From poor little Spirit’s twin, Opportunity, comes this panoramic view. HERE.
It is stitched together from 817 images taken between 12 Dec 2011 and 8 May 2012 while Opportunity was stationed on an outcrop called “Greeley Haven” during the Martian winter.
According to NASA, false color was added to show the difference between materials on the Red Planet (so what you’re seeing may not really be that red or blue).
You can see Opportunity’s tracks on the left, which have exposed some darker soil underneath. The Endeavor Crater, which spans about 14 miles in diameter, can be seen at the right of the image just below the horizon.

When its the Martian winter and it takes longer for your dusty solar panels to pick up energy, you know just the right pick me up!
That’s right! It’s not just any coffee. It’s Mystic Monk Coffee!
