El Capitan or Bust
January 4, 2005
This image mosaic taken by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity's panoramic camera highlights the rover's next target - a collection of rocks within the larger outcrop nicknamed "El Capitan." "El Capitan" is located at the top of the outcrop, a bit right of center. Opportunity will travel after it finishes exploring the trench dug by with one of its wheels.
