Opportunity Rover’s Martian View During Solar Conjunction

This view captured by Opportunity shows Perseverance Valley, from the west rim of Endeavour crater. This is where the rover will spend the current solar conjunction period. 

NASA notes that “Two weeks of commanding have been uploaded to the rover to keep her active during the solar conjunction with short communications with the Mars orbiters during the period.”  The report continues that “As of Sol 4792 (July 17, 2017) the solar array energy production was 344 watt-hours with an atmospheric opacity (Tau) of 0.706 and a solar array dust factor of 0.534. Total odometry is 27.95 miles (44.97 kilometers).”
