Mount Jefferson

         This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 4587 (December 18, 2016).  The about 75 degres wide view is of a hill to the south called Mount Jefferson. The bad lens flare in the rightmost two frames of this mosaic are due to sunlight being scattered into the camera by dust on the front window of the camera. Pancam's 753 nm, 535 nm, and 432 nm 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.
