Oppy takes a siesta on Mars. Bob Zimmerman, BehindtheBlack.com

Since my June 23 update,, Opportunity has continued its careful reconnaissance of the area above the head of Perseverance Valley. They have been doing this partly to understand what is there, and partly because of an issue with the left-front wheel.

It appears though they are satisfied that the rover is still capable of travel, they now need to wait through July because the Sun is presently moving between the Mars and Earth, making communications more difficult. Even so, it is presently unclear if they will risk taking the rover into the valley itself.
