Opportunity: 10 feet back upslope

4890-navcam1F562300468EFFD0EJP1215R0M1Sol 4890, October 26, 2017. Seeking to examine some rocks upslope from Opportunity’s last position, scientists drove the rover about 10 feet back. This places the front of the rover where the instrument arm can work on a target area that shows rocks with possible wind erosion features. The view above looks east over the floor of Endeavour Crater, at right is the Hazcam view. Click either image to enlarge it.
