Mariner 6 and 7 mosaic of Sinus Meridiani
None of the landmarks visited by Opportunity is visible in this image, but "Endeavour," the informal name of the large crater to which Opportunity is now driving, is just visible as a dark spot. Also marked on the map is Miyamoto, one of the proposed landing sites for Mars Science Laboratory. Mariner 6 and 7 flew by Mars on July 31 and August 5, 1969.
Original image data dated on or about August 5, 1969.
