<p><span style="font-family:Verdana"><BR/>Replying to:<BR/><DIV CLASS='Discussion_PostQuote'>rlb2:&nbsp; Wow!&nbsp; That is very interesting.&nbsp; I also wonder what made those curtains of suspended yellow dust.&nbsp; Has anyone else noticed this yet? <br />Posted by silylene</DIV></span></p><p><span style="font-family:Verdana">Hi silylene, my thoughts too. There is some interest by JPL and Cornel&nbsp;or they wouldn't have made so many images by the same L6 filter - meaning they are interested in the movement of something. The dust movement in the animation I made above is over 8 minutes long from first image to last - yet the dust didn&rsquo;t move much in that time. It so far appears to extend over 7 sol's? If you look at the animation I made there is some movement in each frame - meaning the camera moved a bit. </span></p><p><span style="font-family:Verdana">Note this may be the result of trying to do two things at once, maybe they were moving something else in-between frames, this however wasn't the case in the color </span><span style="font-family:Verdana">RGB</span><span style="font-family:Verdana"> filter images&nbsp;I processed. Another reason for the movement in the frames is that the rover slips a bit down an incline? The dust isn't moving much so wind passing through the area may not be the cause.</span></p><p><span style="font-family:Verdana">They may not have put 1 and 1 together yet meaning the Yellow - color difference when combining the </span><span style="font-family:Verdana">RGB</span><span style="font-family:Verdana"> images. Whatever it is they seem to be interested because of the L6 images they keep taking, I used L6 filters for the animation that I did, they would do the same for their&nbsp;animation. Note L6-blue is 482nm. The color yellow that we see&nbsp;is&nbsp;570 to 580 nm, the closes Rover filter to that is L5- Green&nbsp;535nm.</span></p><p>http://sitelife.space.com/ver1.0/Forums/#</p><p>&nbsp;</p> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> Ron Bennett </div>
