Opportunity's sol 5000 self-portrait
Opportunity's sol 5000 self-portrait On sol 5000 of its 90-day mission, Opportunity used its Microscopic Imager (MI) to capture a view of itself on Mars. The MI is designed to view targets very close to the lens and has no focus capability, so its images of the rover are out of focus. It took 17 MI frames to cover the rover. This mosaic has been artificially colorized using a Mars-appropriate color palette. NASA / JPL-Caltech / Cornell / USGS / James Sorenson / Don Davis
