Cruising Across Mars

So it’s been a mild subtropical paradise here in Pomona, while on Mars, there appears to be clear skies and a desolate landscape of rocks, sand, dirt, and memorabilia of other eras.

Aqsieos, the Mars Curiosity rover is on a major cruise across the landscape on it’s way to Mt. Sharp. Here’s a couple of the latest of its photos!
