An August 2015 panorama from the Mars Curiosity rover, released in September, shows petrified sand dunes on Mount Sharp.
A sweeping new panorama from NASA’s Curiosity rover shows petrified sand dunes stretching across the jagged terrain of Mount Sharp on Mars.
The panorama is based on dozens of individual images taken by the rover’s Mast Camera on Aug. 27. Since then, Curiosity has driven roughly 103 yards (94 meters) south of the site to look at more samples of the Stimson unit, according to NASA’s statement.
