This is another beautiful new panoramic image from Damia Bouic, showing Mount Sharp in the distance and thinly layered outcrops in the foreground on sol 548. Curiosity has just passed through Violet Valley and is making good progress toward the base of Mount Sharp, which is still about 5 kilometres (3 miles) away. The full-size version of the image is here.
