Sol 610 Update On Curiosity From USGS Scientist Ken Herkenhoff: Western Sky

23 April 2014

The Sol 610 plan contains fairly simple, untargeted observations, including Mastcam and Navcam mosaics and a series of Navcam images of the western sky right after the sun sets behind Mt. Remarkable. Overnight, ChemCam will point at the dark sky and obtain calibration data, measuring thermal noise.
