Lothrian - Sol 2250

Uncalibrated left MastCam image of the worksite "Lothrian". This location contains an outcrop of "Red Jura", an apparently hematite-rich layer of the Jura member of the Murray formation. Curiosity was originally intended collect a drill sample at this site, but the rocks were found to be too fractured to safely drill.
