Hunkered down in darkness

Hunkered down in darkness
Hunkered down in darkness Unreal. This image of the Mars Exploration Rovers promo picture against a backdrop of the ragged rim of Endeavour Crater was creatively processed a few years ago by Stuart Atkinson. But right now, it seems to feel like it could be a glimpse into the stormy scene the MER mission is confronting, though the rover isn’t outfitted with panther lights. A contributor to The Planetary Society’s Amateur Space Images Archive and frequent image contributor to The MER Update, Atkinson has also followed this rover’s journey in his The Road to Endeavour.
