Curiosity: Northern perspective

2480-navcamSol 2480, July 29, 2019. From atop the Southern Outcrop, five Navcam frames profile the exposed rock in front of Curiosity, as well as the terrain it has crossed to get here — note the two wheel tracks as they zigzag in the middle distance and at right. (The area under consideration for drilling lies roughly in the center of the exposure.)

Farther away a dark feature (Vera Rubin Ridge) winds across the ground, while more distant still the floor of Gale Crater stretches away until it reaches the inside face of the crater’s northern rim, which forms the horizon. Click the image to enlarge it.
