Opportunity: Pancam checks Spirit Mound

4502-pancam1P527850174ESFCT00P2560L1M1Sol 4502, September 22, 2016. Above is a Pancam composite showing part of Spirit Mound and one of the small rocky “ridges” leading away from it. Pancam took a fully filtered set of images for the two leftmost frames (false-colored by Holger Isenberg), and just single-filtered frames for the rest. (More Pancam frames on this rocky area may follow on later sols.)

1P527850217ESFCT00P2561L1M1At right are two Pancam shots, both less than full-frame, on boulders lying close to Spirit Mound. The two boulders and many rocks near them show ventifacts — sculpting by windblown dust.
