Bonestell Panorama

Martian panorama

This is one small section of the high-resolution “Bonestell” panorama that Spirit has nearly completed from its winter resting spot on “Home Plate” in Gusev Crater. Only a few sections remain to be sent down to Earth before the panorama is finished. But we’re not likely to hear much from any of the Mars missions during the next few weeks while the Earth and Mars are in solar conjunction, meaning the Sun is directly between the two worlds, making communication difficult sidor.

These images were carefully assembled by James Canvin; see his site for much higher-resolution looks.
