Opportunity: Passage to Inde

5076-pancamFC1P578895176EFFD2EXP2371L5M1_L2L5L5L7L7Sols 5076-77, May 5-6, 2018. Mission controllers used the rover’s Pancam to shoot five multi-filtered frames to make a false-color composite image of flat-lying tabular rocks at the La Salinera site in Perseverance Valley.

Mission control then drove Opportunity about 10 feet (3 meters) southeast to approach one of the tabular rocks which has been dubbed Inde.

At top is the pre-drive composite, with Inde shown by the arrow. At right is the post-drive view, taken as mission scientists prepare to investigate the rock. False-color Pancam reconstructions are by Holger Isenberg; click either image to enlarge it.
