NASA's Mars rover Curiosity took 10 images in Gale Crater using its mast-mounted Left Navigation Camera (Navcam) to create this mosaic. The seam-corrected mosaic provides a polar stereographic projection panorama of the Martian surface with 0 degrees azimuth (measured clockwise from north) at the top of the image. Curiosity took the images on December 18, 2012, Sol 130 of the Mars Science Laboratory mission at drive 1662, site number 5. The local mean solar time for the image exposures was from 1 PM to 2 PM. Each Navcam image has a 45-degree field of view.
