Opportunity update - still going

While the Curiosity rover tests out its array of instruments, the long-lived Opportunity rover just keeps going and contributing to our knowledge of Mars.   It's checking out a region called 'Matijevic Hill'.  Still trying to find clay minerals, I think.

Survey of Matijevic Hill continues

Here's a recent picture from the place.

There's also a stereo picture (need the blue-red glasses for it)

Also from Mars, a stunning image from the Mars Express orbiter of the Nereidium Montes region:
