In a few days NASA's Curiosity rover is going to celebrate its first year on Mars. Curiosity touched down on August 5, 2012, and the US space agency has just released this nice satellite photo of the 1-ton rover and its track inscribed into the Martian soil.

The High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter shot the image above on June 27, 2013. Curiosity is the bluish dot in the lower right corner of this enhanced-color view. The rover's zigzag tracks are visible from the landing site, "Bradbury Landing," to the rover.


Hello Curiosity!:

Here is the full shot:
