This image shows NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity along the eastern rim of 'Endurance Crater' before reaching the beginning of the 'Karatepe' area on Mars.

This right eye of a stereo pair of views in a cylindrical-perspective projection was created from navigation camera images that NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity acquired on sol 103 (May 8, 2004). Opportunity traversed approximately 13 meters (about 43 feet) farther south along the eastern rim of "Endurance Crater" before reaching the beginning of the "Karatepe" area. Scientists believe this layered band of rock may be a good place to begin studying Endurance because it is less steep and more approachable than the rest of the crater's rocky outcrops.

See PIA05907 for 3-D view and PIA05908 for left eye view of this right eye cylindrical-perspective projection.
