Original Caption Released with Image:

NASA's Curiosity Mars rover captured this image of the sulfate-bearing region and upper Mount Sharp in a dust haze on May 26, 2022, the 3,485th Martian day, or sol, of the mission. The panorama is made up of 46 individual images – captured during an especially dusty time of the Martian year – that were stitched together once the images were sent back to Earth.

The images were captured using Curiosity's Mast Camera, or Mastcam. Curiosity was built by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California, which leads the mission on behalf of NASA's Science Mission Directorate in Washington. Malin Space Science Systems in San Diego built and operates Mastcam.
