HiRISE view of Curiosity, sol 1094 (September 4, 2015) When Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter took this photo, Curiosity was traveling south across the rhythmic ridges of the Stimson unit, approaching Bagnold Dunes. HiRISE stared almost directly downward through relatively clear skies to take this photo, so it's especially crisp.
