Happy Anniversary, Opportunity

Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity will be celebrating its third anniversary on mars next week. Opportunity  landed on 25 January 2004 on Meridiani Planum. To commemorate the anniversary NASA is hosting a photo contest to choose the best Spirit and Opportunity pictures (out of a pre-selected 16 images), then will show the winner on the MER home page on 24 January.

My vote is for Sprit's picture of the Sun setting over the Gusev Crater -- lonely, melancholic, elegant.
