Well, not exactly what I was hoping for compared to the mirror shot in the heat shield, but at least you can see the hazcam!

Can JPL post it on Hot or Not now? :D

Actually, can you show me a link to the heat shield mirror shot?

Thanks,

OOPS - I meant compared to the one I was hoping that they would take at the heat shield site. Oppy never did get close enough to the reflective insulation to see itself. I think there was too much schmutz blowing about and mission control was worried about harming the optics.

So this will have to do - unless they happen upon something else reflective... 8-[

Would it be possible to orient the arm in such a way as that the Pancam could see its reflection?

Spirit is so dirtier!

...and perfectly camouflaged as well! :) One wonders how those solar panels still get any light ;). What a difference with oppy (also in the surrounding terrain on those pics by the way).
