Two high-resolution images (22a005.bb2 and 22a011.bb3) by the Viking 2 Lander camera 2 were mosaiced to create this scene of Utopia Planitia looking northeast to the horizon some three kilometers away. The rock in the lower right corner is 25 centimeters across. The largest rock near the center of the picture is about 60 centimeters long and 30 centimeters high. A small channel winds from upper left to lower right. The tilted horizon is due to the eight-degree tilt of the landed spacecraft.
