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
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.
Opportunity's view of 'Solander Point'
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
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.
View of 'Cape Verde' from 'Cape St. Mary'
Full Resolution
As Opportunity continued to traverse from "Erebus Crater" toward "Victoria Crater," the rover navigated along exposures of bedrock between large, wind-blown ripples.
Cobbles in Troughs Between Meridiani Ripples
Full Resolution
This view combines frames taken by the panoramic camera on Opportunity's 652nd through 663rd Martian days, or sols (Nov. 23 to Dec. 5, 2005), at the edge of "Erebus Crater."
Bird's-Eye View of Opportunity at 'Erebus'
Full Resolution
This is the Opportunity "Erebus Rim" panorama, acquired on sols 652 to 663 (Nov. 23 to Dec. 5, 2005 ), as Opportunity was exploring sand dunes and outcrop rocks in Meridiani Planum.
On the Rim of 'Erebus'
Full Resolution
This image shows a portion of the rim of "Erebus Crater" in the Meridiani Planum region of Mars.
Rim of 'Erebus'
Full Resolution
These images of a sand "ripple" were acquired by Opportunity using its panoramic camera on sol 644 and its navigation camera on sol 645.
Windblown Ripple 'Scylla'
Full Resolution
This false-color panoramic image, taken on martian day, or sol, 561 (Aug. 22, 2005) by the Opportunity rover, shows the nature of the outcrop rocks that the rover is encountering on its southward journey across the martian plains to "Erebus Crater."
Opportunity Examines Cracks and Coatings on Mars Rocks
Full Resolution
This panoramic image, dubbed "Rub al Khali," was taken by Opportunity on the plains of Meridiani during the rover's 456th to 464th sols on Mars.
Opportunity's 'Rub al Khali' Panorama
Full Resolution
Opportunity's wheels dug more than 10 centimeters (4 inches) deep into the soft, sandy material of a wind-shaped ripple in Mars' Meridiani Planum region during the rover's 446th martian day, or sol (April 26, 2005).
Looking Back at 'Purgatory Dune'
Full Resolution
Opportunity used its panoramic camera to take the images combined into this mosaic view of the rover.
Opportunity Self-Portrait
Full Resolution
This stunning image features the heat shield impact site of NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity.
Impressive Impact
Full Resolution
Opportunity found an iron meteorite on Mars, the first meteorite of any type ever identified on another planet.
