Mount Remarkable, the Kimberley, Mars (Curiosity sol 590)
Filed under pretty pictures, amateur image processing, Mars, Curiosity (Mars Science Laboratory)
On sol 590, Curiosity paused to take an enormously detailed Mastcam-100 panorama of the Kimberley. This is a tiny detail, focused on Mount Remarkable, the southernmost of the three buttes defining Kimberley's corners. Several different varieties of layered sandstones underlie the butte.
