Original Caption Released with Image:
This image shows the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity's view of the martian horizon from its new position on the surface of Mars. Engineers received confirmation that Opportunity's six wheels rolled off the lander and onto martian soil at 3:01 a.m. PST, January 31, 2004, on the seventh martian day, or sol, of the mission. The rover is approximately 1 meter (3 feet) in front of the lander, facing north. The image was taken at Meridiani Planum by the rover's front hazard-identification camera.
