Opportunity seen from orbit - as well as "Block Island"

Emily at Planetary Society site posted a new image shot from above with the MRO orbiter. This image shows Opportunity scooting across the Martian dunes, as well as the "Block Island" meteorite. It says that the rover backtracked to check out the meteorite, so I'm wondering if it was discovered from orbit, then the rover went back to peek at it? Not sure about that, but pretty interesting if this was first seen from above.
