The component images for this stereo, 360-degree panorama were taken by the navigation camera on NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity after the rover drove about 97 feet (29.5 meters) during the mission's 3,642nd Martian day, or sol (April 22, 2014).

The vista appears three-dimensional when seen through blue-red glasses with the red lens on the left.

Opportunity drove southwestward on Sol 3642, so the tracks from this end-of-drive position recede toward the northeast. For scale, the distance between the two parallel tracks is about 3.3 feet (1 meter).

The position is just west of the ridgeline of the west rim of Endeavour Crater.

This stereo anaglyph combines the left-eye view in Figure 1 and the right-eye view in http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA18098.
