I wonder if it would be possible to add a mars clock to this forum? At the top of the page so it's always visible. smile.gif

Not easily ohmy.gif Without just stealing the flash one at JPL's site.

that assumes that Vostok is a crater, some say it may be a mound ... :>

If it was a mound of any height - we WOULD have seen it by now smile.gif

imho - it's a very very erroded crater, much more so than eagle/fram etc - i.e. pre hydrological activity - it'll just be exactly what it appears on the orbital images - a ring of exposed rock perhaps a few CM above the surrounding area with no inner 'dip' or dunes

Well, it must be a really low mound, otherwise it should be visible by now. dry.gif

Edit : it appears Doug types faster biggrin.gif

According to Pando's last Opportunity routemap (link: Pando's RouteMap) and JPL's sol 387 Pan (link: Pan sol 387), Vostok should be seen on that sol 387 Navcam picture: 1N162546176EFF4700P0680L0M1.JPG
(on the left part of the horizon, and roughly 400m far). Thus in fact "it must been a really low mount", as you wrote Djellison and TheChemist...

Astrobio has a nice javascript Mars clock. Just add this to the page source:

To be honest - it'd piss me off smile.gif If I want to know the time on mars, I load up Mars24 biggrin.gif Great though the Invision board is -it's cluttered and noisey enough already. It'd be breaking my own rule about excessive signatures ( I HATE signatures that go on and on about peoples PC specification WHY DO I CARE!! )

That's three minutes ahead of the JPL clock - what's with that? cool.gif Who's right?

I think MMB's is just a couple seconds off Mars24's. I'm not exactly sure why the difference from Mars24, possible a rounding error. Couple seconds off was close enough for my purposes. wink.gif

QTVR of the 'Naturaliste' Crater, Sol 387, panorama here: "site_A47_cyl-med.mov"

Just a quickie, but I like the "being there" feel...

Looks like the "vessels of discovery" naming meme still applies...though I don't remember any "Voyages of the Naturaliste," Google again saves the day!

Looking all around Naturalist QTVR Pan; damnation, where is Vostok? Thanks, Lyford.

You can get a non-Flash (but javascript) html Mars clock at:
http://www.lpl.arizona.edu/~lemmon/mars/MERClocks/mera.html
http://www.lpl.arizona.edu/~lemmon/mars/MERClocks/merb.html
http://www.lpl.arizona.edu/~lemmon/mars/MERClocks.zip

It is as accurate as the UTC clock of the computer it is run on, or
to within a couple seconds for a time-synched computer. It can be
put in another web page or set as a desktop feature (at least for
windows, haven't tried elsewhere).

I think they'll take one look at Vostok and drive right on by lol .... I still don't believe the white annulus visible from MOC images is bedrock... I think it's lighter coloured dust that's accumulated around the object.... all the craters show this when seen from orbit.
