Opportunity Status at end of sol 59
Opportunity spent sol 59, which ended at 10:04 p.m. PST, placing the Moessbauer spectrometer on the bright material it approached yestersol, and conducting more remote sensing observations.
This relatively light workload allowed the rover to recover energy for the next sol's activities. Those will include completing an alpha particle X-ray spectrometer read on the same soil target and initiating the panoramic mosaic image from the rover's current position.
The wake-up tune for the sol was "59th Street Bridge Song (Feeling Groovy)" by Simon and Garfunkel.
