Now that’s more LIKE it…

Finally, FINALLY, Santa Maria is starting to actually look like a crater instead of a line of… something…! 🙂

Here’s the latest pic we have of the crater, now less than 1km ahead:

That’s better, isn’t it? 🙂 And if you look at it in 3D (got your glasses ready? Good..) then the crater stands out even more…

Let’s quickly zoom in on the crater itself…

If you look at this “road ahead” image of mine, you’ll see just how quickly Oppy is now scooting towards her target…

I’m pretty sure that after another couple of drives we’ll be enjoying a much clearer, much more detailed view of the crater. We should start to see some of the big ejecta blocks around it, as well as detail and structure in the crater’s farside walls. Looking forward to that! 🙂
