Tikal extension

        This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit on Sol 257 (September 22, 2004), and covers roughly 45 degrees in height. Target Tikal was named for the ancient Mayan city in Guatemala. This three-frame mosaic was an addition to a larger mosaic taken on sol 241.  Two versions are provided at full resolution, an approximate true color generated using Pancam's 753 nm, 535 nm, 432 nm filters, and a false color stretch.
