Curiosity Daily Status Report for Aug. 31, 2012
Curiosity took a sol off from driving and spent time during the mission's Sol 25, on Aug. 31, 2012, taking images and collecting environmental monitoring data.
Imaging tasks for the sol included Navigation Camera sky observations to check for clouds, and Mast Camera imaging of the terrain eastward where the rover will be driving during the next few sols. In addition, the Mast Camera was used for taking a 360-degree panorama from the location that Curiosity reached by its Sol 24 drive.
