...the west rim - the actual bit we are heading for.
Sorry to be putting corrections on top of corrections, but I don't believe we've heard anything official about our first destination at Endeavour. The west rim is certainly the most obvious guess, but we've had mention of rumours otherwise. In reality, perhaps a decision may not be made for some time.
Also, I was skeptical that we couldn't see the new piece of the west rim from Victoria, especially when we had those great views around sol 950. Looking again, I'm pretty sure it is visible, for example in this frame on the far right horizon:
The shape looks a bit different now, but then the parallax is greatest for this closest bit of rim. The azimuth is about right.
Anyway, I agree with an earlier post, that there seems to be something hard-wired in us to want to squint and try to see what's coming up on the horizon. I can't wait to see more and more appear...
