'Esperance6' and 'Lihir' Rover Targets

This false-color view was taken by the panoramic camera (Pancam) on NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on the 3,230th Martian day, or sol, of the rover's mission (Feb. 23, 2013). The rock targets known as "Esperance6," and "Lihir," are shown. Esperance6 was deeply abraded with the rover's rock abrasion tool. These rocks are part of the Matijevic formation located on "Matijevic Hill" on the rim of Endeavour Crater. The scene shown is approximately 27.6 inches (70 centimeters) across. An unlabeled image of these rocks is at http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA17074 .
