Ant103

that is better.
Further I have great respect for you and the other stitchers who stitch
together the best estimated real colour panoramas.
I can not do that.

I too applaud you dedicated souls for producing this Greeley Masterpiece, fitting of Oppy's renaissance ...

I've only just started working on my version of the Greeley Pan, but to join the party I thought I'd share an initial low res image straight from my automated process before I've done any fiddling.

Beautiful pans, guys!

Navcam caught some clouds drifting by on 2847 - these should be more common as we approach winter:

Low sun pano of the late afternoon, Sol 2840.

Pano too big to post the direct link, so redirection to various resolutions.


Nice catch Fred !

More late afternoon frames coming down. In this one, we might be seeing the shadow of Oppy, or perhaps the outcrop she's on, arrowed here:

What suggests this to me is that, if you look closely, you can see what seems to be an "opposition surge" or "Heiligenschein" centred around what could be Oppy. I'd need to check the geometry to be sure.

Great minds think alike, Fred (not suggesting I am a great mind, it's just a saying, you know...)

Just been working on a colour version of that, and yep, I think that's Oppy... what an amazing image...

Good grief - just when I thought it was safe to turn the machine off and go to bed . .

That's a classic. One for the headlines and the history books.

Well taken rover team and well spotted gentlemen.

Wonderful! By the way, in upper right of the sequence one of Mars' moon is tracking across the sky. Or a star?

Eyeballing it in MMB, the shadow is at 114 degrees from north, and the sun is going down around -66 degrees from north. That adds up to 180...

Cool.

I'm sure others will do better, but here's my version.

Thanks for checking that! Very cool indeed. And I can't wait for the full mosaics with Oppy's deck in the foreground...
Edit: done before I finished my post! You can see that the shadow lines in the foreground converge to Oppy's distant shadow - just beautiful!

Good catch! Those shots were taken about half an hour before sunset, so it can't be a star or planet. I'd be surprized if Phobos would be that obvious in a downsampled navcam through clouds and in daylight. And it would be extremely lucky to catch a glint of sunlight off a satellite. Can anyone check the azimuth of those navcams? That could rule out Phobos.

I kind of like this Instagram-med version for dramatic effect.

... one more from the sunset campaign on SOL 2847...
L257 always makes the 'blue target' pink! (any fixes out there?)

fred: I think that shadow down range is the sundial, the mast shadow is just coming into view on the far right.

EDIT
or the 'unfolding cleat' to the RIGHT of the sundial
(the shadow is the back deck with right of sundial 'cleat' at the apex)
Attached Image


EDIT
thanks Doug (for the next post)

Yeah - go up there and replace the blue pigment with one that isn't massively nIR bright. That blue pigment is much much brighter in L2 than it is in L6 or 7.

L257 is almost nIR, G, B. Not RGB
