NASA pieced together the Mars rover Curiosity’s latest selfie of the Martian landscape from dozens of images taken by its robotic arm throughout January 2015. Showcasing the “Mojave 2” site of the planet, the frames that make up the picture of the rover were taken Jan. 14 of this year.

“Compared with the earlier Curiosity selfies, we added extra frames for this one so we could see the rover in the context of the full Pahrump Hills campaign,” according to a statement by rover team member Kathryn Stack from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
