NASA's Mars rover Curiosity took 31 images in Gale Crater using its mast-mounted Right Navigation Camera (Navcam) to create this mosaic. The seam-corrected mosaic provides a 360-degree cylindrical projection panorama of the Martian surface centered at 196 degrees azimuth (measured clockwise from north). Curiosity took the images on June 10, 2024, Sol 4210 of the Mars Science Laboratory mission at drive 2496, site number 107. The local mean solar time for the image exposures was from 12 PM to 1 PM. Each Navcam image has a 45 degree field of view.
