Sedimentary layers at “Franklin Cliffs” are displayed in a mosaic captured by NASA’s Perseverance Mars rover using its Mastcam-Z camera on Feb. 12, 2023, the 704th Martian day, or sol, of the mission.
The mosaic is made up of three individual images that were stitched together after being sent back from Mars. This natural color view is approximately how the scene would appear to an average person if they were on Mars.
Franklin Cliffs, along with other locations like “Skrinkle Haven” and “Pinestand Mountain” may have been created as sediment built up here in an ancient river or delta.
