Diverse Outcrops on 'Matijevic Hill'
January 30, 2014
NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity used its panoramic camera (Pancam) to capture this false-color panorama of the "Matijevic Hill" area on the "Cape York" segment of the western rim of Endeavour Crater. Some of the outcrops that the rover examined are labeled. The breccias are jumbled rocks amalgamated together, interpreted at this site as material tossed by the impact that excavated the crater. The component images for this scene were taken during the interval Nov. 19, 2012, through Dec. 3, 2012. Unannotated versions of this panorama, in false color, approximately true color and stereo, are at http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA16704, http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA16703 and http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA16709.
