Sol 120 Panorama from Curiosity, near 'Shaler'
Date: 7 Dec 2012

The NASA Mars rover Curiosity used its Navigation Camera (Navcam) during the mission's 120th Martian day, or sol (Dec. 7, 2012), to record the seven images combined into this panoramic view.

The scene spans from north-northwest at the left to south-southwest at the right, and is presented in a cylindrical projection. The layered outcrop in the foreground is called "Shaler."

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, manages the Mars Science Laboratory Project for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington. JPL designed and built the project's Curiosity rover.
