Mosaics

This Polar image was acquired by NASA's Mars rover Curiosity on Sol 135, at drive 1858, site number 5.
Last Updated: 2012-12-24 01:16:44 UTC
NASA's Mars rover Curiosity took 24 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 21, 2012, Sols 133-134 of the Mars Science Laboratory mission at drive 1858, site number 5. The local mean solar time for the image exposures was from 2 PM to 5 PM. Each Navcam image has a 45-degree field of view.
