Mars Rover, 'Opportunity' at Meridiani Planum

After an interplanetary journey of nearly 300 million miles, Opportunity bounced down on the martian surface at about 9:05 pm PST Saturday, its final plunge cushioned by airbags.

Explanation: Described as unlike anything ever seen before on Mars, the first stunning color view from Opportunity shows something unbelievable ... the first-ever eXtreme croquet course on Mars !!!

Part of the rover's deck is in the foreground while circular impressions and drag marks made by the airbags are visible just beyond it.
