Looking North from Phoenix
June 18, 2008
This series of images, taken by NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander's Surface Stereo Imager, has been combined into a panoramic view looking north from the lander. The area depicted is beyond the immediate workspace of the lander and shows a system of polygons and troughs that connect with the ones Phoenix will be investigating in depth. The images in the panorama were taken on Sol 14 (June 8, 2008), or the 14th Martian day after landing.
