Press Release Images: Opportunity
24-May-2006
 
 
This panoramic image shows the view from Opportunity on the rovers 817th Martian Day, May 12, 2006.  The image shows the large ripple that Opportunity will have to navigate through as it makes its way towards 'Victoria Crater'
Opportunity's Outcrop Outing

This composite of three images from the navigation camera shows the view from NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity toward the southeast, in the direction of "Victoria Crater," on the rover's 817th Martian day, or sol (May 12, 2006). To reach Victoria Crater, still about 1,100 meters (two-thirds of a mile) from this location, the rover must navigate among the large ripples visible on the left and ahead in the distance.

On this sol, Opportunity was preparing to deploy its arm instrument suite to analyze a rock on the outcrop pavement. At upper right is a small depression that was the target of further imaging on sols 825 and 826 (May 20 and 21, 2006).
