Opportunity's Surroundings After Sol 2393 Drive (Stereo)
This mosaic of images from the navigation camera on NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity shows surroundings of the rover's location following an 100.7-meter (330-foot) drive during the 2,393rd Martian day, or sol, of Opportunity's mission on Mars (Oct. 17, 2010). South is at the center; north at both ends. The view appears three-dimensional when viewed through red-blue glasses with the red lens on the left.
The camera took the component images for this 360-degree panorama during sols 2393 and 2394. The terrain includes light-toned bedrock and darker ripples of wind-blown sand. For scale, the distance between the parallel wheel tracks in the right half of the image is about 1 meter (about 40 inches).
This panorama combines right-eye and left-eye views presented as cylindrical-perspective projections.
