This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 2329 (August 12, 2010). This dark area of gravel was spotted in orbital imaging (HiRISE).
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.
