Palenque  << back to mosaics


         This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit on Sol 291 (October 27, 2004), and stretches about 30 degrees wide.  The feature was named for an archeological site in Mexico. The shadow of the top of the Pancam Mast Assembly (PMA) can be seen at the bottom center.  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.
