En Route to Cape Verde

        This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 1500 (April 12, 2008).  The view shows a portion of Cape Verde, taken while the rover paused during a drive across the slippery slope of Victoria Crater, away from Gilbert and toward Cape Verde. 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.
