Outcrop   << back to mosaics


         The Spirit rover imaged this outcrop on Sol 1234 (June 23, 3007). The light-toned material was of interest here, and an experiment was conducted in which the rover crushed some of the material with a wheel in order to examine the interior. These images were acquired using Pancam's 753-nm, 535-nm, and 432-nm filters. The view spans roughly 30 degrees across and 10 degrees high, covering about 1 meter of ground in front of the rover. Two versions are offered here at full resolution: an approximately true color rendering, and a false color stretch to bring out subtle color differences in the scene.
