Cape St. Vincent (west face)

         On Sol 1167 (May 6, 2007), Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity took this mosaic of Cape St. Vincent, a promontory in the north wall of Victoria Crater. The 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.

         This image was taken from the Cape of Good Hope (image below). Two versions are available at full resolution, an approximate true color generated using Pancam's 753 nm, 535 nm, 432 nm filters, and a false color stretch.
