Opportunity "Resolution" Panorama, sols 1826-1844

Opportunity "Resolution" Panorama, sols 1826-1844
Opportunity "Resolution" Panorama, sols 1826-1844 This view combines many images taken by Opportunity's panoramic camera (Pancam) from sols 1826 through 1844 (13 March to 1 April 2009). The dark rocky area near the center of the panorama is a small crater, called Resolution. It is one of the freshest-looking (youngest) craters observed by Opportunity on the plains of Meridiani. While this image was being taken, the rover took measurements on an area of outcrop in its workvolume called Cook Islands. Images taken through Pancam filters centered on wavelengths of 753 nanometers, 535 nanometers and 432 nanometers were mixed to produce an approximately true-color panorama. Some visible patterns in dark and light tones are the result of combining frames that were affected by dust on the front sapphire window of the rover's camera. NASA / JPL-Caltech / Cornell
