Not only do repeat images help us track changes over time, they can be useful to active missions when planning a rover’s next moves. This observation in a region near the Curiosity rover was obtained in 2020 to look for changes, however small, that have occurred here since the global dust storm in 2018. The rover has since moved on from this location.
