Tabular Rocks

         This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 5076 (May 5, 2018).  About 71 degrees wide, this mosaic of some tabular rocks was taken before the rover drove about 3 meters (10 feet) closer to reach a science target within these rocks. Tabular rocks are described as rocks tending to separate into thin, flat, plate-like pieces. 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.
