Landing Site Panorama, with the Heights of Mount Sharp This color panorama shows a 360-degree view of the landing site of NASA's Curiosity rover, including the highest part of Mount Sharp visible to the rover. That part of Mount Sharp is approximately 12 miles (20 kilometers) away from the rover.

The Heights of Mount Sharp. With the addition of four high-resolution Navigation Camera, or Navcam, images, taken on Aug. 18 (Sol 12), Curiosity's 360-degree landing-site panorama now includes the highest point on Mount Sharp visible from the rover. Mount Sharp's peak is obscured from the rover's landing site by this highest visible point.

Getting to Know Mount Sharp This image taken by the Mast Camera on NASA's Curiosity rover highlights the interesting geology of Mount Sharp, inside Gale Crater, where the rover landed. The train of white dots may represent an "unconformity," or an area where the process of sedimentation stopped. Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS

View of Mount Sharp from NASA's Mars rover Curiosity

This mosaic of images from the Mast Camera (Mastcam) on NASA's Mars rover Curiosity shows Mount Sharp in a white-balanced color adjustment that makes the sky look overly blue but shows the terrain as if under Earth-like lighting. White-balancing helps scientists recognize rock materials based on their experience looking at rocks on Earth. The Martian sky would look more of a butterscotch color to the human eye.

Wheels and a Destination. This view of the three left wheels of NASA's Mars rover Curiosity combines two images that were taken by the rover's Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) during the 34th Martian day, or sol, of Curiosity's work on Mars (Sept. 9, 2012). In the distance is the lower slope of Mount Sharp.
