Victoria Rim Sand Streaks
rover acquired this mosaic of sand streaks just inside Victoria Crater's rim on Sol 1096 (Feb. 22, 2007).
The color differences of the streaks (darker sand near the base of the cliffs,
lighter further down) could lend evidence to questions of composition, sand
transport, and crater erosion. The field of view is about 30 degrees across
and 15 degrees high.
This mosaic was
acquired in Pancam's 753-nm, 535-nm, and 432-nm filters. Two versions are
offered here at full resolution: an approximate true color rendering, and a false color stretch to bring out subtle color differences in the scene.
