Curiosity: Clay-bearing viewpoint

2299-mastcam34Sol 2299, January 24, 2019. Using its wide-angle (34mm) camera, Curiosity’s Mastcam shot a five-frame view overlooking the reverse slope of Vera Rubin Ridge (foreground and top left).

Mission scientists and engineers are planning to drive Curiosity down off the ridge and onto the clay-bearing unit which lies ahead. This will be the next major geological feature to be explored by the rover. Click the image (6.9 MB) to enlarge it.
