Curiosity's 360 panorama of 'Rock Hall'

2.8.2019

This panorama was taken on Dec. 19 (Sol 2265) by the Mast Camera (Mastcam) on NASA's Curiosity Mars rover. The rover's last drill location on Vera Rubin Ridge is visible, as well as the clay region it will spend the next year exploring.

The scene combines 122 images taken with Mastcam's left-eye camera. It is presented with a color adjustment that approximates white balancing to resemble how the rocks and sand would appear under daytime lighting conditions on Earth.

Malin Space Science Systems in San Diego built and operates the Mastcam. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the Caltech in Pasadena, California, manages the Mars Science Laboratory Project for NASA's Science Mission Directorate in Washington. JPL designed and built the project's Curiosity rover.
