Original Caption Released with Image:

Spirit took this panorama of images, covering a field of view just under 180 degrees from left to right, with the panoramic camera on Martian days (sols) 594, 595, and 597 (Sept. 4, 5, and 7, 2005) of its exploration of Gusev Crater on Mars. This is a false-color rendering generated using the camera's 750-nanometer, 530-nanometer, and 430-nanometer filters.
