Rock on the Range

April 7, 2004
This mosaic of images from the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity panoramic camera looks to the southeast from inside Eagle Crater. This was among the first peeks out into the plains, revealing the enigmatic dark feature dubbed Bounce rock, seen on the left side of the mosaic. This feature is right next to one of the large bounce marks that the airbag-packaged rover made as it was bouncing across the plains during landing. This enhanced color mosaic was made on sol 36 from the camera's the infrared (750 nanometer), green (530 nanometer), and violet (430 nanometer) filters.
