Curiosity's 3rd quarter was busy (as usual). Here is a look at its travels, as suggested by Floyd on post #1560. I hope I've got it right! In all images North is at the top.

The path for sols 3164-3253 (July 1st to September 30th, 2021):

The above in a wider context (since November 30, 2017):

Zooming out to the landing ellipse and full path for the mission:

And the landing ellipse plus full path in the Gale crater context:

PS: a future similar update might, perhaps, only have the first two images and refer to this post for the wider contexts.

Great work, Nogal. I am finally catching up after being tied up with other things. Here's the map up to date for the time being.

EDIT: a forum reader has pointed out an error in my grid labelling. I will fix it for the next post. Thanks! - and I always welcome any corrections.
