Sunset in Gusev Crater, sol 813
Sunset in Gusev Crater, sol 813 Suffering from a gimpy wheel and dimming sunlight, Spirit settled into a parked position at "Low Ridge Haven" on sol 807 (10 April 2006). Low Ridge Haven gave Spirit a 10.8-degree tilt toward the north, improving the power output of its solar panels. Even so, it only had power sufficient for one hour of science operations per sol.
