That's a really clear circular indentation in that big rock, I must say. Also, all of the recent pics of Methuselah are very interesting.

I wonder what sort of process could have caused it.

The Spirit team is experimenting with taking images of the Sun while the camera is moving:

What would they expect to find by following the Sun, any idea?

Little confused by this... Meaning they use a very long shutter speed, and the camera is actually moving?

Looks like a flake caused by a glancing blow from another rock.

This is an image taken earlier today by the microscopic imager on the instrument arm of a small part of the exposed bedrock it saw last week.

Sometime soon, Spirit Rover will begin to resume climbing the hill (or not). Steve Squyres says they&#39;ll have to make an interesting strategic decision soon.
