NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit used its panoramic camera (Pancam) to record a 360-degree vista, dubbed the "Seminole" panorama, from partway down the south side of "Husband Hill" in November 2005. This view is the right-eye member of a stereo pair for creating three-dimensional versions of the Seminole panorama.

The images combined into this mosaic were taken through the Pancam's infrared R2 filter during Spirit's 672nd through 677th Martian days (Nov. 23 through Nov. 28, 2005). Geometric and brightness adjustments have been applied. The view is presented in a cylindrical-perspective projection with rover tilt removed.
