Navcam panorama of the Kimberley science stop from the north, Curiosity sol 574
Filed under pretty pictures, Mars, Curiosity (Mars Science Laboratory)
Curiosity took this panorama while parked about 4 meters to the north of the Kimberley, an outcrop of rock that the mission terms the "striated unit" because of its stripey appearance as seen from space. From the ground, the striated unit shows itself to be tilted sandstone layers.
