Amazing picture of the comet Siding Spring taken from NASA'rover Opportunity from martian surface

Dear readers, and followers,

as you know, All mars orbiter, as the Indian spacecraft, has been repositioned in order to reduce the effect of and not be disturbed by the flyby of the comet Siding Spring. The other orbiters from NASA orbiters around Mars confirmed their healthy status Sunday after each took shelter behind Mars during a period of risk from dust released by a passing comet. The rover opportunity which is on Mar's land took an amazing picture of the comet Siding Spring.

This incredible image showing the comet Siding Spring in the Martian sky was taken by Nasa's opportunity rover on the surface of Mars - the first ever image of a comet from another planet. It is hoped the event will provide researchers with an unprecedented opportunity to gather data on comets.
