It seems that Opportunity has really been bitten by the meteorite-collecting bug! After investigating “Block Island” and then “Shelter Island” she’s now taking a look at another meteorite christened “Mackinac”. (Guess they ran out of good island names to use!*) Mackinac looks quite a bit smaller than Block and Shelter to me, but what do I know! 🙂 Anyway, so far we only have black and white images, but hopefully there’ll be some colour triples down soon. In the meantime, here’s what I’ve been able to make so far…
More to come. Watch this space!
* UPDATE: I’ve been told by several people that Mackinac IS the name of an island. My mistake, sorry! I was fooled by the name not having the word “island” in it. 😉
