NASA - Mount Sharp on the Horizon

Mount Sharp on the Horizon. This is a portion of the first color panorama from NASA's Curiosity rover, made up of thumbnails, which are small copies of higher-resolution images.

A southward-looking panorama combining images from both cameras of the Mast Camera (Mastcam) instrument on NASA's Curiosity Mars Rover shows diverse geological textures on Mount Sharp.

"The four main pieces of hardware that arrived on Mars with NASA's Curiosity rover were spotted by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO). The High-Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera captured this image about 24 hours after landing." The dark areas are not scorching as you might think, but places where the bright dust has been blown away, revealing darker rock beneath, including the darker area around the lander.
