NASA's Curiosity Project Scientist Ashwin Vasavada gives a descriptive tour of the Mars rover's view in Gale Crater. The scene from "Vera Rubin Ridge" looks back over the journey so far, including buttes, dunes and other features along the route.

To aid geologists, colors in the image are white balanced so rocks appear the same color as the same rocks would on Earth.
