Mars Rover Photograph Name Decode 

According to Wikipedia, the mean length of a Martian day or "sol", is 24 hours, 39 minutes, and 35.244 seconds. This means that the calculation may not show the same day as other sources. However, it should be fairly close, but depends when one sol or Earth day goes into the next. I have shown the start time of the Sol and dates entered without times assume midday.

If you find an official Mars Rover Sol conversion utility on the web, I would be interested to know about it, to find out if we both agree - more or less. Similarly, if you think you have found a problem with this utility, please send me an email by using the form accessible from the home page of this website. Giving as many details as you can will help the process of sorting out the problem. Thanks.
