This overview map made from images taken by the camera on the Mars Global Surveyor orbiter illustrates the path that the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity has taken from its first sol on the red planet through its 91st sol. After thoroughly examining its "Eagle Crater" landing-site, the rover moved onto the plains of Meridiani Planum, stopping to examine a curious trough and a target within it called "Anatolia." Following that, Opportunity approached and remotely studied the rocky dish called "Fram Crater." As of its 91st sol (April 26, 2004), the rover has traveled about 811 meters (.5 miles) and currently sits about 160 meters (525 feet) from the rim of its next target, "Endurance Crater."
