Perseverance Valley Perspective View

Perseverance Valley Perspective View
Perseverance Valley Perspective View In a 3D perspectuve composed of data from the HiRISE camera on Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, Perseverance Valley is clearly visible just left of center top and as it meanders below the notch in the rim of Endeavour crater. This view was processed in false color and then vertically exaggerated so that the Opportunity science team can better see the valley and the channels that branch from it. In reality, the valley, which stretches for about 200 meters, is actually very shallow, sloping down toward the floor of Endeavour Crater at about 15 degrees. Opportunity ended its mission about halfway down the valley. NASA / JPL-Caltech / University of Arizona
