Looking back at an old friend…

Yesterday NASA released a new image of Opportunity, taken from orbit by the magnificent HiRISE camera onboard the amazing Mars Reconaissance Orbiter. You can clearly see Oppy standing on the edge of Concepcion crater…

Not sure which of those blurry, pixellated…things… is Oppy? This wider angle view will help, if you click on it to bring up a larger version…

And yes, you really CAN see The Chocolate Hills on that image! Definitely one of my very, very favourite rocks on Mars…

I wonder if we’ll see any rocks as fascinating as that once we reach the Twin Craters?
