This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 020 (February 13, 2004). Taken from within Eagle Crater, about 5 meters (roughly 16 feet) of outcrop, named Charlie, is shown in this image. Outcrop Charlie was part three of four of the science team's outcrop imaging for geomorphology/stratigraphy. Part one, two, and four are Alpha, Bravo, and Delta, respectively. Pancam's 753 nm, 535 nm, and 432 nm filters were used in making this mosaic. Two versions are provided at full resolution: an approximate true color rendering, and a false color rendering which enhances the subtle color differences in the scene.
