Interior of a well-preserved crater in Hesperia Planum. Beautiful Mars series.
Perched at the edge of an outflow channel, these two craters appear to have lost a portion of their crater rims during a flood event. Alternatively, it is also possible that the craters impacted the edge of the outflow channel … Continue reading
Those rugged slopes. Beautiful Mars series.
Ridges in a crater floor. Beautiful Mars series.
THEMIS Image of the Day, June 19, 2017. Do you see what I see? Shadows are just right to form googly eyes. (THEMIS Art #128). More THEMIS Images of the Day by geological topic.
Swoop! – Layers on the rim of an impact crater in the southern region of Mars. Beautiful Mars series.
THEMIS Image of the Day, June 14, 2017. Do you see what I see? Is that a momma holding a baby? (THEMIS Art #125) More THEMIS Images of the Day by geological topic.
It’s not that common to see craters on steep hills, partly because rocks falling downhill can quickly erase such craters. Here, however, a small impact occurred on the sloping wall of a larger crater and is well-preserved. Dark, blocky ejecta … Continue reading
THEMIS image of the Day, June 6, 2017. Today’s VIS image is of a group of craters in Solis Planum. Because three of the craters are overlapping it is possible to determine the order in which those three were created. … Continue reading
THEMIS Image of the Day, April 26, 2017. Today’s false color image shows several small craters in Aonia Terra. The false colors help show differences in the patterns of debris ejected in the impacts. The THEMIS VIS camera contains 5 … Continue reading
