Home Plate

         The Spirit rover acquired this mosaic on Sol 743 (Feb. 4, 2006) of Home Plate in the Columbia Hills. The rover was approaching the feature from the North when this image was taken. The field of view spans about 100 degrees. Pancam's 753nm, 535nm, and 482nm filters were used to create this image. Two versions are provided at full resolution: an approximate true color rendering, and a false color rendering to enhance the subtle color differences in the scene.
