Conjunction is over, so it is probably a good time to start a new thread.

I just saw this update from Scott via Twitter

QUOTE ('marsroverdriver')
Out of solar conjunction & planning to drive Spirit again. Woo-hoo! Come on, little hill-climber, you can do it!

While still waiting for new Whr figures, just one remark for those comparing the two navcams I posted before. The idea was to have a reference picture together with the latest image to be sure what we were seeing was real and not an image artifact. If anybody wants to make comparisions about dust levels on them, remember that the first picture was taken about one year ago and not last week. wink.gif
