The rust color of the martian landscape is apparent in this low-resolution thumbnail image taken by the panoramic camera on the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit. This image is part of a Large currently stored onboard the rover in its memory.

This sprawling look at the martian landscape surrounding the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit is the first 3-D stereo image from the rover's navigation camera. A surface depression nicknamed "Sleepy Hollow" can be seen to center left of the image. Scientists theorize that this topographic feature, measuring about 10 meters (30 feet) in diameter and located approximately 10 to 20 meters (30 to 60 feet) away from Spirit, is either an impact crater or a product of wind erosion.

The bright white dot in this image taken by the panorama camera onboard the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit is the Sun, used to help point the rover's high-gain antenna toward Earth. The inset shows the Sun magnified five times.
