MRO looks at Curiosity

As MSL enters Mars’ atmosphere, the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter will attempt to photograph it, along with receiving MSL’s radio signals for later rebroadcast to Earth.

Here’s an animation I made showing the predicted view of MRO’s HiRISE camera, using orbit and camera-pointing data published by NASA on their Navigation and Ancillary Information Facility (NAIF) website.

The background music is excerpted from Telegraphic, by Axoe.
