Sol 53: Tight view on rocks immediately in front of Perseverance
This mosaic consists of 10 images taken earlier today by the left Mastcam-Z camera and focuses on a few of the rocks immediately in front of Perseverance in the area accessible to its robotic arm. The amount of detail visible in the rocks is pretty amazing to look at! For context, check out yesterday’s mosaic image showing the wider area in front of the rover:
As a bonus, see if you can find the area of this SuperCam image taken a few hours beforehand! Full disclosure, I have not found it nor do I have any idea if it the area of this image actually appears in the mosaic:
