'Naturaliste' Crater, Opportunity SOl 387 (3-D)
March 3, 2005
NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity used its navigation camera to take the images combined into this stereo view of the rover's surroundings on Opportunity's 387th martian day, or sol (Feb. 24, 2005). Opportunity had driven about 73 meters (240 feet) and reached the eastern edge of a small crater dubbed "Naturaliste," seen in the right foreground. This stereo view is presented in a cylindrical-perspective projection with geometric and brightness seam correction.
