Opportunity's Surroundings After 25 Miles on Mars

This panorama combines several images from the navigation camera on NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity to show the rover's surroundings after surpassing 25 miles (40.23 kilometers) of total driving on Mars.

The component images were taken on July 29, 2014, during the 3,737th Martian day, or sol, of Opportunity's work on Mars, prior to that sol's drive. The rover's location was the point it reached with a drive of 157 feet (48 meters) on Sol 3735 (July 27, 2014), which brought Opportunity's total odometry to 25.01 miles (40.25 kilometers).

The site is on the western side of the west rim of Endeavour Crater. This full-circle vista is centered approximately to the east, with the crater rim extending northward in the left half and southward in the right half.
