Opportunity horizon panorama, sol 2140 On sol 2140 (January 30, 2010), parked at the edge of Concepción crater, Opportunity got her first clear view of the rim of Endeavour crater. She is aiming toward "landfall" at Cape York, a spot to the left of the tall peaks of Cape Tribulation, 13 kilometers away. Cape Tribulation and Cape Dromedary are both on the southwest rim of Endeavour crater, the closest part of the rim to Opportunity. The northwest rim has been eroded away. More distant hills on Endeavour's eastern rim, are much farther away than Cape Tribulation; the spot labeled "Batavia" is 30 kilometers away. Iazu is another crater beyond Endeavour, 36 kilometers away. This panorama was created from archived science data from the Planetary Data System.
