Opportunity: Seeking firmer ground

4607-navcam1P537086210EFFCUBVP2594L5M1_L4L5L5L5L6Sol 4607, January 8, 2017. Opportunity drove about 13 meters (41 feet) to the northeast, as mission controllers directed the rover toward what should prove to be firmer ground for ascending the slope. The view above (1.7 MB) looks upslope, with Beacon Rock at left.

But before driving away from the soft-ground targets Sibley and Missouri City, the Pancam took multi-band image of the disturbed area (right); false-color by Holger Isenberg. Both images enlarge when clicked.

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