Erebus Rim

         The Opportunity Pancam cameras acquired this panorama near the rim of Erebus Crater on sol 593 (Sept. 24, 2005). In this image, patches of outcrop are revealed between dunes.

         The panorama consists of 30 separate images in 4 different Pancam filters, and covers about 200 degrees of terrain around the rover. Two versions of the mosaic are provided at full resolution: an approximate true color rendering using Pancam's 753nm, 535nm, and 432nm filters, and a false color rendering using the same filters, but presented to enhance the subtle color differences between different rock and soil units in the scene. Image-to-image seams have been eliminated from the sky portion of the mosaic to better simulate the vista a person standing on Mars would see.
