This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 3346 (June 22, 2013). The image was taken during a drive, with the purpose of providing a better look at the dark object in the right frame. Because of the uncertainty involved when imaging something small during a drive, this mosaic used two frames to increase the chances of hitting the dark rock. The field of view is approximately 27° wide.
Pancam's 753nm, 535nm, and 432nm filters were used in making 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.
