SUMMARY: After being on the road for several weeks, NASA's Spirit rover has finally reached the edge of the crater "Bonneville". The rover made a total journey of 335 metres to reach the crater, but it did stop to analyze a few rocks along the way. This crater doesn't have exposed rocks on its edge, like the one that Opportunity landed in, but there are some interesting rock features on the far side that scientists would like to analyze. During night, Spirit took images of the sky, including the constellation Orion.
