Opportunity Traverse Map, Sol 2450

This map shows the path that NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity followed from the 1,813th Martian day, or sol, of its work on Mars (Feb. 28, 2009) to Sol 2450 (Dec. 15, 2010). On Sol 2450, Opportunity approached a crater informally named "Santa Maria," which is about 90 meters (295 feet) in diameter.

The base map is imagery from the Context Camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

Opportunity completed its three-month prime mission in April 2004.
