There have been, as far as I can find, 8 HiRISE obs of PHX released to the HiRISE website at full res (i.e. not 2x2 binned)

Of those, 5 are really quite good, 3 are not so great.

So I've overlaid the interesting parts to see any changes. The parachute folds over a bit at some point between Aug 23rd and Sept 19th - other than that, nothing really to see.

The different observing angles are very very obvious when you look at the back-shell on its side. Have a go at convincing yourself you can see changed in the arm work-volume. I couldn't quite see anything.

It seems to me that the chute is still attached to the backshell, it is, isn't it?

Thanks for posting those Doug, and thanks also Zvezdichko for that interesting link. I hope we can get another photo shoot in before darkness arrives.
