Incredible Martian Panoramic View!

Consisting of 16 separate images, the impressive vista was captured using the rover’s wide-angle lens.
The images were taken from the top of Vera Rubin Ridge at an elevation of 1,073ft.

“The component images were taken on Oct. 25, 2017, during the 1,856th Martian day, or sol, of the rover’s work on Mars,” NASA wrote. “At that point, Curiosity had gained 1,073 feet (327 meters) in elevation and driven 10.95 miles (17.63 kilometers) from its landing site.”

“Mount Sharp stands about 3 miles (5 kilometers) high in the middle of Gale Crater, which spans 96 miles (154 kilometers) in diameter. Vera Rubin Ridge is on the northwestern flank of lower Mount Sharp. The foreground of this panorama shows portions of lower Mount Sharp.”

Annotations showing Curiosity’s path across Gale Crater can also be viewed in the video below.

I have a lovely partner and 3 very active youngsters. We live in the earthquake ravaged Eastern Suburbs of Christchurch, New Zealand. I began commenting/posting on Uncensored back in early 2012 looking for discussion and answers on the cause and agendas relating to our quakes. I have always maintained an interest in ancient mysteries, UFOs, hidden agendas, geoengineering and secret societies and keep a close eye on current world events. Since 2013 I have been an active member of theCONTrail.com community, being granted admin status and publishing many blogs and discussion threads. At this time I'm now helping out with admin and moderation duties here at Uncensored where my online "life" began.
