Home The two prominent mesas in this Aug. 18, 2016, view of Mars’ “Murray Buttes” region from the Curiosity Mars rover’s Mastcam are about 260 feet (about 80 meters) apart. The one on the right is about 33 feet high, and its top is about 270 feet from the rover’s position when the images were taken.

This 360-degree panorama was acquired on Sept. 4, 2016, by the Mast Camera on NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover while the rover was in a scenic area called “Murray Buttes” on lower Mount Sharp. The flat-topped mesa near the center of the scene rises to about 39 feet above the surrounding plain. (NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS)
The top of the butte in this Sept. 1, 2016, scene from the Mast Camera (Mastcam) on NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover stands about 16 feet above the rover and about 82 feet east-southeast of the rover. The site is in the “Murray Buttes” area of lower Mount Sharp, and this particular butte is called “M9a.” (NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS)
