Moving in on Mesilla

Moving in on Mesilla
Moving in on Mesilla Opportunity took this image at La Bajada with her Panoramic Camera (Pancam) in October 2017, before backing into position over the erosional tail target, Mesilla, located in this light-toned outcrop. Look closely and you will see the little nob-like features poking up with the ‘tails’ of material following behind. The Pancam team processed this view in false color, a process that enables scientists to discern various geological elements in the scene.
