This stereo 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 view appears three-dimensional when viewed through red-blue glasses with the red lens on the left.

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.

This panorama combines right-eye and left-eye views presented as cylindrical-perspective projections.
