Drive Direction

        This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 1349 (November 9, 2007).  This color survey was obtained to help decide drive paths to Cape Verde. The smoky appearance along the seams of the mosaic is due to dust deposited on Pancam's optics during a dust storm. Pancam's 753nm, 535nm, and 432nm filters were used in this mosaic.  Two versions are available below at full resolution: an approximate true color rendering, and a false color stretch to enhance the subtle color differences in the scene.
