NASA’s Mars Exploration Rover Spirit used its panoramic camera to take the images combined into this mosaic view of the rover. The downward-looking view omits the mast on which the camera is mounted. It shows dust accumulation on Spirit’s solar panels. The images were taken through the camera’s 600-, 530- and 480-nanometer filters during Spirit’s 329th and 330th martian days, or sols (Dec. 7 and 7, 2004).
