Rock fins up to about 1 foot (30 centimeters) tall dominate this scene from the Panoramic Camera (Pancam) on NASA’s Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity. The component images were taken during the 3,058th Martian day, or sol, of Opportunity’s work on Mars (Aug. 23, 2012). The view spans an area of terrain about 30 feet (9 meters) wide. This outcrop is within an area informally named Matijevic Hill.
