Opportunity: Perched on a lily pad, looking down

4836-navcamSol 4836, September 1, 2017. With a bit of driving on Sol 4834 (note the tracks at left), Opportunity is now perched on one of its “lily pads,” bits of ground that tip the rover’s solar panels northward for better power. Above is a 7-frame Navcam composite that looks downslope and stretches around to the southeast, profiling the terrain. Click image to enlarge it.
