        This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 4548 (November 8, 2016). Approximately 31 degrees wide, the field of view is of Pompys Tower, named after Sacagewea's son whose nickname was Pompy. Pancam's 753 nm, 535 nm, and 432 nm filters were used in 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.
