Sheba, named for a small lake in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt on Earth, is an area of outcrop encountered at Cape York on the rim of Endeavour Crater. The team was surveying the area for north-facing slopes in preparation for maximizing solar energy for Opportunity during the upcoming winter in the southern hemisphere of Mars.This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 2743 (October 12, 2011).
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.
