  Geological Contact Zone Near 'Marias Pass' On Mars

Geological Contact Zone Near 'Marias Pass' On Mars
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS

Uploader comment: This view from the Mast Camera (Mastcam) on NASA's Curiosity Mars rover shows a site where two different types of bedrock meet on lower Mount Sharp. The scene combines multiple images taken by the left-eye camera of Mastcam on May 25, 2015, during the 995th Martian day, or sol, of Curiosity's work on Mars, in a valley just below "Marias Pass." The color has been approximately white-balanced to resemble how the scene would appear under daytime lighting conditions on Earth.
