This image shows rocky debris and dust, which planetary scientists call "regolith" or "soil," that has been churned up by the rover wheels.
Churned-Up Rocky Debris and Dust
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 view captured by Spirit called "Legacy" panorama, combines images taken between the landing site and the rim of "Bonnevile Crater."
Legacy Panorama on Spirit's Way to 'Bonneville'

NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit took this image of the region near "Husband Hill."
Rover Tracks Near 'Husband Hill'
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.
Iron Meteorite on Mars
Full Resolution
This image from Opportunity's panoramic camera features the remains of the heat shield that protected the rover from temperatures of up to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit as it made its way through the martian atmosphere.

Full Resolution
Opportunity captured this view of "Burns Cliff" after driving right to the base of this southeastern portion of the inner wall of "Endurance Crater."
'Burns Cliff' Color Panorama
Full Resolution
This stunning image mosaic of the "Columbia Hills" is the first 360-degree panorama taken since the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit arrived at the hills over a month ago.
'Cahokia' Panorama
Full Resolution
At a rock called "Clovis," the rock abrasion tool on Spirit cut a 9-millimeter (0.35-inch) hole. To the right of the drill hole is a "brush flower" of circles produced by scrubbing the surface of the rock with the abrasion tool's wire brush.
Deep Hole in 'Clovis'
Full Resolution
This false-color image taken by Spirit shows a group of darker rocks dubbed "Toltecs," lying to the southeast of the rover's position.
The Call of the Dark Rocks
Full Resolution
As Opportunity crept farther into "Endurance Crater," the dune field on the crater floor appears even more dramatic, as seen in this false-color image.
Endurance Crater's' Dazzling Dunes
Full Resolution
As Opportunity crept farther into "Endurance Crater," the dune field on the crater floor appears even more dramatic.
'Endurance Crater's' Dazzling Dunes
Full Resolution
This self-portrait of NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity comes courtesy of the Sun and the rover's front hazard-avoidance camera.
Opportunity Catches its Shadow
Full Resolution
This view from the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity's panoramic camera is a false-color composite rendering of the first seven holes that the rover's rock abrasion tool dug on the inner slope of "Endurance Crater."
False-Color View of a 'Rat' Hole Trail
Full Resolution
The pointy features, dubbed "Razorback," in this image may only be a few centimeters high but they generate major scientific interest.
The 'Razorback' Mystery
Full Resolution
This image is an approximately true color rendering of the slope of "Endurance Crater," which the Opportunity rover explored in 2004.
Three Fresh Exposures in 'Endurance' Layers
Full Resolution
This false-color image highlights mysterious and sparkly dust-like material that is created when the soil in this region is disturbed.
Hank's Hollow' Sparkles
Full Resolution
This close-up image taken by Spirit highlights the nodular nuggets that cover the rock dubbed "Pot of Gold."
A 'Pot of Gold' Rich with Nuggets
Full Resolution
This 360-degree panorama shows "Endurance Crater" and the surrounding plains of Meridiani Planum.
Crater of Clues
