Browsing at 'Bylot'

This mosaic, featuring the rock target dubbed Bylot, was acquired by NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on sol 194 (Aug. 9, 2004). It consists of four images taken by the rover's microscopic imager. The spherules shown here are less round than the blueberries seen previously in Endurance Crater, perhaps because the minerals coating them are more resistant to erosion. Dark sand is partially covering the rock.
