The 'Columbia Hills' in Color

NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit used its panoramic camera to take the images that make up this full-resolution mosaic of the "Columbia Hills." Spirit acquired these images on sol 131 (May 16, 2004), when it sat less than one kilometer (0.62 miles) away from its target, the base of the hills. Spirit will reach the base before sol 160 and begin an in-depth exploration of the interesting geologic features that make up these hills.

The image is approximately 5,300 pixels wide by 400 pixels high and was assembled from six adjacent sets of panoramic camera images. It is an approximate true-color rendering made from the camera's 750-, 530- and 480- nanometer filters. A small amount of image filtering was applied to bring out some of the subtle, geologic details found in the hills.
