'Nobbys Head' on Opportunity's Southward Route (Right Eye)

NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity used its navigation camera to record this view of a rise called "Nobbys Head" during a stop on a multi-week southward drive between two raised segments of the west rim of Endeavour Crater. This image is the right-eye member of a stereo pair. The view is centered toward the south-southeast, with Opportunity's next destination, "Solander Point," a bump on the horizon.

Nobbys Head is about a third of the way from the rim segment where Opportunity worked for most of the past two years, "Cape York," to Solander Point. The rover began a trek of approximately 1.2 miles (2 kilometers) from part of Cape York to Solander Point in late May 2013. The navigation camera exposures that are combined into this mosaic view were taken during the 3,335th Martian day, or sol, of Opportunity's mission on Mars (June 11, 2013).
