Less than two weeks after touching down on the Red Planet, the Perseverance rover built and operated by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory has already sent back 6,395 photos from the surface of Mars as of Tuesday, which can be viewed online.

The SUV-size robotic science lab on wheels began busily snapping pictures the instant it landed on Feb. 18, both through low-resolution navigation cameras and high-definition full-color cameras.

After documenting its own dramatic descent to the surface of Mars, the rover has begun surveying its surroundings, examined itself and taken in a few Martian sunrises and sunsets.
