This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit on Sol 688 (December 9, 2005). It was taken to examine what might possibly be a crack in the ground.
Pancam's 753nm, 535nm, and 432nm filters were used in making this mosaic. Two versions are provided at full resolution: an approximate true color rendering, and a false color rendering which enhances the subtle color differences in the scene.
