NASA's Mars rover Curiosity took 5 images in Gale Crater using its mast-mounted Right Navigation Camera (Navcam) to create this mosaic. The seam-corrected mosaic provides a 180-degree cylindrical-perspective projection panorama of the Martian surface suitable for stereo viewing, centered at 161 degrees azimuth (measured clockwise from north). This single-eye view must be combined with the partner left image to be viewed in stereo. Curiosity took the images on November 17, 2012, Sol 100 of the Mars Science Laboratory mission at drive 178, site number 5. The local mean solar time for the image exposures was 3 PM. Each Navcam image has a 45-degree field of view.
