Spirit: Halfway done with the 'Bonestell Pan'

Spirit: Halfway done with the 'Bonestell Pan'
Spirit: Halfway done with the 'Bonestell Pan' Although the chill and low sun of winter sharply limit the science activity of Spirit, the rover has slowly and steadily been acquiring images for a 360-degree panorama from its parking spot on the slope of Home Plate. As of 16 July 2008 Spirit was about halfway done with the panorama; this image represents about 120 sols of work for the rover. This panorama was taken from the Martian Chronicles weblog, where it can be downloaded at its original resolution; the color in the version shown here has been tweaked slightly by Astro0.
