Methuselah   << back to mosaics


         The Spirit rover acquired this mosaic of a rock outcrop on Sol 485 (May 15, 2005). Some of the rocks visible are eroding out of the small ridge. The rover's tracks are visible on the back side of the ridge as well.
         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.
