Sometimes, like this time, words and technical data are not necessary. Just enjoy the scene...

This picture (which is an image-mosaic made of 11 (eleven) Original NASA - Mars Exploration Rover (MER) - Mars Laboratory - "Curiosity" b/w frames) has been additionally processed, magnified to aid the visibility of the details, Gamma corrected and then colorized in Absolute Natural Colors (such as the colors that a normal - meaning "in the average" - human eye would actually perceive if someone were on the Surface of Mars, near the NASA - Mars Exploration Rover (MER) - Mars Laboratory Curiosity, and then looked ahead, towards the Horizon and the Inner Walls of Gale Crater), by using an original technique created - and, in time, dramatically improved - by the Lunar Explorer Italia Team.
