NASA’s Mars Helicopter has new images taken from the sky during its latest 12th aerial lookout.

The famous mini-helicopter flew over the South Seitah region of Mars, with a round trip flight that pushed it up to 33 feet in altitude for 169 seconds, traveling a total of 1,475 feet.

These images were produced by the craft’s high-resolution color camera mounted in the helicopter’s fuselage and pointed approximately 22 degrees below the horizon.
