beautiful new panorama taken by the rover Opportunity on Mars shows the rover’s winter resting place where it waited out the colder temperatures and less power before resuming driving again a few weeks ago. The parking spot, nicknamed Greeley Haven, is an outcrop on the edge of the massive Endeavour crater.

The 360 degree view, taken with the rover’s Pancam camera, shows Greeley Haven, Endeavour, rover tracks and portions of the rover itself.
