As anticipated, engine stops are more and more frequent (grey areas in the following updated plot):

Not sure about exact on/off times, also because yesterday there was a black-out in the Mystic page connection (maintenance issue?).

Edit: updated plot to Nov.10

Some interesting "simulated true color" images added at the end of October.

Crazy contrast, really. So I guess that begs the question of whether it's simulated but stretched.

Vesta in almost natural colors (filters centered at 440, 650 and 750 nm).
Two basic images:





English captions and 5 other versions are here.
Original raw images are available here.


Here is my colour version of Vesta. Thanks machi for this raw images.

Cranking up the saturation on the last image to help reveal the extent of different color units...

Nice work, Adam! Phil, based on your experience with cranking up the saturation on photos of odd-shaped bodies, do you think that the change in color from north to south is real or does it have more to do with photometric effects?

Hmmm... on any normal world I'd say I was worried about photometric effects, but we know the south polar terrain is different in this case, so I expect it's some combination of both things.

I think tree ornaments made to look like solar system objects would be a winner. I would buy them...
