This 360-degree panorama shows the vista from the location where NASA’s Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity spent five weeks in November and December 2008 while the sun was nearly directly in between Mars and Earth, limiting communications.
The view combines 276 different exposures taken with Opportunity’s panoramic camera (Pancam) -- 92 pointings, with three filters at each pointing. The component images were taken during the period from the rover’s 1,716th Martian day, or sol, to the mission’s Sol 1719 (Nov. 21 to 24, 2008).
