Opportunity Gets Out of the Crater

After a failed attempt, Opportunity finally managed to get out of the crater surrounding its landing spot. Once out it rolled 16.5ft. Opportunity will work on a rock named "Scoop" and a bright patch of land. Spirit is exploring the brim of its crater before going off to explore some distance hills.

"One Step Closer" by the Doobie Brothers was the wake up tune for Spirit, because it is "once step closer" to the rock "Mazatzal." Opportunity woke to "Fly Like an Eagle," by the Steve Miller Band.
