The Confidence Hills work area at the edge of Pahrump Hills outcrop, Curiosity sol 777 Curiosity took this Navcam panorama of her Confidence Hills work area on sol 777, after completing most of her work there. The two drill holes are at upper left, below the robotic arm turret. The turret is positioned where it was when a fault stopped arm activities on sol 775, with the MAHLI camera pointed toward the drill hole. Near the bottom center is the dump pile, where Curiosity deposited the portion of the Confidence Hills drill tailings that did not pass through the 150-micrometer sieve in the sample handling mechanism. Most of this panorama was taken on sol 777 (October 13), but the images of Mount Sharp were taken on sol 758 (September 23).
