Panoramic view of distant foothills, Curiosity sol 517
Filed under pretty pictures, amateur image processing, Mars, Curiosity (Mars Science Laboratory)
Curiosity looked toward the distant goal of the foothills of Aeolis Mons / Mount Sharp on sol 517 with her highest-resolution camera on sol 517 to take this photo. The band of rocky ground at the bottom is close to the rover; the topography drops beyond that, and the band of dark sand dunes is actually several kilometers away.
