Marking 5000 Sols in Perseverance Valley

Marking 5000 Sols in Perseverance Valley
Marking 5000 Sols in Perseverance Valley The overhead image on the left shows the western rim of Endeavour Crater and Perseverance Valley The thin yellow line on the shws Opportunity’s route around the top and into the feature, and her current approximate location, nearly halfway down its length, crater rim to floor. The channel descending the western rim of Endeavour Crater in this stretched perspective view is Perseverance Valley, the feature Opportunity and the MER mission team have been studying, and where they celebrated their 5000th day Feb. 16, 2018, on Mars. The rover was almost halfway down the length of the valley. This view overlays a HiRISE image onto a topographic model with five-fold vertical exaggeration, to better show shapes and morphological features. NASA / JPL-Caltech / Univ. of Arizona / WUSTL
