Opportunity's drive direction panorama, sol 2300 (July 13, 2010)
Opportunity gazed eastward to capture this four-image mosaic of her future drive direction on sol 2300 (July 13, 2010). The color from the image is based on only two filters, one ultraviolet/blue and the other infrared. The blue color of the sky is not real, but results from the combination of the odd filters and the lighting conditions. It results from relatively bright color of the Meridiani sand in infrared wavelengths combined with the dark color of the late afternoon eastern sky in that wavelength during Mars' winter.
