Go Back

Curiosity on Mars from HiRISE, sol 145 HiRISE shot this view of Curiosity and its tracks, leading all the way back to the landing site, on January 2, 2013 (sol 145). Curiosity was in Yellowknife Bay, at the site from which it took the "Grandma's House" panorama.

The original image is ESP_030168_1755. The image contained a color swath that did not overlap the rover (it was taken as part of a campaign to acquire color imagery over parts of Curiosity's future traverse). Here are a couple of detail views:
