On a roll…

On a roll…
(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

Apologies *again* for lack of updates recently, but my recent (second) knee operation didn’t go quite as planned so I’ve been cutting down on writing for a while and just taking it easy. Much better now, and so it’s catch-up time.
First, a reminder – as if anyone reading this needs reminding! – of how awaseome Opportunity is…


Look at that… Sol 5,098 of her 90 day mission…! What a fantastic achievement, and what an amazing team of people behind her, keeping her going.
Ok, in no particulkar order, here are some newly-processed images for you to (hopefully) enjoy…

There you can see images Oppy took of Mars’ largest moon, Phobos, passing in front of the Sun…

I love seeing Oppy’s tracks criss-crossing the surface. After all, she’s a rover, she was designed and built to rove about..!

That’s a close-up of the surface of one of the rocks Oppy has been studying. It’s a mosaic of three seperate images, stitched together and then processed to bring out details…

More images soon…
