Outcrop   << back to mosaics


        This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 4709 (April 23, 2017). Approximately 42 degrees wide, this mosaic shows a patch of outcrop to the northwest of the rover. The center, bottom frame of this mosaic was taken on the following sol (4710) at a slightly different time of day, which is why the frame does not match perfectly. Pancam's 753 nm, 535 nm, and 432 nm filters were used in 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.
