This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 2699 (August 27, 2011). Stoughton is named for part of the Abitibi Greenstone Belt on Earth. The terrain is at the edge of Odyssey Crater (about 20 meters in diameter), which is on the rim of Endeavour Crater (approximately 22 kilometers in diameter).
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.
