NASA has released a series of new high-definition photos from Mars.

The images from the Martian surface were taken by different cameras on NASA's Curiosity rover over the past few weeks. The images depict the landing site, various features of Gale Crater, Mount Sharp and tracks created by the rover.

NASA has been releasing pictures since early August, when Curiosity landed on Mars. The first color photo, which was released on Aug. 7, had a hazy, poor quality, because the dust cover was coated with fine debris.

The new rich, high-resolution images include 360-degree color panoramas as well as animated GIFs.

Browse the latest photos released, including animated GIFs, and captions for each in the gallery below.

  • Mount Sharp

    This image taken by the Mast Camera on NASA's Curiosity rover highlights the geology of Mount Sharp, a mountain inside Gale Crater, where the rover landed.

  • Base Of Mount Sharp

  • South/Southwest Of Landing Site

    This photo is from a test series of the 100-millimeter Mast Camera on NASA's Curiosity rover. It is looking south-southwest of the landing site and taken on Aug. 23, 2012.

  • More From Mast Cam

    Another test photo from the Mast Camera on NASA's Curiosity Rover. Again, it's looking south-southwest on Aug. 23, 2012. The gravelly area of the landing site is visible in the foreground.

  • Landing Site

    The landing site is visibile here in this portion of a 360-degree color panorama along the heights of Mount Sharp.

  • Big Wheels Rolling

    This photo was taken by a front Hazard-Avoidance camera on NASA's Curiosity and shows track marks from the rover's first Martian drives.

  • Curiosity's Second Drive

    Track marks are seen here after the NASA Curiosity rover completes a successful drive to an area of bedrock.

  • Infinity Tracks

    The donut-shaped tracks shown here make an infinity symbol, following the first two drives from NASA's curiosity rover. The drives took place on Aug. 22 and Aug. 27, respectively.

  • Heights Of Mount Sharp

    The highest point of Mount Sharp visible from NASA's Curiosity rover is seen here in a high-resolution image taken on Aug. 18.
