NASA's Mars rover Curiosity drove 6.2 feet (1.9 meters) during the 100th Martian day, or sol, of the mission (Nov. 16, 2012). The rover used its Navigation Camera after the drive to record the images combined into this stereo, panoramic view.

The scene appears three-dimensional when viewed through red-blue glasses with the red lens on the left. The view spans from north at the left to south-southeast at the right. It is presented in a cylindrical-perspective projection.

Figure 1 is the left-eye member of the pair of images combined into the stereo view. Figure 2 is the right-eye view.

JPL, a division of the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, manages the Mars Science Laboratory Project for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington. JPL designed and built the rover.
