NASA's Mars rover Curiosity took 19 image pairs in Gale Crater using its mast-mounted Navigation Camera (Navcam) to create this mosaic. The seam-corrected mosaic provides a 360-degree cylindrical perspective projection panorama of the Martian surface suitable for stereo viewing, centered at 311 degrees azimuth (measured clockwise from north). This anaglyph must be viewed with red/blue glasses (red over left eye). Curiosity took the images on August 23, 2012, Sol 16 of the Mars Science Laboratory mission at drive 78, site number 3. The local mean solar time for the image exposures was 2 PM. Each Navcam image has a 45-degree field of view.
