Shiny new objects During the first half of April 2018, Opportunity focused her cameras and her time on the unusual, pitted rocks of San Juan Pueblo in the southern border of the south fork in Perseverance Valley. These holey things could be impact melt, rocks that were instantaneously created by the high pressures and temperatures created when the asteroid or comet or meteor that created Endeavour hit. Or they could be weathered or perhaps thickly coated and then eroded, or they could be another new type of Martian rock. The science team’s investigation continues.
