Red rock seen on red planet by greyish white rover

Another potential meteorite has been spotted on the surface of Mars by the Opportunity Mars Rover. The metallic rock, around the size of a toaster, has been named Oileán Ruaidh after Red Island off the coast of North West Ireland. If confirmed, it will be Oppy’s fifth meteorite. Stuart Atkinson has produced an enhanced image of the rock here.
