Burns Cliff

         Opportunity captured this view of "Burns Cliff" after driving right to the base of this southeastern portion of the inner wall of "Endurance Crater." The view combines frames taken by Opportunity's panoramic camera between the rover's 287th and 294th martian days (Nov. 13 to 20, 2004).

         This is a composite of 46 different images, each acquired in seven different Pancam filters. To the right are approximate true-color and false color versions generated from the panoramic camera's 753nm, 535nm, and 432nm filters. The mosaic spans more than 180 degrees side to side. Also provided is a color stereo anaglyph, offering a three-dimensional view when seen through red/blue glasses. Because of this wide-angle view, the cliff walls appear to bulge out toward the camera. In reality the walls form a gently curving, continuous surface.
