Image 4 of 10


This view combines frames taken by the panoramic camera (Pancam) on NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on the rover's 652nd through 663rd Martian days, or sols (Nov. 23 to Dec. 5, 2005), at the edge of 'Erebus Crater.' The mosaic is presented as a polar projection. This type of projection provides a kind of overhead view of all of the surrounding terrain.
