Original Caption Released with Image:

NASA's Curiosity Mars rover used its Mast Camera, or Mastcam, to capture this panorama while driving toward the center of this scene, an area that forms the narrow "Paraitepuy Pass," on Aug. 14, the 3,563rd Martian day, or sol, of the mission. The hill on the right is "Bolívar"; on the left of is "Deepdale." The floor of the vast Gale Crater is visible in the background in the upper right.

This panorama was stitched together from 146 images after they were sent back to Earth. The color has been adjusted to match the lighting conditions as the human eye would perceive them on Earth.

Curiosity was built by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which is managed by Caltech in Pasadena, California. JPL leads the mission on behalf of NASA's Science Mission Directorate in Washington. Malin Space Science Systems in San Diego built and operates Mastcam.
