So much to see in these latest navcams. Here's an example of a definite dark feature on the horizon, in front of (part of??) Iazu Crater (lighter band above horizon):

I think this is what you were refering to recently, Ustrax? My kingdom for a pancam view... pancam.gif laugh.gif

Yes, no current pancams in that direction so far, which should roughly be southwestern between 210° to 235° (or -150 to -125 in the PDTInterface) for any signs of Bopulu from the location of Concepción (as measured on your maps).

There are new pancams now, but only downsampled EDRs and nothing obvious.

Center of the image ~213°: https://qt.exploratorium.edu/mars/opportuni...66P2277L1M1.JPG

~225°: https://qt.exploratorium.edu/mars/opportuni...66P2277L1M1.JPG

~238°: https://qt.exploratorium.edu/mars/opportuni...66P2277L1M1.JPG

Also for that isolated hill southward.

Comment and query copied from the other thread:

I note that the nearest Endeavour 'rim' hills actually rise from some way down inside the hole so we won't see their feet till we're almost there. In the Endeavour Crater thread there was a very nice HRSC 3D view of Endeavour which somebody annotated with elevations. I wanted to look at that again but the HRSC links no longer work for me. Can anybody help with that?

Exactly Fred! Thanks. Looks like a real feature but I am having some hard time figuring out what it may be comparing with satellite imagery...
This is definitely my kind of thread...bring those pancams and let us find some abysses and stuff! biggrin.gif

No doubt at all about which is rear or far rim...
Edit: And, at least for me, this is already a HOAV!

I knew there had to be a significant up-side to chronic insomnia!!! ohmy.gif Beauty & great scientific treasures now in sight, and we few are among the first to ever see such a scene on this world. In the next hours, possibly millions of others will join us.

... and if you stretch the horizon until it begs for mercy you can see just how hilly it is...

Thanks for those first mosaics Stu. A great moment - we are truly blessed.

Are we still happy with these identifications?

Is that big dark peak right of centre (of Endeavour) really on the far rim, and if so what's that beyond it?

Takes me back to Spirit's first winter and watching Gusev crater's walls slowly appear as the dust levels dropped.

Amazingly Oppy is only about 16% closer to the big hills on the near side than it was back in Duck Bay! Once they finish heading south and start moving due east the view should improve very quickly. At mini Endurance the distance between Oppy and the big near side hills will be almost exactly half of what it was during autumn 2006.

Yes, I'm still happy with that.

I think you might be confused as to which peak is which. (I'm working on the pan and a feature identification plot). 'Cook' the big hill in the middle of the far rim from our POV is the peak on the far left of the images posted, nothing can be seen beyond it. In the middle, is part of the near rim where we are headed with Izau behind it.

Indeed! Thanks. I can't wait to see the full picture you're working on.

A frame showing the centre of Concepcion is missing a colour filter or something, leaving it nastily discoloured. I won't claim to speak for him of course, but I would guess that what he posted is the finished project. (any further to the right and it gets pretty terrible)
