At 03:05:00 UTC the Mastcam Right filmed the new excavation in the rock performed by the Curiosity driller.
This drilling, called “Mary Anning 3”, is 1.6 cm wide and shows us the true color of the rock apart from the reddish layer that covers it.
Also in this case, as for the previous excavation (see, the excavated material appears of a very faded pink, although the inner part of the excavation shows some tenuous turns to blue. It will be very interesting to see if its evolution over time will follow that of the previous excavation with its almost identical appearance!
The original image has undergone noise reduction due to Jpeg compression, white balance and a slight increase in microcontrast and color saturation in order to make the colors more similar to what the human eye would see.
