The first color picture from Spirit has arrived: a composite image of the rover's horizon as seen from Gusev Crater. It is the highest resolution image ever taken on the surface of another planet. In the background is "Sleepy Hollow," a crater which NASA announced yesterday it has an interest in exploring. More data is necessary before the team can decide where the rover will travel in its first days of operation. Spirit is expected to begin moving late next week.
