A Panorama of Mars from Larry's Lookout


Explanation:
Scroll right to see a breathtaking panorama of Mars from Larry's Lookout.

The lookout occurs near the peak of
Husband Hill in the Columbia Hills.

The summit of Husband Hill is visible 200 meters in the distance
toward the center of the 360-degree near-true-color picture.

The robot rover Spirit took images that compose the
above mosaic over four
Martian days.

After taking the image sequence,
Spirit carefully
picked its way to toward Husband Hill's summit.

On the far right, near distant rover tracks,
is a recently investigated area dubbed
Paso Robles that was found to contain high amounts of
sulfur.
