West Knob

         This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit on Sol 1354 (October 24, 2007).  About a 57 degrees wide view, Pancam is looking northwest from her location to observe the eastern facing slope of a ridge that had been tentatively called West Knob before later being renamed Tsiolkovsky. Spirit's Pancams also imaged Tsiolkovsky ridge almost two Earth years later on Sol 1893 after positioning herself between Tsiolkovsky and the western ridge of Home Plate. Pancam's 753 nm filter was used in making this mosaic.  Two versions are provided at full resolution: a mosaic made from the left eye only, and a stereo anaglyph for 3D viewing through red-blue glasses.
