I'm not really asking a question really - just posing an issue smile.gif




Mars Pathfinder was about 2.2km from 'Big Crater' which was about 1.5km wide.

Now - Victoria is only half that size - but it says something about local topography that we cant see it from where we are now - about 3-4km from it.
