Opportunity: The course ahead

4911-navcamSol 4911, November 17, 2017. As Opportunity’s scientists continue their survey of the troughs and channels in Perseverance Valley, they are driving the rover downhill. Side trips and brief upslope forays may occur as they study the bumps in the valley. But the rover’s overall course is leading down the inside rim of Endurance Crater to the floor, seen in the distance at the top of the late afternoon Navcam composite above.
