Opportunity Meridiani Planum Traverse Route

CTX mosaic colorized using Mars Express HRSC data (Orbit 3220) overlaid with Opportunity's traverse route across Meridiani Planum. Over its 14 1/2 years on the Martian surface, Opportunity traveled 45.16 km from its landing site in Eagle Crater. The site of its last communication with Earth (and presumably its final resting place) at Perseverance Valley lies almost exactly 25 km as the crow flies from its starting point.
