This image was taken by NASA’s Phoenix Mars Lander’s Surface Stereo Imager on Sol 15 (June 9, 2008), the 15th Martian day after landing. This panorama looks to the southeast and shows rocks casting shadows, polygons on the surface and in the far horizon, Phoenix’s backshell gleams in the distance.
The Phoenix Mission is led by the University of Arizona, Tucson, on behalf of NASA. Project management of the mission is by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. Spacecraft development is by Lockheed Martin Space Systems, Denver.
