This is pretty amazing!

NASA's Curiosity rover has captured its highest-resolution panorama yet of the Martian surface. Composed of more than 1,000 images taken during the 2019 Thanksgiving holiday and carefully assembled over the ensuing months, the composite contains 1.8 billion pixels of Martian landscape.

First time on Forums . . . First thing I looked at . . . I am completely hooked! As a kid only imagined a picture from Mars.

Just wonder what is seen in the track behind the rover.
In the 3rd "W" from the rover, there is something shining.
About Halfway down the visible track, a little to the left of the shining stuff, when zooming in, there is a stone which seems different in shape than the others which are much more rounded by weather.
Out of Curiosity, I just wonder if both are caused by the wheels, or maybe drive by testing?
