On April 1st a 'small dust cleaning event' improved the dust factor a tiny bit. Hope that wasn't an April Fool's Joke smile.gif

Hmmmm. Oppy taking lots of super resolution images of a feature on the NE edge of Cape York called "Whim Creek"...

Wondering... Is that our beloved "Notch"/"Wedge"/"Wound"..? And does this mean Oppy will be heading down to take a look at while she hunts for a larger version of Homestake when she finally rolls down from Greeley Haven..?

Good catch, Stu! I've marked the "inland" part of the dagger with a black line, and the "outflow" part in white:

I hope this means a visit. Remember a recent update where they said they may go either to the east or west side of CY to look for more veins...

I agree with you Stu and Fred...

... searches for "Whim Creek" all seem to point to a copper mine and basaltic flow region in Western Australia

Been doing a bit of virtual hill wandering thanks to James' and Fred's cartography, and it turns out that that ridge... thing... way up on the hillside there is actually a fascinating place...

Looks like a real geological playground... but 4km away from where we are now... and uphill...

Yep, my eye's been drawn to that ridge for quite a while, too. Our best view of it so far was the superres from 2720 - here's the full-res tiff: http://pancam.astro.cornell.edu/pancam_ins...superres_4x.tif

BTW, that ridge is on the way to Cape Tribulation proper, which appears to have the largest exposures of clays, so depending on our precise route we may pass close to that ridge...

In France, it is dubbed "the Dagger"...

Usually these don't render well, but this one did. Here's a small version (original was too large to upload to UMSF, but can be viewed here).

That's quite nice. Thanks for posting a link to that site.

I see what you mean about some image pairs not rendering well. I wonder what causes some to work nicely and other not.
