Opportunity Lander Platform Inside 'Eagle Crater'
Opportunity lander platform inside 'Eagle Crater'

This HiRISE image shows "Eagle crater," the small martian impact crater where Opportunity's airbag-cushioned lander came to rest. The lander is still clearly visible on the floor of the crater. Opportunity spent about 60 martian days exploring rock outcrops and soils in Eagle crater before setting off to explore more of Meridiani Planum.
