“This view of the downwind face of ‘Namib Dune’ on Mars covers 360 degrees, including a portion of Mount Sharp on the horizon,” explained the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. “The site is part of the dark-sand ‘Bagnold Dunes’ field along the northwestern flank of Mount Sharp.”
The component images of the scene were taken on Dec. 18, 2015 by the Curiosity rover’s Mast Camera, according to NASA.
