Big Picture: Mars rover late in the day

10 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

More than eight years into its mission, Nasa's Opportunity rover still gets stunning views of Mars. This three-wavelength, false-colour image captures the rover's own shadow in light from the end of its 2,888th Martian day. In the foreground is the western rim of the vast Endeavour crater, where Opportunity passed the Martian winter.

Fantastic stuff.

Let's hope that Curiosity has the same excellent track record as its little cousins.

I know it's only the shadow of the rover, but look at the shadow top right. It looks like the shadow of a martian standing behind the rover and waving.

Hang on,,,,,,,,,,,maybe............ :w00t:

Marvin the Martian?

Just wish we could send a swiffler to clean it off, might give it a few years.
