The tiny blue (color-enhanced) dot in this image is Curiosity, post-touchdown. This image was snapped by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter as the satellite flew overhead.
Curiosity landed in the Gale Crater. Soon it will begin its yearlong, four-mile trek to Mount Sharp, which is located out of frame to the southeast.
