Curiosity sol 1126 self-portrait at Big Sky Curiosity took this self-portrait with its arm-mounted MAHLI camera on sol 1126, a few days after drilling in the Stimson unit at Big Sky. The portrait is a mosaic of dozens of images; the arm cannot photograph itself, so is not visible in the composite photo, although its shadow on the ground is.
