Anniversary Tracks

         This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 3539 (January 7, 2014). The approximately 93 degree wide image tells the story of Opportunity's arrival at Endeavour Crater, from the exploration of Cape York to the journey south to Solander Point. In the distance is Cape York, barely visible as a lighter toned area, where the rover first reached the rim of Endeavour. To the left and closer to the camera is Knobbys Head, an area of crater rim where the rover briefly stopped for slope analysis and science. To take this image, Opportunity had to drive high enough on Solander Point to have an unobstructed view of the area. The rover's more recent tracks can be seen in the left side of this mosaic. Pancam's 753nm, 535nm, and 432nm filters were used in making this mosaic.  Two versions are provided at full resolution: an approximate true color rendering, and a false color rendering which enhances the subtle color differences in the scene.
