This is Victoria Crater – one of the places Opportunity spent so much time exploring.
In this big image taken from orbit you can see the plucky rover – if you take the – er – opportunity to check out this legend, you should be able to find it.
The High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment on MRO - or Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter - is able to resolve objects as small as three feet across.
These pictures helped the rover team decide whether a safe path existed for the rover to enter the 2 and a half mile wide crater.
