Gilbert Block

         The Opportunity rover acquired this mosaic of a block within the Gilbert area on Sol 1427 (Jan. 28, 2008).   Gilbert, named for geologist G. K. Gilbert, is one of the lower layers in the stratigraphy of Victoria Crater.  This block was imaged on sols 1425, 1428, and 1429 as well, at different times of day, in order to view the block under varying lighting conditions.  The mosaic's field of view is about 30 degrees across and about 15 degrees high.
         This mosaic was created using Pancam's 753-nm, 535-nm, and 432-nm filters. Two versions are offered here at full resolution: an approximate true color rendering, and a false color stretch to bring out subtle color differences in the scene.
