A series of daily drives has taken NASA's Mars Rover Curiosity to a vantage point about halfway to a science destination area called Glenelg. The rover has been using its Mast Camera to examine the area ahead and also to catch special occasions when the Martian moons Phobos and Deimos pass in front of the sun from the rover's point of view.
