This image taken by the panoramic camera aboard the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity shows the rover's empty lander, the Challenger Memorial Station, at Meridiani Planum, Mars. The image was acquired on the rover's 24 sol, or Martian day. This mosaic image consists of 12 color images acquired with the camera's red, green and blue filters. The color balance has been set to approximate the colors that a human eye would see. Opportunity is celebrating its seventh anniversary on the Red Planet, having landed on Jan. 25, 2004, Universal Time (Jan. 24, Pacific Time), for what was to be a 90-day mission.
