Opportunity: Sleepy II, and driving on

4445-navcam1P522786964EFFCRHJP2542L5M1_L2L5L5L7L7Sol 4445, July 26, 2016. Opportunity turned its Pancam onto a clump of rocks collectively dubbed Sleepy II. (False-color version by Holger Isenberg.) Names here commemorate rocks studied by the Viking landers 40 years ago this summer.

Then the rover drove more than 100 feet (32 meters) to the north, as seen in the Navcam composite above. It will explore along the northern edge of Marathon Valley, descending toward the Endeavour Crater floor. (Click images to enlarge them.)

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