Shoemaker Ridge

         This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 3049 (August 21, 2012).  This approximately 133 degree wide mosaic shows an area called Shoemaker Ridge, part of Cape York on the rim of 22 kilometer (14 mile) wide Endeavour Crater. The visible seam between frames (more obvious in the false color version) is caused by dust buildup on Pancam's front sapphire window. 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.
