I had much doubt on where to post these shots: to 'Astronomy' or 'General' forum. Finally decided to post it here.

It was a short trip to the martian mid-latitudes on sol 1473 (by Opportunity) - equivalent to Mar.16,2008 on Earth.

I'm sorry to have very few images of that great red planet, but I had very little time before another spacecraft took me back on Earth.

You flew past me Roman when you passed over the Moon. Did you not see me thumbing a lift on Plato?  Grin
