Looks like within a week the rover should be at or past Beagle. Hopefully, the dark layer around Victoria is easily negotiated by Opportunity. If it is then I'm guessing around the end of August Oppy will be at the rim.

I'll speculate that the drivers will be nervous about the sandpile ahead of Oppy and take a detour...

Yep. Well, at least some of us are nervous. cool.gif I am beginning to suspect that they drove to this point intentionally. It seems to be the end of the maze in some ways. A turn to the left or right seems a logical thing to do. It doesn't appear that we'll see a move on 872.

I too was concerned about the mound ahead, but the drivers may have something else in mind as they are deliberately driving straight at it, according to Tesh's map. Since recent rear Hazcams show good traction over the last dune crest, maybe they are confident about ground conditions and plan to surmount the mound as a viewpoint?
We'll see....

This is almost more drama than "who shot JR". We'll wait, we'll see.

Attached is a clip from MOC image R1500822, enhanced to bring out low-contrast detail and presented in .PNG format so there isn't JPEG artifacting. For general membership use to see what's ahead on the ejecta apron. The solar azimuth was 9.5 deg, the solar altitude was 64.9 degrees.

The 873 navcams will be centered on 126 degrees, which is a bit east of the 871 set, but none of the new images are down yet. It will be interesting to see where the drive direction pancams are located. We may get pancams of Beagle and the Beacon shortly. smile.gif
