Opportunity: Rover backtrail

4710-navcamSol 4710, April 24, 2017. The Navcam shot a semi-pan looking back north and showing the rover’s tracks as it came down from Cape Tribulation and across the level separating that cape from the next one south, Cape Byron. The interior of Endeavour Crater lies to the right, while the plains of Meridiani Planum extend to the left.

Below is a three-frame Pancam false-color composite from Sol 4709 (by Holger Isenberg) of the exposed bedrock-and-sand-ripple at left center in the image above. Click either image to enlarge it.
