Drive Direction

         This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 1169 (May 8, 2007).   Although this imaging was supposed to occur post-drive, the drive did not happen due to a joint problem in the IDD (Instrument Deployment Device). Pancam's 753nm, 535nm, and 432nm filters were used in making this mosaic.  Two versions are provided at full resolution: an approximate true color rendering, and a false color rendering which enhances the subtle color differences in the scene.
