Late Afternoon on Mars

Explanation: Shadows grow long near sunset in this wide panoramic view from the Curiosity rover on Mars. Made with Curiosity’s navcam, the scene covers about 200 degrees from north through east to south (left to right), stitched together from frames taken by the Mars rover on sol 2616. That’s just Earth date December 16. Curiosity is perched on top of a plateau on Western Butte. The distant northern rim of Gale crater is visible along the left. Near center is Central Butte, already visited by Curiosity. On the right, the shadow of the rover seems to stretch toward the base of Aeolis Mons (Mount Sharp), a future destination. The monochrome navcam frames have been colorized to approximate the colors of the late martian afternoon.

说明:这幅由好奇号火星探测车拍摄的全景影像呈现了日落时分逐渐变长的好奇号阴影。这幅影像是由好奇号的导航摄像机在火星日2616(地球日12月16日)拍摄的照片拼接而成,它覆盖了从北到东再到南(从左到右)大约200度的天区。好奇号降落在火星西部山丘的一处高地上。影像左侧可以看到遥远的盖尔环形山北缘。靠近影像中心的是中央山丘,已经被好奇号造访过了。影像右侧可见探测车的阴影似乎朝着未来目的地-夏普山的山脚延伸。这些由导航摄像机拍摄的单色影像已经过着色,接近火星傍晚时的颜色。
