Agreed. Dynamite interviews, Stu; provided a great deal of insight into Oppy's present findings & activities!

Is that the 'dagger' in view now, two thirds of the way across this image? http://qt.exploratorium.edu/mars/opportuni...PHP1604R0M1.JPG

Just one more for tonight: interesting rock layers, or veins, that stick out in this crop from Sol 2780 that recently came down:

And lots of other new and strange looking rocks here at the top of Cape York. The RAT is gnashing its teeth!

May be the "dagger". See Tesheiner's post #473:

Yep, that looks pretty Daggerish, or at least Daggeresque, to me...

( Anyone else feel a bit dizzy looking at that..? blink.gif )

Closer to viewing it, but not quite.

Sol 2779 Navcam pan. We can clearly see the contour of the "dagger" here.

That's what I'm taking to be It, yep. Clearer on my stretch...

Edit: hmmmm. Not so sure now after taking a look on Google Earth... I think maybe the Dagger is still round the bend a bit...

I'm quite sure I see the 'lobe' of dark material extending beyond the contours of Cape York.. and the dagger is in sight partially, but it's a shallow feature seen at a very low angle from here... like Tesheiner's post...

I think we are seeing the Dagger, but heavily foreshortened since CY is so flat for the most part. Here are some measurements to back that up. I've identified a little knob in both orbital and navcam views (indicated with a white arrow in both). (The navcam is a stack of L/R to improve S/N.) The far side of the "mouth" of the Dagger should be 8 degrees to the right of that knob. We can now see plenty more than that. So it looks like the little dark notch in Stu's stretch is the Dagger.
