Rock Tails

         This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 4888 (October 24, 2017).  Taken during twilight after the sun set over the local horizon in order to avoid poor lighting conditions that would negatively affect the view, this approximately 78 degree wide mosaic is of a nearby outcrop of what appears to be wind caused "rock tails". Pancam's 601 nm filter was used in making this mosaic.  Two versions are provided at full resolution: a mosaic made from the left eye only, and a stereo anaglyph for 3D viewing through red-blue glasses.
