Original Caption Released with Image:

This mosaic of images from the navigation camera on NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity shows a 90-degree view centered toward the east following a 122.2-meter (401-foot) drive east-northeastward during the 2,401st Martian day, or sol, of Opportunity's mission on Mars (Oct. 25, 2010).

The camera took the component images for this mosaic on Sol 2401 after the drive. The terrain includes light-toned bedrock and darker ripples of wind-blown sand. On the following sol, Opportunity drove an additional 93.6 meters (307 feet) toward its long-term destination: the rim of Endeavour Crater. Portions of the rim, still more than 8 kilometers (5 miles) away, are visible in the horizon of this scene. This view is presented as a cylindrical projection.
