Curiosity: Checking out Muir of Ord

FRB_606125230EDR_F0750060FHAZ00302M_Sol 2350, March 17, 2019. It was St. Patrick’s Day on Earth, but Curiosity was squaring up to a rock named for a Scottish Highlands village. As the science team planned, Curiosity was moved a few meters to get a better look at the rock dubbed Muir of Ord.
