The science team has spied an outcrop ahead to perform some brief in situ (contact) science... The plan is to briefly examine this outcrop before moving on.

It looks like Opportunity is auditioning for Mystery Science Theater.

Am I right in thinking they've passed the 30km mark?

Not yet. This last move was quite small, only 0.5m, and there are still 90m to go before reaching the 30km mark.

I'm on the verge of getting a new dog. That sounds like a good name -- Vuggy.

Every image - even if it shows things we've seen before - is a gift, MI, especially now we're a rover down. smile.gif

You got it, Stu. Some pancams returned today from the ejecta field around Skylab:

I'm glad to see this sequence of pancams to finally start coming down. The rock with what appeared to be interesting laminations is a little further to the right of that image, but only 2 of 8 images have come down so far.

I am curious about the 8x1 Skylab panorama. There should be 4 filters (L257R2) times 8 images, or 32 full frame images in all. Why is the pancam site counting only 26?
