This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 3051 (August 23, 2012). While the rover traversed south along the inner edge of Cape York, it took this image of a promontory higher up on the ridge. The field of view is approximately 27 degrees wide. 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. 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.
