Opportunity's world of dunes and rock
Opportunity's been making tracks lately, with brief stops to check out a couple of meteorites. I thought this view of its surroundings on sol 2,034 (a couple of days ago) was neat. It's a polar projection -- Opportunity's 360-degree view is projected onto the inside of a hemisphere, and it's like we're looking straight down onto that hemisphere.
