Santa Maria Palos Position One (right)
This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sols 2456-2461 (December 21-25, 2010). Pancam's 753 nm (left camera) and 754 nm (right camera) filters were used in making this mosaic. Palos is a location on the west rim of Santa Maria Crater chosen for long-baseline stereo imaging. This mosaic is was taken in the second of two Palos positions. Three versions are provided at full resolution, one taken by the left camera, one taken by the right camera, and a composite short-baseline stereo anaglyph. There is a companion color view taken from the left at Position One. As Opportunity circumnavigated Santa Maria, other views were acquired, including a view from the south rim as well as left and right long-baseline mosaics from Position Two to the east.
