Textures of 'Santa Maria' Crater, Sol 2476
Textures of 'Santa Maria' Crater, Sol 2476

This image from NASA's Mars Exploration Rover at the edge of "Santa Maria" crater shows diverse textures of the crater. Contrast has been enhanced to emphasize the textures.

Opportunity used its navigation camera to record this view during the 2,476th Martian day, or sol, of the rover's work on Mars (Jan. 10, 2011). The rover's position was close to the crater's lip on the southeastern edge of the crater. Santa Maria is about 90 meters (295 feet) in diameter.

View of 'Santa Maria' Crater from Western Rim, Sol 2454 (Stereo)

This 360-degree, stereo mosaic of images from the navigation camera on NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity shows the view from the western rim of "Santa Maria" crater on the the 2,454th Martian day, or sol, of Opportunity's work on Mars (Dec. 19, 2010). The view appears three-dimensional when seen through red-blue glasses with the red lens on the left.

The crater is about 90 meters (295 feet) in diameter. East-southeast (110 degrees) is at the center, west-northwest at both ends.

This panorama combines right-eye and left-eye views presented as cylindrical-perspective projections.
