Full-Circle Vista With a Linear Shaped Martian Sand DuneThe left side of this 360-degree panorama from NASA's Curiosity Mars rover shows the long rows of ripples on a linear shaped dune in the Bagnold Dune Field on the northwestern flank of Mount Sharp.
The view is a mosaic of images taken with Curiosity's Navigation Camera (Navcam) on Feb. 5, 2017, during the 1,601st Martian day, or sol, of the rover's work on Mars. The view is centered toward west-southwest, with east-southeast on either end. A capped mound called "Ireson Hill" is on the right. A map showing Curiosity's location on Sol 1601 is at http://mars.nasa.gov/multimedia/images/2017/curiosity-rovers-location-for-sol-1601.
