This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 1899 (May 27, 2009). The field of view of ripples is approximately 30 degrees wide. The visible seam between frames (more obvious in the false color version) is caused by dust buildup on Pancam's front sapphire window.
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. Because dust on the right side of the Pancam lenses was an issue at this point in the mission, the mosaic is taken using only the left half of the frame.
