Opportunity's view on sol 1713, just before conjunction This is a small portion of the view from Opportunity's Navcam as it paused on its drive to Endeavour to wait through Mars solar conjunction. Opportunity sits on an area of bedrock that is relatively clear of the dark Meridiani sand. The full panorama may be viewed and rotated in this Quicktime VR view, produced by Michael Howard (3.5 MB).
