And here is the (quite substantial) Feb 2nd webinar the article mentions, with updates from the UAE panel of experts.

...and a parallel article from LASP with some helpful graphics.

Congratulations to the Hope team! Looking forward to many years of exploration and discovery. smile.gif

Topic title changed; this will be the main mission coverage thread. Please minimize creation of additional threads unless and until major events and/or findings warrant same (i.e., things like news stories don't need their own discussion thread.) Thanks!

Word is we should get a first image next week.

من ارتفاع ٢٥ ألف كم عن سطح الكوكب الأحمر .. أول صورة للمريخ بأول مسبار عربي في التاريخ"

Very beautiful!!!

The Emirates Mars Mission website is now posting the pictures from Hope (Al Amal), including an annotated version of the image above.

Phil Stooke
This is the first image in full resolution from that website. Sincere thanks to the mission team for making this available. Check out the beautiful clouds in Valles Marineris. I have brightened the terminator area to bring out more detail. There are some faint features well beyond the terminator which might be high clouds, but also possibly artifacts of the camera or processing. If they don't appear in later images they may indeed be clouds.

The shading around the summit of Olympus Mons looks like a love heart. Nice pics.

The Hope image is from February 2021.
The other image you linked to is not a single image, it is a mosaic of Viking images with synthetic color (because the Viking orbiters did not have modern color capabilities), rendered onto a sphere.

Picture taken by Hope on 27 February 2021. The image is centered on the south-east side of Isidis Planitia. We see Elysium Mons near the limb.

Phil Stooke
Very nice, Thomas. You have done some very nice work with the Hope images. I always like to stretch the contrast at the terminator to see what might be found, and here we see some nice pre-dawn clouds north of Jezero crater.

Thanks Phil, and really nice contrasted version! Is Jezero the crater just near the terminator?
Phil Stooke
I think that visible crater is Peridier, which can be found on this map:

https://planetarynames.wr.usgs.gov/images/mc13_2014.pdf

Jezero would be right on the terminator and further south.

A crescent Mars imaged by Hope on 28 February 2021. We see Elysium Mons, Gale crater and even Mount Sharp!
