Crumble   << back to mosaics


         The Spirit rover acquired this mosaic of ground near the rover on Sol 457 (Apr. 16, 2005). This mosaic covered two targets, refered to as "Almonds" and "Scruff2," and was named Crumble due to the texture given by the mix of soil and small rocks. The mosaic shows about 70 centimeters of ground near the rover, and the small rock to the left is about 10 centimeters wide.
         This mosaic was acquired in 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.
