Soil Twilight

         This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity between Sols 4942 (December 18, 2017) and 4957 (January 2, 2018). The rocky soil of this outcrop directly in front of the rover was imaged at twilight after the sun set over a nearby hilltop. The rocky outcrop showcased above is also visible in the albedo panorama from Sol 4924 where it splits on either side. 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.
