Caption

Rocknest site, Mars. View of a patch of windblown sand and dust (right) on the surface of Mars, known as the 'Rocknest' site, which was selected as the location for first use of the scoop on the arm of NASA's Curiosity rover. This view is a mosaic of images taken by the telephoto right-eye camera of the Mast Camera (Mastcam) during the 52nd Martian day, or sol, of the mission (28th September 2012), four sols before the rover arrived at Rocknest. The Rocknest patch is about 1.5 by 5 metres.
