Mars Photo of the Day - Aug 20 2011

Today's Mars photo is of Santa Maria Crater. If you look closely enough you can see Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on the crater's Southwest (lower right) rim. You can also clearly see rover tracks to the East left). Opportunity explored the crater from December 2010-March 2011, as it made its way toward Endeavour Crater. If you can't find Mars Rover Opportunity in this photo or want to learn more about this image, click the photo.
