Rodrigo de Escobar

        This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 2484 (January 19, 2011). Rodrigo de Escobar, named for a member of Christopher Columbus' Santa Maria crew, is a ray of debris from Santa Maria crater, one of two Haomate rays (from the indigenous Caribbean Taino language). Pancam's 753nm, 535nm, and 432nm filters were used in this mosaic.  Two versions are available below at full resolution: an approximate true color rendering, and a false color stretch to enhance the subtle color differences in the scene.
