WOW… just wow. This stunning picture is composed of many images downloaded from the Opportunity rover that’s been roaming the surface of Mars for several years now. Absolutely beautiful!
The individual frames for this image were taken and downlinked a few weeks ago, but it took Don Davis many hours of meticulous labor to assemble it into this beautiful postcard from Mars. Take a moment to be the rover, standing there, covered with fine red dust, on a cold day in Martian winter, the yellow Sun taking its light with it as it sinks behind you.
