New pics from Spirit…

Here are a couple of new colourisations of raw images sent back by Spirit as she skirts and scoots around the edge of Homeplate…

Love the variety of rocks visible on that image, and love the detail visible in the disturbed dirt here, too..

Chance to see Station AND Shuttle tonight…

… IF the weather co-operates… hahahahahahaha…

Well, you never know, the clouds might clear, just for a little while. If they do part this evening, and if you live in the UK, look to the west around 7.05pm and wait a couple of minutes and you’ll see the ISS coming up over the horizon (around 7.09pm). It will be followed at 7.19pm by the space shuttle Discovery. So, in theory there’s a chance to see both spacecraft in the sky this evening.

Those two words… WEATHER PERMITTING… :-/

UPDATE: Thwarted by cloud. Curses. 😦
