Rim of Endeavour Crater

         This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 2636 (June 24, 2011).  On the long trek to Endeavour Crater, Opportunity periodically took images of the rim visible on the horizon. Here, the rim is approximately 2.1 kilometers away. The apparent tilt of the horizon is because the rover was parked at a tilt when the images were acquired. 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.
