InSight first image from Elysium Planitia

The first view of Mars by the InSIGHT lander, captured just after 12 noon PST on Nov. 26, 2018. The dust cover is still on the lens, so there's debris visible but you can see the terrain and horizon beyond. Eventually the cover will be removed for surface operations. This version has been edited to bring out detail; see the original at mars.nasa.gov/resources/22159/insights-first-image-from-m...
