This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 3064 (September 5, 2012). The rover took this image while it paused to study an outcrop target called Kirkwood. The field of view is approximately 147 degrees wide and shows the target in context at Shoemaker Ridge on Cape York. Near the center of this mosaic, part of the robotic arm or Instrument Deployment Device (IDD) can be seen. It appears to be cut off because the arm was moved during the aquisition of the frames near the rover.
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.
