Opportunity "Erebus" Panorama, sols 652-663
This is the Opportunity panoramic camera's "Erebus Rim" panorama, acquired on sols 652 to 663 (23 Nov to 5 Dec 2005), as NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity was exploring sand dunes and outcrop rocks in Meridiani Planum. The panorama originally consisted of 635 separate images in 4 different Pancam filters, and covers 360 degrees of terrain around the rover and the full rover deck. Since the time that this panorama was acquired, and while engineers have been diagnosing and testing Opportunity's robotic arm, the panorama has been expanded to include more than 1,300 images of this terrain through all of the Pancam multispectral filters. It is the largest panorama acquired by either rover during the mission.

Most NASA images are in the public domain. Reuse of this image is governed by NASA's image use policy.
