Erebus Panorama (Left Eye in Color)
This is the left-eye member of a color stereo pair showing the landscape surrounding NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity at the edge of "Erebus Crater" while the rover's panoramic camera captured frames for a full-circle panorama on Opportunity's sols 652 to 663 (Nov. 23 to Dec. 5, 2005 ). The scene includes finely-layered outcrop rocks, wind ripples, and small cobbles and grains along the rim of the wide but shallow crater. The full panorama, including more of the rover deck than shown here, is at PIA03270 .
This view is a composite of images taken through the camera's left lens using 430-nanometer, 530-nanometer and 750-nanometer filters. It is presented in a cylindrical-perspective projection.
