NASA's Curiosity Mars rover took this snappy snap of itself at the "Rock Hall" drill site, located on Vera Rubin Ridge.

In fact, there are 57 individual images here – all taken by the Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI), a camera on the end of the rover’s robotic arm – then stitched together into a panorama.

The scene is slightly dustier than usual, NASA says, due to a regional dust storm.
