Shadow Self-Portrait by Opportunity at Endeavour Crater
Opportunity Investigation Target "Onaping"

This image from the front hazard-avoidance camera (Hazcam) on the NASA Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity shows the rover's arm extended for examination of a target called "Onaping" at the base of an outcrop called "Copper Cliff" in the Matijevic Hill area of the west rim of Endeavour Crater.

The image was taken during the 3,163rd Martian day, or sol, of Opportunity's work on Mars (Dec. 16, 2012).

Opportunity's Surroundings on 3,000th Sol
Opportunity's Surroundings on Sol 3071, on 'Whitewater Lake' Outcrop

This full-circle panorama shows the terrain around the NASA Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity during the 3,071st Martian day, or sol, of the rover's work on Mars (Sept. 13, 2012). It was assembled from images taken by the rover's navigation camera. South is at the center. North is on both ends.

Opportunity had driven about 34 feet (10.3 meters) the preceding sol to reach this location, which is on part of a relatively flat, light-toned outcrop called "Whitewater Lake."  A darker, adjacent outcrop, called "Kirkwood," lies just east of the rover's location and cuts a band through the middle of this view.

The basin of Endeavour Crater is in the left half of the image. Opportunity has been working on the western rim of Endeavour since mid-2011. 

The panorama is presented as a cylindrical projection.

Opportunity's Surroundings on 3,000th Sol, in 3-D
Opportunity's Surroundings on Sol 3071, Stereo View

This full-circle, stereo panorama shows the terrain around the NASA Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity during the 3,071st Martian day, or sol, of the rover's work on Mars (Sept. 13, 2012). It was assembled from images taken by the rover's navigation camera. The view appears in three dimensions when viewed through red-blue glasses with the red lens on the left.

South is at the center. North is on both ends.

Opportunity's Surroundings on Sol 3105, on 'Matijevic Hill'

This full-circle panorama shows the terrain around the NASA Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity during the 3,105th Martian day, or sol, of the rover's work on Mars (Oct. 18, 2012). It was assembled from images taken by the rover's navigation camera. South is at the center. North is on both ends.

Opportunity had driven about 61 feet (18.5 meters) westward earlier on Sol 3105 to reach this location, which is on the northern portion of "Matijevic Hill" on the "Cape York" segment of the western rim of Endeavour Crater. The wheel tracks created by the drive are visible. For scale, the distance between the two parallel tracks is about 3.3 feet (1 meter).

Opportunity at 'Copper Cliff,' Sol 3153

This 180-degree mosaic of images from the navigation camera on the NASA Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity shows terrain near the rover during the 3,153rd Martian day, or sol, of the rover's work on Mars (Dec. 6, 2012). West is at the center, south at the left edge, north at the right edge.

Opportunity had driven about 7 feet (2.2 meters) westward earlier on Sol 3153 to get close to the outcrop called "Copper Cliff," which is in the center of this scene. The location is on the east-central portion of "Matijevic Hill" on the "Cape York" segment of the western rim of Endeavour Crater.

The view is presented as a cylindrical projection.
