The distant peaks of Endeavour and Iazu

The distant peaks of Endeavour and Iazu

An orbital view of Opportunity's road ahead has been rotated to match the orientation of Opportunity's horizon view on sol 2,140 (January 30, 2010). The view of the horizon has been stretched vertically to exaggerate the topography. There are numerous rows of hills on the horizon, representing different portions of craters. The center set of hills is associated with the near rim of Endeavour. The leftmost set of hills is the far rim of Endeavour, and the right-side hills are the rim of another crater, Iazu.

On sol 2,140 (January 30, 2010), Opportunity had roved to the edge of a very fresh crater named Concepcion and begun to gather the images necessary for a full-color panorama. This part of the panorama includes half of Concepcion with its blocky ejecta. On the horizon are the hills formed by the raised rims of two distant craters, Endeavour (Opportunity's goal, still about ten kilometers away) and Iazu.
