Opportunity Microscopic Imager mosaic, sol 3064: spherules
A mosaic of four images captured with Opportunity's Microscopic Imager on sol 3064 (September 6, 2012) shows strange spherules embedded in a fine-grained matrix. At the time, Opportunity was on the inner rim of Endeavour crater at Cape York, exploring a fin-like outcrop.
