21 February 2009

The one millionth CIPS image of any kind was taken on Saturday, 21 Feb 2009 at 17:26:31UTC (10:26:31 AM Mountain time). It was an MX normal science image taken during orbit 9957, while the spacecraft was at 62.5S, 94.0W, over the South Pacific Ocean near South America and the Antarctic Peninsula. All four cameras snapped simultaneously at that time, but this one is in row one million in the database. No clouds are immediately apparent in this image, but it is an MX image, so the clouds are dimmest here.
