COVER A portion of the "Mission Success" panorama acquired by the Pancam instrument onboard the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit on 8 January 2004, around 10:30 a.m. local solar time. The view is to the east; the Columbia Hills in the distance are about 2.5 km away and 100 to 200 m in height. This is an approximate true-color rendering of the scene generated from Pancam's 750-nm, 530-nm, and 480-nm filters. See page 793. [Photo: NASA/JPL/Cornell]
