today picture:Opportunity: Me and My Shadow

This self-portrait of NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity comes courtesy of the Sun and the rover's front hazard-avoidance camera. The dramatic snapshot of Opportunity's shadow was taken as the rover continues to move farther into "Endurance Crater." The image was taken on July 26, 2004, the date when the rover fully doubled its primary mission.
