English: This mosaic of images from the Navigation Camera (Navcam) on NASA's Mars rover Curiosity shows the terrain to the west from the rover's position on the 528th Martian day, or sol, of the mission (Jan. 30, 2014). The images were taken right after Curiosity had arrived at the eastern edge of a location called "Dingo Gap." A dune across the gap is about 3 feet (1 meter) high in the middle and tapered at south and north ends onto low scarps on either side of the gap. The rover team is evaluating possible driving routes on the other side before a decision whether the cross the gap.

The view covers a panorama from south, at the left edge, to north-northwest at the right edge. It is presented as a cylindrical projection.

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, manages the Mars Science Laboratory Project for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington. JPL designed and built the project's Curiosity rover.

Polski: Mozaika połączonych zdjęć wykonanych przez kamerę nawigacyjną należącego do NASA łazika Curiosity, pokazuje teren położony na zachód od pozycji łazika aktualnej w 528 marsjańskim dniu, lub Sol, misji łazika na Marsie (30 stycznia 2014). Zdjęcie zostało wykonane po przybyciu Curiosity do wschodniej krawędzi lokalizacji nazwanej "Dingo Gap". Wydma przebiegająca w poprzek luki ma w środku wysokość około 1 metra i jest oparta na południowym i północnym końcu o niewysokie skarpy. Zespół kierujący pracą łazika oceniał inne możliwe trasy, zanim podjął decyzję o przejechaniu poprzez omawianą lukę. Widok obejmuje panoramę od południa, z lewej strony, do północnego zachodu, z prawej strony, co jest przedstawione w formie walcowego odwzorowania terenu.
