West Valley panorama, Spirit sol 1,366-1,369
The images for this panorama were taken by the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit on sol 1,366-1,369 (November 6-9, 2007) from its position on the eastern edge of Home Plate. The view spans about 180° around the rover, from southwest to northeast. A rock-dotted hill in the middle distance across the left third of the image is "Tsiolkovski Ridge," about 30 meters or 100 feet from the edge of Home Plate and about that same distance across. A bump on the horizon above the left edge of Tsiolkovski Ridge is "Grissom Hill," about 8 kilometers or 5 miles away. At right, the highest point of the horizon is "Husband Hill," to the north and about 800 meters or half a mile away.
