Lyell - Right Wing

        On Sol 1385 (December 16, 2007) Opportunity made a short drive to the Lyell stratigraphic layer (named for Scottish geologist Charles Lyell) inside Victoria Crater, to get into position to examine the Lyell layer with instruments on the robotic arm. While stopped here, Pancam surveyed the stratigraphic layers visible off her right "wing" (solar panel) from this new vantage point. Dust accumulation on the camera's sapphire window is evident in the mosaic seams, where the less-dusty left side meets the more-dusty right side of each image. Much of this dust was deposited during a severe martian dust storm.

        Three versions are available at full resolution, an approximate true color generated using Pancam's 753 nm, 535 nm, 432 nm filters, a false color stretch, and an anaglyph to simulate the scene in 3D when viewed through red-blue glasses.
