Northern Tip of 'Solander Point' on Endeavour Crater Rim
NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity used its navigation camera (Navcam) to record this image of the northern end of "Solander Point," a raised section of the western rim of Endeavour Crater.

The rover team is using Opportunity to study outcrops around the edge of Solander Point and plans to drive the rover onto Solander Point to continue mobile operations through the upcoming Martian southern hemisphere winter.

This view was taken during the mission's 3,391st Martian day, or sol (Aug. 8, 2013). It is centered toward west-northwest, looking across the northern tip of Solander Point.
