Duyfken Crater

         This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 3314 (May 20, 2013). The image shows a small crater between Cape York and Solander Point. Because it was taken during a drive, the crater is not centered in the field of view. The name Duyfken, or "little dove" in English, refers to a Dutch ship built in the late 16th century which made the first European discovery of Australia. Pancam's 753nm, 535nm, and 432nm filters were used to make this mosaic.  Three versions are provided at full resolution: an approximate true color rendering, a false color rendering which enhances the subtle color differences in the scene, and a stereo anaglyph for 3D viewing through red blue glasses.
