Kahu Pohutu

         The Opportunity rover obtained this mosaic on Sol 312 (Dec. 9, 2004) using Pancam's 753 nm, 535 nm, and 432 nm filters. Opportunity was, at this point in the mission, heading out of Endurance crater. This mosaic was taken in order to have a high resolution image of the thin lines in the bedrock, called laminations, as well as a view of the holes dug by the Rock Abrasion Tool (RAT), seen at the top right. The field of view is about 15 degrees across and 30 degrees high. Two versions are offered at full resolution: an approximate true color mosaic, and a false color stretch to bring out subtle color differences in the scene.
