Cape of Good Hope Postcard

         On Sol 1104 (March 3, 2007), Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity took this postcard from the Cape of Good Hope in Victoria Crater. In this view, the upper portions of Cabo Corrientes and Cape Desire are revealed behind the edge of the Cape of Good Hope promontory in the foreground. The view covers roughly 80° in the Southwest direction. Victoria Crater is about 800 meters (one-half mile) wide, and lies over 5 kilometers (almost 4 miles) away from Opportunity's Eagle Crater landing site.

        Two versions are available at full resolution, an approximate true color generated using Pancam's 601 nm, 535 nm, 482 nm filters, and a false color stretch. Also provided is an annotated HiRISE image showing the rover's approximate location at the time of imaging.
