Thanks, Stu. If you like that one, you'll love Ian's mosaic from the same encounter as well. Shows the entire south polar region whereas in my single frame composite it was out of the frame...

Well-deserved congrats, and a Q: in these pics, it looks like some of those ridges in the center of the image are raised, but that couldn't be true, could it? I have this problem all the time looking at images of craters, wonder if there's a 'smarter' way to perceive them?

Rearrange the lighting in your room so it's coming from roughly the same direction as the illumination in the image you're viewing. This helps the brain to make the right assumption.

However those Saturn-lit features in the center of the disk *are* raised- they really are ridges. Bob Pappalardo et al. have suggested that they result from thrust faulting.

Congratulations to Ian for his glorious animation of Lutetia, which is today's APOD
(but for unknown reason is my name under it, I suppose, that this error is based on changing names mentioned in Emily's blog article).

Simply magnificent - congrats to Ian (and machi!) who are both unfailingly reliable in terms of turning raw data into fantastic images/movies for our delectation within 48 hours of any significant encounter - thanks both!

A number of news sites picked up my version of the first MSL horizon navcams yesterday. That I know of:

MSNBC

New Scientist (picture of the day)

Le Figaro (4th image in the album) (was on front page of website for a while)

MSNBC article featuring EdTruthan, me and an UMSF shout out in general, currently has a prominant link on the MSNBC homepage. Hits on my site have gone through the roof. smile.gif

Looking to educational pages in the MSL site, I just discovered they used our "Clouds and Sand on the Horizon of Mars" mosaic (APOD 2006 October 17) as backgroung image of "Imagine Mars" gallery: http://imaginemars.jpl.nasa.gov/
Happy to see it but I cannot see any credit! sad.gif

PS: MSNBC article featuring Ken/mine panoramas from NavCam.

Blimey, if I'd known my image was going up on APOD today I would have cleaned up the colour bleed around the limb! ohmy.gif
