NASA commemorates the event (which took place July 2nd) by posting this great panorama taken by the robotic explorer. The full-circle photograph is composed of 817 separate images. Opportunity and its equally tenacious sister rover, Spirit, have exceeded by many years their planned missions on the desert planet.
