This approximate true-color image mosaic from the panoramic camera on the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity shows the target nicknamed "Hamersley" within "Fram Crater." The nature of the outcrop material seen in this location is visibly disrupted. Some areas also have layering that may be distinctive from what scientists saw previously in "Eagle Crater." Opportunity is traveling toward a large crater dubbed "Endurance." It may return to Fram for further analysis of its rocks and soils if time permits. The images in this mosaic were taken on sol 87 with the panoramic camera's 480-, 530- and 600-nanometer filters.
