Between 04:50:01 UTC and 04:53:19 UTC Opportunity’s Pancam takes three images with narrow band filters in the three basic colors, from which it was possible to derive this true color image of this beautiful rock formation on the Martian soil
The original images (especially in green and blue) have a high level of “noise” and so I applied a noise filter to all three colors to eliminate the spurious dots (“despeckle” filter).
I will never get tired of pointing out how the color variety of certain rocks often depends on “something” present mostly on the surface of the rocks themselves. In particular certain greenish streaks should receive more attention from astrobiologists!
