The cleft area seems to have a fibrous inclusion.

Whoa! Look at that crumbling v-notch. If it was a little larger and a thing like that could become a serious wheel trap.

Here is a quick comparison of the sundial from Sol 55 to Sol 2718 (7+ yrs)
Both are from raw images and were identically processed.
The differences are sun angle (brightness), dust on the target, and probably the camera.
(L4,5,6 filters only)

How did that VIMS composite of Titan (e.g. http://www.uidaho.edu/sci/physics/news/topfeatures/titan ) get there?! smile.gif

Here is an x-eyed stereo view of site Mpangeni, an L346 and R721 image.

Note the cleft in the lower left of the site apparently with active precipitation within the fracture.

Heck yeah!

We're perched about 5 meters away from a very nice batch of northerly tilts. I spy a Winter Haven!

Unfortunately we're squeezed by late morning/early afternoon comm passes -- tighter than usual this week. Very little drive time, even though the energy is plenty high for it. Might take a few sols.

And still a dusty LowGain antenna. Cf: this post: http://www.unmannedspaceflight.com/index.p...&pid=180403

They weren't kidding about travelling. Even with the smattering of Navcam views the comm passes allow these are tantalizing glimpses of CY morphology. Even the FHazcam images are great boot-scuffs of the surface.

Or, as The Great One said, "How sweet it is..."

Here's the 3x1 navcam mosaic. Today's imaging plan includes the remaining 7 pictures so a whole 360 panorama should be available soon.

And a wonderful Pancam sequence of a new site, "Transvaal". Such great tonal range with fine gradation between colors, and such a texture of the surface.

Wow. We can now see the Cyclops crater from the navcam.

So, does that mean the tau has become better?
