Curiosity You Have Been Spotted

Curiosity spotted by HiRISE.jpg


The resolution of the HiRISE camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter is something to behold. The image above shows the winding tracks of the Curiosity rover starting in the top just left of centre of the image. See if you can spot the rover itself…….





If you couldn’t spot it it looks a bit like a bluebottle fly just up from the left of centre of the bottom of the image. The rover is currently using its robotic arm tools on the 5 metre high butte, called Mount Remarkable.
