Bottomless Bay

         This image taken by the panoramic camera on Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity shows the north face of Cape St. Mary, across Bottomless Bay. Cape St. Mary is an approximately 15 meter (50 foot) high promonotory in the west side of Victoria Crater. The crater itself is about 800 meters (one-half mile) wide, and lies over 5 kilometers (almost 4 miles) away from Opportunity's Eagle Crater landing site.

         This mosaic was taken on sol 1037 (December 24, 2006) through Pancam's 753 nm, 535 nm, 432 nm filters and is available in approximate true color (shown above) and false color versions.
