Oppy seems to have stopped to catch her breath at Turkey Haven, and the latest Hazcams show she is preparing to spend some time studying the rocks there, so this seems like a good time to start a new topic.

If you have any images/observations to share relating to Oppy's approach to Turkey Haven, please post them in the previous thread.

To start us going, here's my take on Oppy's view of Turkey Haven - not suggesting the colours are particularly realistic, but they do show, I think, the great variety of tones and hues visible on the rocks at this intriguing place...

This image shows perfectly that we've made it to the ridge of CY:

It also shows nicely that CY is basically a "shelf" jutting out into Endeavour, as we'd said a long time ago. We've been travelling north up the flat part of the shelf. I think this is the first time we can clearly see the full relief of CY - it does jut out quite a ways from the average slope into Endeavour.

That's part of a 3x1 navcam mosaic (navcam_3x1_az_126_3_bpp) shot yestersol. Expect another 7x1 mosaic shot today so we will finally (probably) have a whole 360deg. view. cool.gif

Opportunity's position on sol 2781. This view is cobbled together from two locations over three sols.

UnbeLEEvable timing!!! I was just about to post a sharpened-up anaglyph I've made of part of Turkey Haven, about to invite everyone to look at the beautiful, fragile-looking rock sculptures at the bottom left... then you go and show that Oppy has driven right over them!!!

It appears that our "holiday" science stop will be at site T2_Haven, so here is an L257 of that site.

The mind clicks and whirrs and theorizes and this area will prove to be unimaginably complex.

Best colour view I can manage...

You're right Bill... fascinating place... Love how lots of the rocks appear to have a dark coating on them on their tops and sides, yet the bases look cleaner...

Wow, I thought this new outcrop was much larger in size! Got fooled again. Nothing like having Oppy in the picture to put things into perspective.

I'm thinking it's the other way around - usually the lighter areas are dust, which piles up around the bases of the rocks, while the parts more exposed to the wind stay cleaner.

Remarkable. Looks a bit like a minaturized version of the Belt formation in Montana.

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

Yeah, makes sense. I should have known that. rolleyes.gif

I was mostly trying to capture the scenic view with that last one. Here's a more basic view showing the relative size of the outcrop. This view faces south and somewhat down (-17 degrees elevation), and you can see the area Pancam has covered so far.

P.S. I'm not sure what the northward tilt is right now, but I'm pretty sure it's over 10 degrees, maybe quite a bit over that I'm seeing something between 9.9 and 12 degrees, maybe.

Just one more. Facing south. The rover position is probably off just a little bit.
