The satellite images originated on;

Mer-A Spirit, July color view from the hill ...

This is a recent six image pan I just stitched together from the side of the hill overlooking the crater plain. Spirit has a good view. The original is about 2900 pixels across. Colors are shifted to the red a bit because the red filter was in the near infra-red. To human eyes the whole scene would appear a bit more tan and the rocks a flatter grey, the pinkish tinge would be gone from the sky replaced with the color of sand. Desolate and dusty. Posted by Picasa

Sunset from Gusev Crater

The spirit rover (mer-a) recently took this color sunset shot from the hill it's been climbing looking out across the crater floor. This image was processed to merge the sun into a single image from the red green blue images. Posted by Picasa

Five F18s go head to head over Lake Washington

Just about as many head to head F18s in one image I've ever seen. This is the 2005 Seattle Sea-fair Blue Angles last Sunday. Posted by Picasa
