Has anyone seen a panorama of Missoula crater? I just parused the JPL site, and I didn't see one. I would have assumed JPL would have taken a panorama of that crater when they stopped there, last week.

What seemed to me to be Missoula Crater just looked like a big shallow depression, like Bonneville but not nearly as deep. I don't think you'll see any color panorams of it.

Here's a black-and-white Navcam panorama. Missoula Crater is in the center. (http://marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov/gallery/press/spirit/20040426a/site_32_navcam_360_cyp_L-A110R1_br2.jpg)

You're right - I can see individual images (from Sol 106), but nothing with them put together. Hmm, something to do this evening, perhaps....

How about just linking to that image rather than messing up our horizontal scrolling?

OK, fixed. Sorry about that. #-o

It does look just like Bonneville. Interesting that the craters at Gusev are not very noteworthy and we haven't found any bedrock yet, but at Meridiani there's outcrop in every little crack or depression that we look in.

Here ya go! Homegrown, but not too bad, even if I say so myself:

Smaller image (http://members.wap.org/kevin.parker/images/MissoulaSm.jpg) (216k)

Not-so-small image (http://members.wap.org/kevin.parker/images/Missoula.jpg) (692k)

These are based on Sol 106 pancam images.

There is now an official panorama on this page (http://marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov/gallery/press/spirit/20040428a.html) (scroll down a few screens).
