Go Back

HiRISE color swaths over the Opportunity field site HiRISE images contain a central, skinny color swath about 1 kilometer wide. Since Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter arrived at Mars, it has fairly thoroughly covered the Opportunity field area with color images, with only a few gaps. The area around Victoria crater and the western rim of Endeavour crater were repeatedly imaged.
