"8 more years, starting tomorrow."

Tonight at about 9pm Pacific (roughly 13:15 Local Solar Time at Meridiani), Opportunity will have spent 8 years on the surface.

Our SOWG chair put it best: 

After having spent 8 years doing surface operations, we need a recharge sol.

This is, of course, in reference to our current ambitious science campaign and trying to do it with a very dusty rover in a very cold winter. More on this in Part 8 of the previously-promised-I'd-have-this-done series of our time on Cape York.
