Curiosity Navcam panorama, sols 168-9
On sol 168, Curiosity took in the view of "Yellowknife Bay" in the foreground and the distant peak of Mount Sharp in the background. The "John Klein" sampling area is within reach of the robotic arm, which has pressed the APXS elemental analyzer against a spot of bedrock.
