Opportunity near Pompy’s Tower

4550-navcamSol 4550, November 11, 2016. Continuing its journey along Endeavour Crater’s rim, Opportunity stands near Pompy’s Tower (left) in the Navcam composite above. The yellow rectangle indicates the area shown below in the two Pancam frames that take a look at surface rocks nearby. Like many rocks found on the rim, they have a “faceted” appearance suggesting they have been abraded, smoothed, and shaped by wind-blown dust particles. (Click either image to enlarge it.)
