Driving toward the heat shield

        This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 319 (December 16, 2004), covering roughly 30 degrees of the horizon. This drive-direction imaging was used for planning as well as capturing Opportunity's discarded heat shield. Other mosaics of the heat shield were taken on sols 315, 317, and 326.  Two versions are provided at full resolution, an approximate true color generated using Pancam's 753 nm, 535 nm, 432 nm filters, and a false color stretch.
