

Exactly. Here below is a list of images/mosaics on the queue.

01096::p2373::10::16::0::0::16::2::34::pancam_cape_good_hope_longbaseline_L257R2
01096::p2374::10::8::0::0::8::2::18::pancam_dunes_2x1_L257R2
01097::p2375::10::2::0::0::2::1::5::pancam_dunes_2x1_L2
Attached Image

01097::p2376::10::4::0::0::4::1::9::pancam_cape_good_hope_longbaseline_L2
Attached Image

01097::p2579::17::13::13::0::0::2::28::pancam_madrid_L234567Rall
01097::p2580::17::13::13::0::0::2::28::pancam_alava_L234567Rall

Given that the plan for sol 1099 was almost all untargeted imaging I thought we would finally see those past sols mosaics downlinked at full resolution, not only via the thumbnails, but it wasn't the case. We'll have to wait and, hope I'm wrong, probably it won't be today because sol 1100 imaging plan is drive-related and that takes priority over other data.

PS: For those who haven't seen it, those "pancam_dunes_2x1" mosaics point to the dark dunes at the base of capes D1-D5.
