The 'Columbia Hills' in Color
May 29, 2004
NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit used its panoramic camera to take the images that make up this full-resolution mosaic of the Columbia Hills. Spirit acquired these images on sol 131 (May 16, 2004), when it sat less than one kilometer (0.62 miles) away from its target, the base of the hills. Spirit will reach the base before sol 160 and begin an in-depth exploration of the interesting geologic features that make up these hills.
