Go Back

From the back, err front looking back Opportunity took this image with its left front hazard camera shortly after getting stuck in a dune on Sol 833, at approximately 12:30:37 Mars local solar time. This image shows the rover's front wheels, which are actually rearward facing because the rover was driving backward at the time of the incident.
