Rear Wheel Tracks

         This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit on Sol 044 (February 16, 2004).  This is a look at the nearfield tracks to the rear of the rover after a drive. The hardware at the bottom is the edge of Spirit's rear solar panel. Pancam's 601nm, 535nm, and 432nm 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.
