Opportunity: Meridiani Plain



Opportunity

Etched by tracks left behind by Opportunity, this 550-image panorama of the Meridiani plain—taken at the end of March 2004—shows 65-foot-wide (20-meter-wide) Eagle crater, where the spacecraft Opportunity came to rest on January 25, 2004. Visible in the crater are the lander and the pale rocks that yielded the first solid evidence for Martian water.
