Curiosity: Around the butte, and through the gap…

1446-navcam2Sol 1446, August 30, 2016. Three Navcam frames show the rover’s route forward, as it rounds the wide east-west butte (left) that has stood blocking views of Mt. Sharp. The butte on the right flank of the gap is the last Murray Butte that Curiosity will drive past at close range. (Click image to enlarge.)

The view from the gap will reveal Mt. Sharp from its base to the summit, which should be spectacular. The rover’s next waypoint of note will be the Bagnold Dune Field, roughly one kilometer ahead after Curiosity rolls through the gap.
