As well as close-up images of the various fascinating features of the terrain, the Curiosity rover also continues to send back beautiful views of the landscape itself in Gale crater. One of the latest is this view from Yellowknife Bay on sol 141, where Curiosity is still doing its current investigations. Another wonderful panorama from Damien Bouic. The original largest version is here. All of Damien’s images, stitched together from the original Curiosity images, are here (the web site is in French).
