A Curiosity “Selfie” From Sol 868
Some selfie’s are out of this world…
Here’s a “selfie” of NASA’s Curiosity rover, made from about 20 images acquired by its MAHLI instrument on mission sol 868 (January 14, 2015). I used Photoshop to stitch the raw images together and then enhanced the contrast and detail with a bit of HDR effect. (There’s one spot behind the rover’s RTG where an image wasn’t available.)
Curiosity is currently in the “Pahrump Hills” region of Gale Crater, approaching the foothills of Mt. Sharp (Aeolis Mons).
