Bird's Eye View of Curiosity

This self-portrait shows the deck of NASA's Curiosity rover from the rover's Navigation camera. The full-resolution images, taken from 360 degrees around the rover, are displayed here as a polar projection. The rim of Gale Crater can be seen at upper right.

This mosaic is made of 20 images, each of 1,024 by 1,024 pixels, taken late at night on Aug. 7 PDT (early morning Aug. 8 EDT). Seams between the images have been minimized as much as possible.
