Lyell - Aft

        On Sol 1390 (December 21, 2007) Opportunity continued to survey her surroundings while an in situ investigation of the Lyell stratigraphic layer (named for Scottish geologist Charles Lyell) was being conducted on the slopes of Victoria Crater. Pancam's view is behind the rover looking upslope toward the rim of Victoria Crater, and includes wheel tracks as well as Pancam's sundial calibration target. Dust accumulation on the camera's sapphire window can be seen 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.
