Heat shield context

        This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 326 (December 23, 2004). This is one of a series of mosaics of Opportunity's discarded heat shield, taken over a series of drives to approach it; other mosaics of the heat shield were taken on sols 315, 317, and 319.  This view is roughly 45 degrees across and 30 degrees in height.   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.
