PATHFINDER TAKES IMAGE OF TWIN PEAKS ON MARS
Mars Pathfinder took this image of the Twin Peaks, which are modest-size hills to the southwest of the Mars Pathfinder landing site. They were discovered on the first panoramas taken by the IMP camera on the 4th of July, 1997, and subsequently identified in Viking Orbiter images taken over 20 years ago. The peaks are approximately 30-35 meters (-100 feet) tall. North Twin is approximately 860 meters (2800 feet) from the lander, and South Twin is about a kilometer away (3300 feet). The color balance was adjusted to approximate the true color of Mars. The first of two Mars Rovers, Spirit, is scheduled to land on the planet on Saturday, January 3, 2004, and begin taking pictures within hours. (UPI Photo/NASA)
