Phoenix landing site panorama – almost done!

Posted by briony

One of the goals of the Phoenix mission is to create a full color panorama of the landing site, and the team is well on their way to completing it! Emily over at the Planetary Society has put together what’s available so far, and has created this beautiful mosaic (image links to full res):

As Emily mentions, the team still has to fill in the area immediately around the lander, as well as some data gaps above. But I can already imagine what it would be like to be at the landing site!
