Photo round-up…

Oppy’s image pipeline hasn’t dried-up yet, some pictures are still coming back, so let’s catch up on what Oppy has been taking a look at…

First of all, Oppy has been taking another look at “Rodrigo de Jerez”, a strange grouping of shrapnel-like rocks jutting up out of the ground a short distance up ahead of her…

In 3D it looks even more bizarre…

I’m probably barking very loudly up the wrong tree, but it looks to me almost like the object in the middle there landed on, and broke up, some sort of fragile structure, like a badly-eroded rock..? I don’t know, I’m just talking to myself, really… 🙂

Also returned today were some images of this rock formation…

…which is interesting because it appears to show some horizontal layering in the rocks over on that northern side of Santa Maria, like Oppy saw back at both Endurance and Victoria Crater further to the north.

And here’s a jumble of rocks which has been named after Santa Maria crewman “Pedro de Bilbao”…

More to come, keep checking back…

    The top image is very strange and wonderful. All those marbles… It seems to me that your fragile object theory is sound.

    The horizontal layering looks so much like the rock cuts the highways use… On another planet, a glimpse of home.
