Sao Pantaleao Ray

         This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 3121 (November 3, 2012). While the rover sat near Sao Pantaleao Crater, it took this image of one of the rays of ejecta material extending away from the impact. This view covers about 6 meters (20 feet) of ground. The rover's Low Gain Antenna (LGA) and part of its right solar panel can be seen. 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.
