Curiosity Daily Status Report for Aug. 31, 2012
Curiosity took a sol off from driving and spent time during the
mission's Sol 25, on Aug. 31, 2012, taking images and collecting
environmental monitoring data.
Imaging tasks for the sol included Navigation Camera sky
observations to check for clouds, and Mast Camera imaging of the
terrain eastward where the rover will be driving during the next
few sols. In addition, the Mast Camera was used for taking a
360-degree panorama from the location that Curiosity reached by
its Sol 24 drive.
Sol 25, in Mars local mean solar time at Gale Crater, ends at
11:59 p.m. Aug. 31, PDT.
