Description

A view from the "Rocknest" science stop of MSL Curiosity to the west, spanning a north to south arc and time/lighting ranging from early afternoon to the evening. Shadows and contours in the right part of the pan (northern direction) are quite pronounced due to low sun angle. Most deep shadow-areas in the northern section of the pan have been reworked to show deteials if possible.

MSL REMS (Sol72): min. -71°C max. -1°C
7.85 mBar

    Where can we see raw the raw images that are not blurred out?

    Bruncie - that is an overstitch from the rover arm. The raw images show this. Do you seriously think it's a space ship, or are you just joking?

    Why is that object on the far left photoshopped out?

    Do not let people tell lies any longer. That is a real spacecraft!

    That is a true spacecraft flying over Mars!

    Somehow these extreme foreground rover parts (out of focus due to close range to the lens)found its way into the panorama. As images of the panorama are from different Sols this is kind of the same method which made the complete rover self-potraits possible - in this case not for benefit though.
