Curiosity Project Scientist Ashwin Vasavada gives a descriptive tour of the Mars rover's view in Gale Crater. The white-balanced scene looks back over the journey so far.
The view from "Vera Rubin Ridge" looks back over buttes, dunes and other features along the route. To see where the rover is now, visit https://mars.nasa.gov/msl/mission/whe...
To aid geologists, colors in the image are white balanced so rocks appear the same color as the same rocks would on Earth.
