But I wouldn't mind watching some Martian sunsets.

I often feel like I don't watch as many as I should here on Earth.

I have seen some, but it doesn't look as good as on Earth.

Agreed. Without the clouds and the thicker atmosphere refracting the sunlight and creating all the nice colors, it's pretty dull.

Even though Mars’ atmosphere is less than one-hundredth as dense as Earth’s, the behavior of winds and clouds can be relatively similar on both planets.

Surely these ones would have been pretty at sunset.

Just tell me, how fascinating those sky images are? Absolutely feeling at home, stunning...
I bet NASA put some color adjustment not to put us into shock))LOL, looks like Ontario sunset on pic 1.

Looks like a big tack in the middle in front of Rover also, so that is what happens to the tires!

While looking for better pics of the harpoon i found this image mars.jpl.nasa.gov... top right corner it looks awfully geometric ,artificial?
Hope nasa does not avoid.
Still looking for better pics of the rod.


The whole area looks like ruins I wonder about size of that area.

Dont you open that trap door curio mars.jpl.nasa.gov...


EEhh tried funbox's instructions for photo edit...first try, it is really bad. My enlarged part shows less of what I want to emphasize than the original! Anyway nothing mind boggling just practice run.

was checking the front nav's earlier , is the rover going back on itself?

Yes.


On Tuesday, Feb. 18, the rover covered 329 feet (100.3 meters), the mission's first long trek that used reverse driving and its farthest one-day advance of any kind in more than three months.

The reverse drive validated feasibility of a technique developed with testing on Earth to lessen damage to Curiosity's wheels when driving over terrain studded with sharp rocks.
However, Tuesday's drive took the rover over more benign ground.

"We wanted to have backwards driving in our validated toolkit because there will be parts of our route that will be more challenging," said Curiosity Project Manager Jim Erickson of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif.

Yes, and it closed on a poem, which was a fitting close. It had almost lost it all, and what wasn't there came back here (I'd been gone for awhile. I guess I consider this my home thread). I answered a poem with a poem, and that's the last I heard. It could have used a little more, like ArMap's gif which showed the object from some new perspectives, and the new find of the snaky rock to the right of Rocky Raccon, but then those appeared here, and reverted back to where Perry was born.

For me the most interesting thing on that thread was that there were threads on the same picture, and it was said to be one of the most analyzed pictures from Mars - a picture from Spirit analyzed by people searching for Mars anomalies - and one thread on ATS went on for 21 pages (the other for three), with the picture being analyzed north, south, and sideways, everything in it poked and measured and circled in red or giffed. And nobody found your little creature. You were the first to report it, as far as I could find.

Good eye.

They say a sunset on Earth is worth two sunsets on Mars, and raise you a moon.

Aye, ye found the tracks of the elusive marsupial, the one Phage wanted us to find. Will Phage be satisfied with tracks and not the creature itself?

I'd wonder more if all of them had the exact same shape, although it looks on quick glance like two of them do. How would people analyze this one?

The prairie of the soul has its sandy days, and when a giraffe bites the dust, the dust itself weeps.

Decapitated giraffe. The worse kind.
