This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 2586 (May 3, 2011). Friendship 7 was a NASA Project Mercury spacecraft in which John Glenn in 1962 became the first American to orbit Earth. This crater is approximately 16 meters in diameter.
Pancam's 753 nm, 535 nm, and 432 nm 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.
