Go Back

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.
