Shelter Island west

         This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 2033 (October 12, 2009).  Opportunity circumnavigated the meteorite named Shelter Island to view it from several positions. This mosaic is from the west position. These images were shot "blind" after the rover moved, and were pointed high because the rover didn't end its drive in the expected position. Thus only part of the meteorite is captured in this mosaic. This west view of Shelter Island was reshot as a single frame on Sol 2034. Pancam's 753nm, 535nm, and 432nm filters were used in making this mosaic.  Two versions are provided at full resolution: an approximate true color rendering, and a false color rendering which enhances the subtle color differences in the scene.
