Sensible progress in the last Sols!

And now, look to this detail of Sol649 Panorama (east direction), I see a macro "mini-crater" in the center and amazing zig-zag holes in the foreground terrain! (I suspect they are correlated each other)

Dilo: I don't know if it's just me, but I think that red line showing the route is a little too hard to see on the overview map. I tried tweaking it and made it yellow and I think it looks better.

Or maybe it's just because I'm color blind blink.gif



Minor nitpick, but just wanted to point it out on your otherwise great route maps! Keep it up! wheel.gif

Isn't this view looking towards the west/southwest ?

Yes, (damn!) I often confuse East with West, can someone explain me why? blink.gif mad.gif tongue.gif
Anyway, some ideas suggestion on these features?

There is a rule of thumb. biggrin.gif

When the Oppy is poking around East Erebus, I identify the East side with high ripples and the West as relatively flat with waves of ripples and South is where there are most light surface. cool.gif

The most probable route that the Oppy will be heading toward south trying to approach to Mogollon's rims. Cross fingers so the Team rovers won't get sucked of tall dunes as the previous route. ohmy.gif

Thanks, Rodolfo.
We are definitely going to South, following outcrop path: here the updated route map, where I corrected also Sol649 position based on orientation respect to the dark Mogollon Patch, highlighted by light-blue arrow in the satellite image.

About "macro-mini crater", discussion is ongoing on another thread, so don't mind...

Is it my imagination or has JPL reverted to an earlier traverse map for Opportunity on its Where Are The Rovers Now? site. It's now at Sol 591 which was posted way back on 22 September. But I thought they'd posted a more recent one showing Opportunity further round Erebus.

It is not just your imagination! I noticed that too huh.gif

Maybe they had a look at Dilos maps and decided to redo their own laugh.gif

Here is one from SOL 624:

It's a possibility. Once newer official maps are posted, we can check again its accuracy agains the ones handled here.

Remember that the discrepancy between the official and Dilo's maps was already noted here.

Maybe this belongs here... another installment in my set of maps from earlier in the mission. This is a 100 by 50 m region around Fram crater. tracks are visible in part of it to show the route in this area. The positional control here is an underlying MOC image.

Ooh! That one worked out particularly well, without the "sunburst" effect some other similar maps sometimes have. Nice blending between local and MOC images.

New Oppy Route Maps from JPL 12/5/05

PIA03616: Partway to 'Victoria'

http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA03616

This image shows the route that NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity had driven through its 659th Martian day, or sol, (Dec. 1, 2005) relative to the potential destination of "Victoria Crater" farther south. The base image is a portion of a mosaic (previously released as PIA07506) combining images from the Mars Observer Camera on NASA's Mars Global Surveyor orbiter, the Thermal Emission Imaging System on NASA's Mars Odyssey orbiter, and Opportunity's own Descent Image Motion Estimation System. The scale bar at lower right is 800 meters (one-half mile).

PIA03609: Opportunity Traverse Map, Sol 656

http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA03609


Annotated Opportunity Traverse Map

This image shows the route that NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity has taken from its landing site inside "Eagle Crater" to its position on its 656th Martian day, or sol, (Nov. 27, 2005) at the edge of "Erebus Crater." The base image is a portion of a mosaic (previously released as PIA07506) combining images from the Mars Observer Camera on NASA's Mars Global Surveyor orbiter, the Thermal Emission Imaging System on NASA's Mars Odyssey orbiter, and Opportunity's own Descent Image Motion Estimation System. The scale bar at lower right is 800 meters (one-half mile). As of sol 656, Opportunity had driven a total of 6,502 meters (4.04 miles).
