About this image

This VIS image of Gale Crater shows part of the huge layered deposit that covers much of the crater floor. The top of the image shows part of the crater rim, including one of the many small channels that drain to the crater floor. A series of dark dunes surround the inner layered deposit, appearing darker than the other materials in this image. Gale Crater is the home of the Curiosity Rover.
