Moonshot
Moonshot During the afternoon of May 5, 2017, shortly after pulling up to the top of Perseverance Valley, Opportunity looked to the sky with her Panoramic Camera “eyes” hoping to capture an image of the Martian moon Phobos as it raced by the Sun. With a little help from MER Science Team member Mark Lemmon, at 14:59 hybrid local solar time (HLST), the rover pushed camera “shutter” – and nailed it.
