Opportunity: Descending Cape Tribulation

4665-pancam2Sol 4665, March 9, 2017. Having driven more than 20 meters (66 feet) south in the last day, Opportunity used its Pancam as a forward scouting imager. The three frames used for this composite were taken using Pancam’s red-sensitive filter, so the handful of places ahead on the downslope that appear light in tone have a relatively strong reddish tint. Note the low outcrop lying ahead. Click image to enlarge it.

Opportunity raw images, its latest mission status, a location map, and atmospheric opacity, known as tau.
