This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 4315 (March 14, 2016). Approximately 40 degrees wide, this very colorful view shows some of the disturbed regolith featuring great examples of the red material Opportunity's science team was hoping to examine at Pvt Josheph Whitehouse. The Martian soil became disturbed as Opportunity's wheels were slipping while climbing the steep slopes of Knudsen Ridge.
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.
