Mars panoramas

Greeley Haven“, Mars (2012).

This is the latest panorama released by NASA July 2012. It was assembled from 817 images taken between Dec. 21, 2011, and May 8, 2012, while Opportunity was stationed on an outcrop informally named “Greeley Haven”, on a segment of the rim of ancient Endeavour Crater.

Probably the only time panoramas from another planet will be featured here, these have been around for a while but they’ve only impinged on the wider internet consciousness this week thanks to the arrival on Mars of the Curiosity Rover. Particularly impressive if you’re fortunate enough to have a large monitor. I’m looking forward now to seeing what panoramic images NASA’s new explorer delivers.
