NASA's Mars rover Curiosity took 18 images in Gale Crater using its mast-mounted Right Navigation Camera (Navcam) to create this mosaic. The seam-corrected mosaic provides a 360-degree cylindrical projection panorama of the Martian surface centered at 180 degrees azimuth (measured clockwise from north). Curiosity took the images on December 02, 2013, Sol 470 of the Mars Science Laboratory mission at drive 0, site number 24. The local mean solar time for the image exposures was 3 PM. Each Navcam image has a 45 degree field of view.
