Curiosity Rover Imaged by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter

Curiosity Rover Imaged by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter

This color-enhanced view of NASA's Curiosity rover on the surface of Mars was taken by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter as the satellite flew overhead. Colors have been enhanced to show the subtle color variations near the rover, which result from different types of materials. The descent stage blast pattern around the rover is clearly seen as relatively blue colors (true colors would be more gray). The scale of this image cutout is about 12 inches (31 centimeters) per pixel.
