Crater of Clues
June 17, 2004
This 360-degree panorama shows Endurance Crater and the surrounding plains of Meridiani Planum. This is the second large panoramic camera mosaic of Endurance, and was obtained from a high point near the crater's south rim. It took seven sols to complete this panorama (sols 117-123), using 81 separate camera positions and six filters per position. The composite shown here is an approximate true-color rendering generated from the panoramic camera's 750-, 530- and 480-nanometer filters. The mosaic, shown at full-resolution, is 22,780 x 2,723 pixels in size.
