This vista from NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity shows Wdowiak Ridge, from left foreground to center, as part of a northward look with the rover's tracks visible at right.
Opportunity's Northward View of 'Wdowiak Ridge'
Full Resolution
This Aug. 15, 2014, scene from the Pancam on NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity looks back toward part of the west rim of Endeavour Crater that the rover drove along, heading southward, during the summer of 2014. This version is in false color, making the rover's wheel tracks more apparent.
Rover Tracks in Northward View Along West Rim of Endeavour, False Color
Full Resolution
This false-color view from NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity shows "Lunokhod 2 Crater," which lies south of Solander Point on the west rim of Endeavour Crater.

This May 14, 2014, scene from the Pancam on NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity catches "Pillinger Point," on the western rim of Endeavour Crater, in the foreground and the crater's eastern rim on the horizon. The scene's false color makes differences in surface materials more easily visible.
'Pillinger Point' Overlooking Endeavour Crater on Mars (False Color)
Full Resolution
This vista of the Endeavour Crater rim was acquired by NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity's panoramic camera on April 18, 2014, from "Murray Ridge" on the western rim of the crater. It is presented in false color to make differences in surface materials more easily visible.

This self-portrait from overhead shows a side-by-side view of the rover solar panels. The solar panels on the left appear brown and dusty, while the solar panels on the right are light gray-green and appear wiped clean of dust.
Cleaned Solar Arrays Gleam in Mars Rover's New Selfie
Full Resolution
NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity caught its own silhouette in this late-afternoon image taken by the rover's rear hazard avoidance camera on March 20, 2014.
Shadow Portrait of NASA Rover Opportunity on Martian Slope
Full Resolution
This section from a panorama that NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit acquired in October 2005 from the top of "Husband Hill" presents the view toward the south from that summit.
NASA's Mars Rover Spirit's View Southward from Husband Hill
Full Resolution
This false color image suggests that the plains beyond the small crater where the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity now sits are littered with the same dark grey material found inside the crater in the form of spherules or "blueberries."
Berries' Here, There, Everywhere
Full Resolution
Opportunity used its panoramic camera (Pancam) to acquire this view of "Solander Poin." The southward-looking scene, presented in false color, shows Solander Point on the center horizon, "Botany Bay" in the foreground, and "Cape Tribulation" in the far background at left.

Spirit examined spectacular layered rocks exposed at "Home Plate."
Spirit Says Goodbye to 'Home Plate'
Full Resolution
Spirit acquired this mosaic while investigating the area east of the elevated plateau known as "Home Plate" in the "Columbia Hills." The trench exposed a patch of nearly pure silica, with the composition of opal. It could have come from either a hot-spring environment or an environment called a fumarole, in which acidic, volcanic steam rises through cracks. Either way, its formation involved water, and on Earth, both of these types of settings teem with microbial life.
Rover's Wheel Churns Up Bright Martian Soil

This 360-degree view from a site dubbed "Engineering Flats" shows the rover's shadow.
Spirit's View from 'Engineering Flats'
Full Resolution
This full-circle scene combines 817 images taken by the panoramic camera (Pancam) on Opportunity.
'Greeley Panorama' from Opportunity's Fifth Martian Winter
Full Resolution
On May 19th, 2005, NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit captured this stunning view as the Sun sank below the rim of Gusev crater on Mars.
A Moment Frozen in Time
Full Resolution
NASA's Mars Rover Opportunity catches its own late-afternoon shadow in this dramatically lit view eastward across Endeavour Crater on Mars.
Late Afternoon Shadows at Endeavour Crater
Full Resolution
NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity used its panoramic camera to record this eastward horizon view on the 2,407th Martian day, or sol, of the rover's work on Mars (October 31, 2010).
East Rim of Endeavour Crater
Full Resolution
This self-portrait from Opportunity shows dust accumulation on the rover's solar panels as the mission approached its fifth Martian winter.
Dusty Mars Rover Selfie
Full Resolution
"Intrepid" crater on Mars carries the name of the lunar module of NASA's Apollo 12 mission, which landed on Earth's moon Nov. 19, 1969.
'Intrepid' Crater on Mars
Full Resolution
Opportunity used its navigation camera for this northward view of tracks the rover left on a drive from one energy-favorable position on a sand ripple to another.
Opportunity Looks Back After Hop to a New Pad
Full Resolution
This view of a rock called "Block Island," the largest meteorite yet found on Mars, comes from the panoramic camera (Pancam) on Opportunity.
'Block Island' Meteorite
Full Resolution
During four months prior to the fourth anniversary of its landing on Mars, Opportunity examined rocks inside an alcove called "Duck Bay" in the western portion of Victoria Crater.
'Lyell' Panorama inside Victoria Crater
Full Resolution
NASA's twin Mars Exploration Rovers got smarter as they got older. This view from Opportunity shows the tracks left by a drive executed with more onboard autonomy than has been used on any other drive by a Mars rover.
D-Star Panorama by Opportunity
Full Resolution
Opportunity captured this vista of "Victoria Crater" from the viewpoint of "Cape Verde," one of the promontories that are part of the scalloped rim of the crater.
Panorama from 'Cape Verde'
Full Resolution
As part of its investigation of "Victoria Crater," Opportunity examined a promontory called "Cape Verde" from the vantage point of "Cape St. Mary," the next promontory clockwise around the crater's deeply scalloped rim.
