Curiosity is still perched on top of Teal Ridge to investigate a fascinating outcrop that caps the ridge. The above Navcam image shows the view off to the right of Curiosity. The ridge-capping material is visible in the foreground, and the background shows where Curiosity is going to drive to next. We are spending part of the weekend characterizing the ridge-capping material, but a majority of the weekend plan will be devoted to SAM activities to look for methane.
