The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) will attempt to photograph the Curiosity as it descends into Gale Crater on August 6 (or August 5, depending on your time zone.) This video plots the trajectories of the two spacecraft right around the time of descent. The time shown is the time on Mars--due to light time delay, it will be observed about 14 minutes later on Earth.
