Payson outcrop, Erebus Crater

September 05, 2016

Opportunity acquired this Pancam panorama of the Payson outcrop on the western edge of Erebus Crater during Opportunity's sol 744 (Feb. 26, 2006). From this vicinity at the northern end of the outcrop, layered rocks are observed in the crater wall, which is about 1 meter thick. The view also shows rocks disrupted by the crater-forming impact event and subjected to erosion over time. To the left of the outcrop, a flat, thin layer of spherule-rich soils overlies more outcrop materials. Pancam took 28 separate exposures of this scene using four different filters. The resulting panorama covers about 90 degrees of terrain around the rover. This approximately true-color rendering was made using the camera's 753-nanometer, 535-nanometer and 423-nanometer filters. Image-to-image seams have been eliminated from the sky portion of the mosaic to better simulate the vista a person standing on Mars would see.
