Gumdrop  << back to mosaics


         This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 2612 (May 30, 2011).  Gumdrop is a small crater approximately 6 meters in diameter located on the edge of a dark, filled-in crater visible in orbital images from HiRISE (High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment) aboard MRO (Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter). Gumdrop was the nickname of the Apollo 9 mission. 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.
