Whim Creek

         This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 3029 (August 1, 2012).  The image shows an area called Whim Creek, a fracture near the northeast side of Cape York on the rim of 22 kilometer (14 mile) wide Endeavour Crater. The field of view is approximately 306 degrees wide. Part of the rover's Low Gain and High Gain antennas (LGA and HGA) can be seen in the left side of the view. Pancam's 753nm, 535nm, and 432nm filters were used in making this mosaic.  Three versions are provided at full resolution: an approximate true color rendering, a false color rendering which enhances the subtle color differences in the scene, and a stereo anaglyph for 3D viewing through red-blue glasses.
