We found the "official" images a bit dark and in need of reprocessing when we first saw them. We ran a few through the mill, the details were much highlighted by this process. Please visit our HOME PAGE for more aviation and space links, plus Reno Air Race information, photos, photos and more photos! Plus "Spruce Goose, Blue Angels interview, photos and....did I mention more photos!
Mars Rover unloading from Pathfinder
Image one 51k (no description) But very COOL!!
Image two 15k (ditto)
Image three (55k) The two hills in the distance, approximately one to two kilometers away, have been dubbed the "Twin Peaks" and are of great interest to Pathfinder scientists as objects of future study. The white areas on the left hill, called the "Ski Run" by scientists, may have been formed by hydraulic processes. (text from JPL website)
Image four (51k) This new view of the rock dubbed "Couch" was taken by the deployed Imager for Mars Pathfinder (IMP) on Sol 3. Earlier images, taken by the undeployed IMP, hinted that Couch was balanced upon the rectangular rock approximately three-quarters of the way up from the bottom of the image. The deployed IMP, standing 1.8 meters above the Martian surface, has now revealed Couch to be a free-standing object positioned at the Martian horizon. (text from JPL site)
Image five (33k) Shot taken from Rover looking back at Pathfinder.

Here's a list of Pathfinder mirror sites, as listed at the JPL site. Sites are listed by capacity, largest capacity in each section in descending order. There are MANY more images available on these sites! In case you've not noticed......we're very excited about these pictures. This is truly a very important moment in our human history!
