Mars Panorama Composite by Stuart Atkinson

“Finally, a spaceprobe takes a picture that shows Mars as it has
burned in my mind all these years,” said Stuart Atkinson via Twitter,
who created this mosaic from four separate raw color images taken
by the rover. The images were taken on Sept. 26, 2012 by the right
MastCam on Curiosity, then uploaded yesterday. They provide a
glimpse at the depth and distances the rover’s cameras can see,
with hills and the rim of Gale Crater off in the distance. (The rover is
looking towards the northeast.)
