This image, from the panoramic camera, is an approximately true color rendering of the slope of "Endurance Crater," which NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity is currently exploring. Between sols 143 and 148 (June 18 to June 23, 2004), the rover's rock abrasion tool ground into three targets: "London" in the "D" layer (top) is 4.5 millimeters (0.18 inches) deep; "Virginia" in the "C" layer (middle) is 4.3 millimeters (0.17 inches) deep; and "Cobble Hill" in the "B" layer (bottom) is 3 millimeters (0.12 inches) deep. The shadow from the rover's camera mast is visible in the lower right corner of the image. This image was captured using the 601-, 535- and 482-nanometer filters.
