Misery outcrop, Curiosity sol 1591
Finely laminated rocks of the Murray formation greeted Curiosity at the end of its drive on sol 1591 (January 27, 2017). The bright veins are filled with calcium sulfate.

Six images were mosaicked and some blemishes (bleeding from hot pixels) painted out to create this mosaic.
