NASA's Curiosity rover just aced a bit of atmospheric science on Mars.

The Curiosity rover, now nearing its 10th year of exploring the Red Planet, took imagery of clouds drifting over its exploration site on Mount Sharp (Aeolis Mons) with an aim to measuring their speed.

But it wasn't an easy task, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory noted in a blog post on Monday (Feb. 15), as Curiosity's cameras aren't designed to look up at the sky.

Rather, the rover's cameras were meant for imaging Mars rocks and landscape features on its journey to seek ancient signs of habitability.
