This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 4822 (August 17, 2017). Approximately 46 degrees wide, this mosaic is of a patch of outcrop near the rover. The drastic color and brightness variation in each component image of this mosaic is caused by strong scattered light/glints across the lens of Pancam from the Sun being so low on the horizon at the time the mosaic was taken.
Pancam's 753 nm, 535 nm, and 432 nm 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.
