Rocks and Divot

         The Opportunity rover acquired this mosaic on Sol 373 (Feb. 10, 2005). When the image was taken, it was thought the two rocks in the midground could be meteorites. The ripples were the type of terrain Opportunity would later drive across to reach Victoria Crater. The distances between ripple crests in this image range between one and two meters.
         This mosaic was created using Pancam's 753-nm, 535-nm, and 432-nm filters. Two versions are offered here at full resolution: an approximately true color rendering, and a false color stretch to bring out subtle color differences in the scene.
