Cabo Corrientes Long Baseline

         The Opportunity rover acquired this mosaic of Cabo Corrientes on Sol 1108 (March 7, 2007) as part of a long baseline imaging project.  Cabo Corrientes, a rock outcrop protruding into Victoria Crater, was one of several promontories imaged by Opportunity from locations several meters apart.  In doing this, the images provide information on the size and distance of the relatively far away promontories (much the way the separated left and right eyes of the Pancam allow for anaglyph images, but on a larger scale).  This then gives very precise measurements on the size and shape of Victoria Crater. The field of view is roughly 90 degrees across and about 22 degrees at its highest.
         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. Also available is an overhead view of Victoria Crater, showing the approximate location of the rover at the time this image was taken.
