Mars - The View form Lookout Point
Mars
From a ridgeline vantage point overlooking slopes, valleys and plains, NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit has returned its latest color panorama of the Martian landscape. The approximately true color image shows a full 360-degree view from a site informally named "Larry's Lookout," about halfway up "Husband Hill." Spirit and its twin, Opportunity, successfully completed three-month primary missions in 2004. In extended missions since then, they have been exploring at increasing distances from their landing sites.
