In its 34th day on Mars, NASA's Curiosity is snapping pictures while it roams the red planet and sending them back to scientists on Earth.
In a self-portrait of sorts, the Mars rover used its Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) during the 34th Martian day. The image actually combines two photos, in the distance is Mount Sharp.
Another photo shows a U.S. penney which was used to calibrate the camera. A coin is often used by geologists as a scale reference in close-up photos and it also provides a familiar object for viewers to understand the size and scale of an object.
NASA's Curiosity shot the photos over the weekend. Visit NASA's Photo Journal Web page for more images.
NASA is expected to give an update later today as the rover's second month on the red planet begins.
