This image shows the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit´s "hand," or the tip of the instrument deployment device, poised in front of the rock nicknamed Adirondack. In preparation for grinding into Adirondack, Spirit cleaned off a portion of the rock´s surface with a stainless steel brush located on its rock abrasion tool, seen here at the top of its hand. The image was taken by the rover´s panoramic camera.



The only data sets that show this flag are in Sol 30 and Sol 34,but this perspective is not there:


Sol 30

marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov...


Sol 34

marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov...


Again Nasa is not providing the raw data that is used in the press images that appear to show the true color of mars.

I too find it strange how NASA selects which images they colorize and which pictures are shown.

Yes you can, but there is no way of telling what filters were used to create it. It cannot be reproduced.

NASA claims on it's page:

"Much of the information coming from Spirit over the past few days has been engineering data. As any new images arrive from Spirit, they will be posted here. Stay tuned, Spirit is on the mend."

The data for this particular data is not there, and the data from the supposed Sol 26 set was received over a week ago and still is not up.
