hazard avoidance cameras and a mosaic of images using the navigation
camera. The following morning, Spirit monitored dust on the panoramic
camera mast assembly and completed a systematic ground survey and a
survey of rock clasts with the panoramic camera.
Sol 1220: Spirit acquired full-color images of the work area reachable
by the robotic arm using all 13 filters of the panoramic camera and
watched for morning dust devils. The rover also acquired full-color
images using all 13 filters of the panoramic camera of targets known as
"Melba Alspaugh," "Helen St. Aubin," and "Ruth Lessing." The rover
acquired data using the miniature thermal emission spectrometer from
targets known as "Melba Alspaugh2," "Betty Whiting2," "Joan Chiancola,"
and "Helen St. Aubin2." Spirit watched for dust devils, surveyed a
