Go Back

Spirit bumps upslope, sols 1,707-1,713 Spirit began its fourth season of motion on Mars with some short "bumps" up the northern slope of Home Plate on sols 1,707 to 1,713. This animation is composed of four views taken with the forward Hazard Avoidance Cameras, mounted just below the solar panel deck in front of the rover.
