My go at Rocheport:

Boy do those rocks look scoured clean by the wind over the rim. Here's to the god of cleaning events that she'll give Oppy a boost while we're here. smile.gif

A Navcam view across Endeavour on sol 4653:

Below the horizon (looking north here) there seems to be a large dust-raising wind gust event in progress. Typically, views of this area are much clearer, for instance on sol 4637.

I think you're right, Phil. At first I thought it was just the increase in tau (we've shot up from around 0.8 where we've been for a while to 1.1 on 4653) but that does look like a gust - huge at that distance.

So they were in the same position for a few weeks to get a large color panorama. I assume some of you wizards are working on it? Even a preview would be great.

Another jump in tau, to 1.56, on 4654. The change from yesterday is obvious by comparing these pancam views:
http://merpublic.s3.amazonaws.com/oss/merb...00P2359L5M_.JPG
http://merpublic.s3.amazonaws.com/oss/merb...00P2361L5M_.JPG
They were taken at very similar local times, two sols apart.

Likely we're seeing localized storm activity, not unusual for this time of year.
