NASA Rover captures panoramic clips from the area named "Rock Hall" on Mars.

NASA's Curiosity Rover returned this amazing panorama picture known as "Rock Hall" on Mars to Earth.

The images on the surface of Mars show the numerous boreholes made by the probe on the rocky ridges of the red planet after more than a year of exploration.

This clip, recorded on January 19, shows the rocky terrain of the red planet.

According to the agency, Rover has identified a strong signal of hematite, an iron-rich mineral that is often produced in water.

Abigail Fraeman, curiosity science team member, said, "We are leaving with a different perspective on the ridge than before."

Videos shared online by NASA include images of Rover's next destination, which is the floor of Gayle Crater.

The new location of the probe is called a clay bearing unit, because the rocks in it contain clay minerals that form in the water, so you can learn more about ancient lakes in Gail Crater.

Curious project scientist Ashwin Vasavada says, "In addition to previously indicating a humid environment, clay minerals are known to capture and preserve organic molecules.

"It made the area particularly promising and the team is already investigating this area for the next drill site."

Last year NASA's insight Rover landed on a red planet.

InSight will spend two years investigating parts of Mars.
