"Home Plate" is viewed from orbit. North is at the top and the path followed by the rover Spirit is shown. This image was taken by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter's High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment camera on November 22, 2006. Spirit parked at "Low Ridge" with an 11-degree northerly tilt to maximize sunlight on the solar panels during the southern winter season. The original image is catalogued as PSP_001513_1655_red.
