Don't apologise Paolo, we're all thrilled you're here. And if you want to drive over *there* feel free, I'd love a look at those hills close-up! wink.gif

It's definitely easy to loose track of azimuth in a navcam pan presented at such a small scale!

Here's a comparison with a pan from Greeley so we can see how Tribulation is just barely obstructed by Morris Hill now:

I'd be utterly confused as to rover positioning without the ongoing work by UMSF image wizards, so cheers to all, looking forward to the upcoming drives smile.gif

Some serious driving is in the works. By noon (PDT) on Sunday we should know if we got it all in. Rolling, rolling, rolling... wheel.gif wheel.gif wheel.gif

I'm all right but a bit too busy with MSL to enjoy driving Oppy. My next shift is on June 6th!

Where's the "Like" button? laugh.gif

I measured about 50m NNE and it's confirmed by the pancam database. Route map update in a minute.

Sol 2965 was only 50.5 meters, it was cut short because we hit the lower limit for northerly tilt. This was one of the expected possible result, so today we have nominal F/R HAZ.

50 meters sounds pretty good to me! Azimuth of the drive was about 18 from north according to the metadata.

Thanks for the map update, Tesh. I was pointed completely upside down with my previous question. I am not unfamiliar with such revelations here on our home planet smile.gif
