Onverwacht  << back to mosaics


         This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 2749 (October 18, 2011).  Having arrived at Endeavour Crater after a three-year trek, Opportunity was searching for north-facing slopes on which to spend the martian winter to maximize solar input to her panels. Onverwacht, named for a South African greenstone formation, is an area at Cape York on the rim of Endeavour Crater that shows a variety of spectral and geomorphic features. 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.
