Perseverance’s Mastcam-Z Views Ingenuity’s 47th Takeoff
NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter is seen here at the starting point of its 47th flight on Mars.
The rotorcraft landed – off camera – at Airfield “Iota.” The video was captured by the Mastcam-Z imager aboard NASA’s Perseverance rover on March 9, 2023.
At the time the video was taken, the rover was about 394 feet (120 meters) from the helicopter. Animation available at https://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA25686
