Here is a truly magnificent photo of Mars where NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) photographed the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL), aka Curiosity, currently rolling around on Mars’s surface.

See that faint, blue dot in the middle of this NASA image? That is the Curiosity rover making its way up the rocky slopes of Mount Sharp. The remarkable image was captured on June 5, 2017.

The MRO orbits orbit around Mars equipped with the most powerful camera ever sent to Mars. The MRO used its so-called High-Resolution Imaging Science Experiment Camera (HiRISE) when it took this photograph about 450 kilometers above Mars.
