Wake up Opportunity!

Wake up Opportunity!
Wake up Opportunity! In August, the rare planet-encircling dust event (PEDE) that blanketed the Red Planet in June was on the wane. The image above, taken by the Mars Color Imager camera onboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) and processed by Bruce Cantor at Malin Space Science Systems (MSSS) was taken near the end of the month. It shows the latest global view of Mars. The tiny dot in upper third of planet represents Opportunity’s location. The MER team is beginning an active listening campaign to re-establish communication with Opportunity in September. NASA / JPL-Caltech / MSSS
