Curiosity: MAHLI looks at Kopong outcrop

1474-mahliSol 1474, September 28, 2016. The Mars Hand-Lens Imager (MAHLI) has made a multi- frame composite (big: 5.9 MB) that sweeps down across the Kopong outcrop. (The area shown lies at the left end of the outcrop as imaged here, and MAHLI’s viewing angle is more straight-on to the outcrop’s end.)

The close-up views detail the rock’s weathering texture and the light mineral veins, probably calcite, which lace through it. Click image to enlarge.
