Namib dune, Gale crater, Mars, Curiosity sol 1194 Namib is an isolated barchan (crescent-shaped) dune which has been observed from orbit to move over time. On sol 1194 (December 16, 2015), Curiosity approached the southern face of the dune, the steep slip face down which sand cascades as the dune marches slowly southward. NASA / JPL / Thomas Appéré
