Original Caption Released with Image:

This mosaic was stitched together using images from the Navigation Camera, or Navcam, on NASA's Opportunity rover. The scene shows the rover's tracks made in Perseverance Valley between Sols 5,000 and 5,030.

The mosaic has a resolution of about 1 centimeter per pixel; the scene width is 66 feet (20 meters) while the scene height is 39 feet (12 meters). The rover wheel tracks are about 3 feet (1 meter) apart. Shading differences between frames have been adjusted so subtle surface details are more visible.

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of Caltech in Pasadena, California, manages the Mars Exploration Rover Project for NASA's Science Mission Directorate in Washington.
