'Intrepid' Crater on Opportunity's Martian Trek

This view of "Intrepid" crater, about 20 meters (66 feet) in diameter, is a mosaic of images taken by the navigation camera on NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity. The view spans 180 degrees and is centered toward the east.

Opportunity approached the crater with a 36.4-meter (119-foot) drive during the 2,415th Martian day, or sol, of the rover's mission on Mars (Nov. 9, 2010), and then took the component images of this scene on the same sol. The view is presented as a cylindrical projection.
