Sols 4429-30, July 9-10, 2016. Opportunity has beeen busy as it wraps up activities at the head of Marathon Valley.
Above, the Pancam (in Holger Isenberg‘s false-color version) examined the outcrop dubbed Jean-Baptiste La Jeunesse (click to enlarge).
Then the rover drove about 8 meters (25 feet) to the north-northwest to a new target dubbed Bashful II (right). (The naming scheme commemorates rocks identified by the Viking landers in 1976.)
First, Pancam took a stand-off view, then Opportunity approached the rock, and Pancam imaged it from close up (lower right).
Opportunity raw images, its latest mission status, a location map. and atmospheric opacity, known as tau.
