Endurance Crater Survey
This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity over Sols 162 - 165 (July 8 - 11, 2004). The image is a survey of Endurance Crater, taken from the interior. The rover's tracks can be seen in the left side of the scene, near the rover's Low and High Gain Antennas (LGA and HGA) and parts of the rover deck. Because of the vehicle's high tilt during its acquisition, the mosaic appears slanted.
Pancam's 753nm, 535nm, and 432nm filters were used in making this mosaic. Three versions are provided at full resolution: an approximate true color rendering, a false color rendering which enhances the subtle color differences in the scene, and a stereo anaglyph to simulate the scene in 3D through red-blue glasses.
