Small Crater

         This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 818 (May 13, 2006).  This was taken to examine some exposed outcrop on the rim of a small crater Opportunity passed on its trek to Victoria crater. The field of view spans about 90 degrees. 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.
