Right Eye for Stereo Pair of Spirit's 'Everest' Panorama

September 14, 2006
NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit used its panoramic camera (Pancam) to record a 360-degree vista, dubbed the "Everest" panorama, from the top of "Husband Hill" in early October 2005. This view is the right-eye member of a stereo pair for creating three-dimensional versions of the Everest panorama.

The images combined into this mosaic were taken through the Pancam's blue R1 filter during Spirit's 620th through 622nd Martian days (Oct. 1 through Oct. 3, 2005). Geometric and brightness adjustments have been applied. The view is presented in a cylindrical-perspective projection with rover tilt removed.
