Historical Context:
As NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover neared features called Murray Buttes on lower Mount Sharp, its mast camera acquired this 360-degree panorama. The scene is presented with a color adjustment that approximates white balancing, to resemble how the rocks and sand would appear under daytime lighting conditions on Earth. White balancing makes it much easier for scientists to identify minerals.
