The road ahead, Curiosity sol 1520
Immediately ahead and to the right of Curiosity in this photo is Ireson Hill, capped with an interesting new type of dark rock. In front of the rover is the southern stretch of the Bagnold dune field, which Curiosity explored from sols 1600 to about 1660. Beyond that is the newly named Vera Rubin ridge, Curiosity's next drive target.
