One View, Two Craters

April 22, 2004
This cylindrical projection was constructed from a sequence of four images taken by the navigation camera onboard the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity. The images were acquired on sol 85 of Opportunity's mission to Meridiani Planum. The camera acquired the images at approximately 14:28 local solar time, or around 6:30 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time, on April 20, 2004. The view is from the rover's new location, a region dubbed Fram Crater located some 450 meters (.3 miles) from Eagle Crater and roughly 250 meters (820 feet) from Endurance Crater (upper right).
