Mars Exploration Rover Image Release

 left-eye half of a stereo pair
Ready to Enter 'Endurance'(Left Eye)
This is the left-eye half of a stereo pair of views looking toward the northeast across "Endurance Crater" in Mars' Meridiani Planum region. It was assembled from frames taken by the navigation camera on NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity during the rover's 131st martian day, or sol, on June 6, 2004. That was two sols before Opportunity entered the crater, taking the route nearly straight ahead in this image into the "Karatepe" area of the crater. This view is a cylindrical-perspective projection with geometric seam correction.
