This cylindrical projection was taken by NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on April 28, 2004. On that sol, Opportunity sat on the rippled dunes a ways from the rim of 'Endurance Crater.'

This cylindrical-perspective projection was constructed from a sequence of images taken by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity's navigation camera on the rover's 93rd sol on Mars. The mosaic was created from three images from the camera's right eye. The camera acquired the images at approximately 12:27 Local Solar Time, or around 8:22 AM Pacific Daylight Time on April 28, 2004. On that sol, Opportunity sat about 75 meters (246 feet) away from the rim of "Endurance Crater."

See PIA05849 for 3-D view and PIA05850 for left eye view of this right eye cylindrical-perspective projection.
