The Phoenix Mars Lander team released new photos this morning, including this expanded version of the photo of the Phoenix during its descent state. We showed you the close-up yesterday; this one, featuring an enormous crater, is the long view. You can see the Phoenix in the inset.

NASA also announced that the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter is having some technical difficulties in communicating with the Phoenix, but officials say it's just a temporary glitch that should be resolved soon. As a result, the science team was unable to send today's instructions to the Phoenix, which will instead continue with a pre-programmed routine.

More details at the Phoenix Web site.
