Opportunity: Looking around, looking down

1P545349441ESFCXT6P2574L5M1_L2L5L5L7L71P545348683ESFCXT6P2509L5M1_L2L5L5L7L7Sol 4699, April 13, 2017. At the foot of Cape Tribulation, there’s an exposure of flat-lying rock that scientists are examining. At right is a false-color image showing Opportunity’s “work plane” (where the instrument can reach).

Above is another false color image showing a geologically recent impact crater, which lies a short distance away from the rover’s path. This may be the best view scientists get of it, as a closer visit isn’t in the plans. (Both images are reconstructions by Holger Isenberg and both enlarge when clicked.)

Opportunity raw images, its latest mission status, a location map, and atmospheric opacity, known as tau.
