Opportunity Status at end of sol 80

Opportunity spent sol 80, which ended at 12:55 p.m. PDT on April 15, examining the trench it dug on sol 73. The rover's microscopic imager got close-up views of the targets called "Jeff's Choice," "RipX," "Jack Russell," "Beagle Burrow" and "NewRipX" in the trench.

The navigation and panoramic cameras shot images in Opportunity's drive direction toward "Endurance Crater."

The rover's spectrometers gathered data at several of the soil targets. Atmospheric data was collected by the miniature thermal emission spectrometer and panoramic camera.

In the coming sols, Opportunity will make its way to "Fram Crater," a waypoint on the path to Endurance Crater.
