Vertical scan of Burns Cliff

        This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 288 (November 14, 2004). Burns Cliff was named after the late planetary scientist, Roger Burns. This view is about 30 degrees in height, but only about 8 degrees wide, and shows the layering present in the cliffside.  Two versions are provided at full resolution, an approximate true color generated using Pancam's 753 nm, 535 nm, 432 nm filters, and a false color stretch.
